I’ve been wanting to comment on 50 Cent’s rampant commercialism ever since I heard of his new brand of water. I would call him a sell out, but that would imply he had integrity at some point. Apparently in the rap community making your living selling crack to people in your community, then using that money to buy guns, cars, and diamonds and gold that starving Africans mined from the Earth gives you credibility.
50 Cent is everything that is wrong with rap. Besides the obligatory mysogyny, homophobia, and materialism, he seems to be the rapper that made it cool to start beef and shoot people again. I thought after Biggie and Tupac rappers chilled out a bit and realized dying prevented them from making more horrible albums.
