50 Cent’s lips are sealed on 2012 endorsement
The clock is ticking, 50 Cent
The 36-year-old rapper recently told the Wall Street Journal that he was undecided on whom to endorse for president in 2012 because he didn’t want to speak too soon and see his pick lose in the primary race, as he did in 2008.
During the previous election cycle, the hip-hop sensation pushed for Mrs. Clinton, expressing doubt that the country could accept a black president.
“I’m not sure America is ready to have a black president. I think they might kill him,” 50 Cent said at the time. “You’ve got to be conscious of racism, period. … And it’s still there. We don’t deal with it as often as my grandparents did. My grandparents grew up in South Carolina, so they experienced the heart of that.”
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly said 50 Cent was making a “pinhead comment.”
Though he sent the warm fuzzies to Mr. Obama, 50 Cent confessed that he wasn’t certain he would support either candidate or keep up with the 2008 Democratic race.
“To be honest, I haven’t been following that anymore. I lost my interest,” 50 Cent said. “I listened to some of the debates and things that they were saying, and I just got lost in everything that was going on. … Don’t look for my vote, for me to determine nothing on that. Just say, ‘50 Cent, he don’t know, so don’t ask Fiddy.’”
