Rapper 50 Cent made an appearance on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to speak with lawmakers about creating generational wealth for black Americans. While there, the recording artist said black men are “identifying with” presidential hopeful Donald Trump over President Joe Biden.

The 48-year-old celebrity, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, stated his opinions from the perspective of a business person and liquor company owner. 50 Cent appeared with famed civil rights attorney Ben Crump to promote black representation in the liquor industry. 

“This is really exciting for me to be here. I got a chance to meet with both sides today, and it feels really good,” he said. “[Lawmakers] don’t agree on a lot of stuff, and so to get them to agree on seeing me was an accomplishment in itself.”

“My experience here has been great,” Jackson continued. “I went to talk to them about economic opportunities for everybody, and it’s really exciting. The response I got makes me feel that there’s bright things ahead of us.”

When CBS News congressional correspondent Nikole Killion asked about who he’s endorsing in the upcoming presidential election, the rapper said he hasn’t made a choice yet. 

50 Cent also said he believes black men could be more likely to back Trump now. “I see them identifying with Trump. Because they got RICO charges,” he told Killion, referring to a RICO charge in the Georgia election interference case.

As he mentioned, the rapper met with representatives on both sides of the political aisle during his visit. He posted a photo of himself with Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) to X. 

“Speaker of the house (sic) Mike Johnson (R) my fellow Shreveport friend said he is happy to see me making things happen creating lots of jobs,” Jackson shared in the caption.

The Grammy Award-winning artist publicly endorsed Donald Trump in the 2020 election but later backtracked in a social media exchange with his ex-girlfriend, comedian Chelsea Handler.


“He says he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent in taxes — which, by the way, isn’t a plan of Joe Biden’s, that’s a lie — so he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from being 50 Cent to 20 Cent,” Handler told Jimmy Fallon in 2020. 

“I had to remind him that he was a black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump, and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook,” she added.

50 Cent responded by tweeting a clip of the exchange and adding the caption, “a what, another spin, Fu*k Donald Trump, I never liked him,” it said.
