Rapper 50 Cent got jokes, and he’s not done with Lil Wayne. The New Orleans rapper, born Dwayne Carter has become inundated with criticism for his staunch support of Donald Trump. Meanwhile, 50 Cent at one point made fans feel as though he was in support of Trump as well but later backtracked.
In October, headlines broke that 50 Cent had just made claims that he would be voting for Donald Trump. This news came after a post on social media by the Power actor that denounced Biden’s proposed tax plan, which would raise federal income taxes on those who earn $400,000 or more. Of course, the Internet wasn’t happy about that but 50, who moves to the beat of his own drum, later implied that he was joking.
Lil Wayne’s endorsement, however, was not a joke. The rapper stamped his approval of Donald Trump so much so that he took a meeting and a photo op with him during a visit at the White House, which he proudly pushed onto his followers. “Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership,” Lil Wayne tweeted. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”

50 Cent, who never wastes an opportunity to troll someone, joined fans who quickly shared their disapproval. The rapper shared the photo along with TMZ’s article of the Trump/Tunechi pair along with the caption “oh no… Wayne, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE.”
In another Twitter post, 50 cent then shared a meme of a white man holding a BLM sign in an apparent stand off with a Black man in a cowboy hat waving a confederate flag. The Queens rapper captioned the post simply with a laughing emoji while stating it was a depiction of “Lil Wayne Vs. Eminem.”

Eminem’s inclusion in 50 cent post came on the heels of his endorsement for Biden. The Detroit rapper shared a video that had his hit “Lose Yourself” as its soundtrack, encouraging his followers to vote for Joe Biden. “One opportunity… #Vote,” he tweeted.
50 cent also shared in an interview with The Breakfast Club that Wayne “easily” got paid for his photo op with Trump. “Yeah, I’m sure,” the rapper said. “Easily he got paid. He had the sweater and the picture.” In the same interview he shared that he initially was offered to perform at the inauguration and turned it down.
Wayne also got political in the past as he had harsh criticism for former President Bush after his inaction for with Hurricane Katrina. On his Dedication 2 mixtape he included a song entitled “Georgia… Bush / Weezy’z Ambitionz” the lyrics include “When you see them Confederate flags, you know what it is/A white cracker [MF] that probably voted for him.” A far cry from where the rapper seems to be now.
