50 Cent Has His Say On Whether The Honey Monster Is Racist

50 Cent Has His Say On Whether The Honey Monster Is Racist

I seem obsessed with Honey G. First I covered the revelation she is, in fact, David Cameron.

Then I reported that she's due to play in Fife, Scotland, the same night as the X Factor Grand Final at Wembley.

Now I'm telling you that none other than Fiddy has put his two cents in and then decided to times that by 25 and he's come to the conclusion that we should all embrace the artist who says she's from 'North Weezy'.

Hip hop artist 50 Cent, born Curtis James Jackson III, and who is labelled as a rapper, singer, actor, businessman and investor, is known for massive hits such as 'In Da Club', 'Just A Lil Bit' and 'Candy Shop' ft Olivia, and he believes that Honey G is performing perfectly acceptable raps.

This comes amidst reports that the Honey Monster has been blasted racist because she talks and raps in a style synonymous with a different culture to her own and that she has adopted cultural appropriation which, to some people, is racist.

This is obviously a ridiculous accusation, as stupid as someone telling Ali Campbell he can't sing Reggae because although he grew up with Afro-Caribbean influences, he isn't actually Afro-Caribbean.

She was particularly lambasted after performing Motown hit 'I'm Coming Out' by Diana Ross, and decided to spit some bars while she was at it, in her own inimitable style.

Here is her performance which, although pretty bad in my opinion, is certainly not in any way racist.

But perhaps the most incredible moment of this article is a line from the original article where it was sourced, at The Daily Star. This is copy from the writer, who genuinely put this:

"But 50 Cent, who is black, said"...

This is possibly the oddest thing I've seen for a while, said me, Patrick Hulbert, who is white.

Here's what Fiddy had to say about Honey G:

"People be crazy saying Honey G's act is racist.

"For anybody who thinks a white person performing music of black origin is racist, you know they don't know what racism really is.

"Come and speak to real victims of racism who have seen their kids shot up. These people complaining ain't got a clue.

"A middle-aged white woman rapping along to Dre and Tupac ain't even close to being racist."

This is something that, in my opinion, you can't argue with.

Furthermore, Fiddy actually gave her some praise, too.

"She is entertaining, and I guarantee there is not going to be a hip-hop artist in the world who is going to be offended by her.

"I would like to see her go far. At least she is bringing some happiness into the world. My message to her is haters always gonna hate - rise above it."

Yes Curtis!

Screw it, come on Honey G, real name David Cameron Anna Gilford.

For my dime times five, if people wish to take inspiration from other cultures, so be it. I'm not going to be insulted if someone from the Far East, Middle East or Caribbean starts talking about the weather, drinking tea and enjoys eating fish and chips every day. It's the 21st century, we're more connected than ever. It may seem odd, but it's not racist.

All together now...

When I say Honey, you say...
