50 Cent Publicly Backs Donald Trump Because He Doesn't 'Want To Be 20 Cent'
50 Cent has ruffled a few feathers after declaring he will be voting for US president Donald Trump in the US election next month.
The 'Window Shopper' hitmaker, real name Curtis James Jackson III, explained in a post to social media that he disagreed with Joe Biden's plan to raise taxes if he were to be elected, and therefore will be voting for Republican Donald Trump.
"Yeah, i don't want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very, bad idea. i don't like it !" the rapper wrote on Twitter.

Fans were quick to criticise the star, with one commenting on the post saying: "Taxation can be negotiated, but 220k dead people can't be brought back. This is bigger than money 50."
Another noted that such a proposal wouldn't affect the average American, only the very wealthy, saying: "We are poor, you are not. We are the 99%, you are the 1%. What about doing what's best for the USA and for us? No, spoiled rich celebs always think they know what's best but have NO IDEA!"
The double-down comes after the 45-year-old posted earlier this week that fans should 'VOTE For TRUMP'. Fiddy says the political announcement came after he had reviewed Biden's tax plan, which would see tax rates raised for corporations and those making $400,000 or more per year.
"WHAT THE F**K!" he wrote alongside an image of a news broadcast that stated that New York would be taxed at a rate of 58 per cent and New York City at 62 per cent under Biden's proposed policy.

"(VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, F**K NEW YORK," he continued, adding, "The KNICKS never win anyway."
"I don't care Trump doesn't like black people 62% are you out of ya f***ing mind."
Following Fiddy's declaration, fans and fellow celebrities have responded, with former talk show host and rumoured ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler commenting: "You used to be my favourite ex-boyfriend."

He replied to the comedian in a retweet: "Oh my God this is effecting my love life now. @chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don't let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl."
It seems that it wasn't just Chelsea who was put off by 50's political leanings, with one fan writing: "I used to have a huge crush on you! Your smile used to give me a WAP... but now? Ugh! The quickest way to turn off a woman is to tell them you support Trump. What happened to you man? I used to respect you."
