50 Cent Inspired By His Trip To Africa

Earlier this month, 50 Cent took a trip to Africa to further his humanitarian works. The rapper says he is making a difference, and since a visit to the continent, he is a changed man.

Reflecting on the trip, he said the visit has inspired him, which will make him to hit the studio. During an interview with the Associated Press, Fif said that his lyrics are motivated by his experiences in Kenya but that fans will have to listen closely to interpret his message.

“I’ve put portions of my experience there in the actual songs, but it’s so small that they’ll have to listen to get it,” he said. “I wanted to keep the record, creatively, in a space where when people listen to it, they just enjoy it before they can really understand what it was I’m saying; there’s things on it that have double meanings.”

“It enlightened me in different ways,” he said. “To actually see people under the circumstances that I saw was a totally different experience. I don’t think you can prepare yourself for that, no matter how many times you’ve seen the images.”

Fiddy has made it his mission to stop hunger in Africa, donating proceeds from sales of his energy drink Street King to the cause. He explained how seeing hunger firsthand has inspired him and that he’s provided more than 3.5 million meals so far.

    Bush certainly does not judge nnoyae by skin color. No American President has ever done more for disease prevention or financial aid for Africa. His choices for Secretary of State were not white people , they were the best people for that position. Anyone that thinks otherwise is ignorant.Regarding Katrina. Get an education here folks. The Response has steps. The First Responsibility is at State Level. It is called Execution of the State Disaster Response Plan. The Governor of the Statepulls the trigger on that Plan at State level and requests assistance from FEMA only after the State Plan is put in action. The Governor of Louisiana FAILED on that incident. Federal intervention only happened after the State FAILED to execute their Plan. Lets get that straight right now. Had the Federal Government pre-empted the Lawful Authority of the Governor of Louisiana it would have been a Violation of Federal Law! Read the US Constitution before You even think about getting snippy with me on that, OK?By the time the Feds got involved, it was very ugly. The Federal Government was forced to act after the State Response FAILED their Citizens. I am so tired of having to hear the BS about that. Do Your Homework.I am damned tired of seeing the New Racism from the likes of Kanye West, Jeremiah Wright, the Nation of Islam, the Black Congressional Caucus and Others that feel Entitled . How long would a White Congressional Caucus last if formed? I am damn tired at this point of Hyphenated Americans as well & race baiters like Jackson & Sharpton that never served their Nation. I served for the majority of my adult life in the US Army that desegregated in 1948. Went to three wars with Soldiers, not Hyphenated Americans and it took 20 Years for the Civilian US to be forced to enact Civil Rights legislation. You tell me why that was necessary before you start throwing the Race Card around because I have heard it all before and don’t buy into that. I amquite simply not intimidated.It appears at this point that divisiveness comes from those that want to blame one President for the failings of many, Democrats & Republicans both that failed America over the years. I just know better than to be fooled by folks bearing hate or an agenda. So feel free to climb on.But have your facts straight first and be civil.Reply
