50 Cent Endorses Hillary, Thinks Obama Might Be Killed

50 Cent, Dave Matthews, Perez Hilton, Others Endorse Candidates For Super Tuesday: 50 throws his support behind Hillary Clinton: 'I just think she could do a good job.'
By Garth Bardsley, with additional reporting by Gil Kaufman

While the press has been monitoring politicians as they endorse each other for president in advance of Super Tuesday, MTV News has rounded up a series of last-minute election choices geared especially for the pop culture-oriented.

On "The O'Reilly Factor" Monday night, Bill O'Reilly showed footage of 50 Cent giving his endorsement to Hillary Clinton. "I just think she could do a good job," said the rapper, who added that he has nothing against Barack Obama but thinks America isn't ready for an African-American president. "I think they might kill him," he said.

Late last year, 50 spoke in favor of the former first lady to Rap Up magazine, among other outlets. "I'd like to see Hillary Clinton be president," he said. "It would be nice to see a woman be the actual president and ... this is a way for us to have Bill Clinton be president again, and he did a great job during his term."

Bill Clinton was a good president? For real?

Being scared for Obama's life is silly. Like Michelle Obama said, as a Black man, Obama could be killed at a gas station. A lot of the older Black generation feels this same way. It's just sad how regressive people can be. Or to use a better word, fearful. We shouldn't be so fearful. Imagine the likes of MLK, Malcolm X, Medgar Evers, Harriet Tubman, and countless others not standing up for what they believe in. I'm grateful to them for having the gumption to stand up for what you believe in. Also, props must be given to those who still don't cower to the establishment.

Fear should never serve as a hinderance. That's simply not a way to live.

Curtis' rapid descent into Self-parody gives me the impression that He views this as some sort of marketing technique.

Dont count on Hillary asking him to surrogate for her though.

I hope this isn't a marketing tool because it wouldn't work. No one cares who he'd vote for anyway.

He said a while back that he wished that he was able to vote (he's a felon) because he would've voted for Bush. He also felt that Bush was as effective as he could've been during Katrina. He's had a change of heart cuz last year he said that Bush is "heartless" and "this war's for oil." Negro please.

If that's the case. I REALLY REALLY want Curtis to become President.

@ IGOD777

I can imagine his old friends from Queens lending their support for him too.

Hi Anonymiss,

Well it seems all of the misogynists are backing Hillary, first Bob "Booty Video" Johnson and now 49cent.

I suppose an RKelly endorsement can't be far off.

Hey MDC,

I didn't notice that pattern of misogynists. Good eye. Yes, an R. Kelly endorsement is in order, LOL!
