Rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has publicly voiced his support for the reelection of President Trump. In a profanity-laced post, Jackson said that while he does not think Trump likes black people, it was nothing short of economic suicide to support Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The actor, producer, and rapper faced criticism for his endorsement, but suggested that those who objected to it should evaluate the two candidates' tax policies. Taking aim at Joe Biden's proposed tax rates, 50 Cent quipped, "I don't want to be 20 Cent."

According to the announced Biden-Harris tax plan, those making more than $400,000 a year could see their tax rate leap to the point where Uncle Sam would confiscate 62% of their earnings every year.

Besides Jackson, even pro-Bernie Sanders rapper and performer Cardi B, has recently spoken out against heavy-handed taxation.
