50 Cent shared his hot opinion about the backward social climate of the moment. The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, shared the image of a black man waving a Confederate flag against a white man with a Black Lives Matter sign and suggested that the men were a representation of rappers Lil Wayne and Eminem.
50 Cent described the photo with the caption “Wayne Vs. Eminem,” along with a laughing emoji.

The post comes after Eminem’s official confirmation of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden by Eminem. Eminem, whose birth name is Marshall Mathers, posted a video on Twitter in which he stands up for Biden. The video is a review of the 2002 hit by the 48-year-old rapper “Lose Yourself”, which served as the main single of Eminem’s film 8 Mile.
Eminem made the video available in social media, along with a caption calling on people to vote in the polls on Tuesday, Election Day. “An opportunity… #Vote,” he wrote.

Eminem is one of the many celebrities who support Biden. Beyoncé, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Legend, Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez and many others have also issued messages of support for Biden in the run-up to the election.
Meanwhile, Lil Wayne-born Dwayne Carter caused outrage among fans and members of the black American community when he was photographed on Thursday next to President Donald Trump-Biden’s 2020 opponents. The rapper shared the photo in social media and revealed that he met with Trump to discuss the president’s platinum plan to help black Americans and businesses with a $500 billion investment.
“I just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus, apart from what he has done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan will give the community real ownership,” Lil Wayne tweeted. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured us that he will and can do it.

Thirty-eight-year-old Lil Wayne, who has worked with Eminem on songs like “No Love”, “Forever” and “Drop the World”, has been castigated by people on the Internet for his shocking support of Trump. Rapper Waka Flocka Flame, who also expressed his support for Trump in October, also faced backlashes for his pro-Trump comments.
50 Cent also hit the headlines in October after he claimed he was voting for Trump in response to Biden’s proposed tax plan, which would increase federal income tax for individuals with annual incomes of more than $400,000. According to his ex-girlfriend, comedian Chelsea Handler, 50 Cent’s comments were not to be taken seriously.
“I had to remind him that he’s a black man, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump, and that he shouldn’t influence a whole bunch of people who might listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal wallet,” Handler said when he appeared on the Tonight Show on October 23.
Handler continued her conversation with 50 Cent at a later appearance on The View. “I DM’d him and said, ‘Can you please call me about this?'” explained Handler. “‘I really want to know if you’re serious about supporting Trump.”
“‘He wasn’t serious. He was just fooling around on his Twitter. He’s supporting Joe Biden. He made that very clear to me,” she continued.
50 Cent followed Handler’s claims in a tweet and wrote that he “never liked Trump”.
