Rapper 50 Cent Believes Trump Will Run Presidency Again

By Jerry McConway, updated on April 1, 2024

It is not exactly an endorsement of Trump, but this is not something that the Democrat Party wants to hear from the hip-hop community, especially since it usually gushes over Vice President Kamala Harris.

Rapper 50 Cent recently came forward to say that Trump will "be president again," which had to shake the liberal side of the aisle.

Trump Black Vote in 2020

In 2016, Donald Trump made some headway into minority voting groups, winning 28% of the Hispanic community and 27% of the Asian community. However, he still struggled with black voters, only winning 8% of the vote. This was a group of voters that Trump openly courted and worked very hard to make inroads for the 2020 election, and it paid off.

Donald Trump added significant support among the black voting demographic in 2020, moving up to 12% of the vote, which is virtually unprecedented for a Republican presidential candidate. Trump also picked up significant support among other minority groups, winning 32% of the Hispanic vote and 34% of the Asian vote. Had it not been for COVID and the very effective campaign strategy of Democrats to villainize Trump over COVID,  he would have likely had a landslide win against Joe Biden in 2020.

Making Up Ground in Minority Voter Blocks and Comments by 50 Cent

For 2024, the percentages of Biden, as they sit today, make it appear almost impossible for Biden to win this election. Joe Biden now only has a 63% approval rating among black voters, which is a massive dip from the 2020 election. Were it not for Kennedy, who will draw some of that support away from Trump, there would be no way Biden could win by losing that many minority voters. While Kennedy benefits Trump overall, this is the one area where Kennedy's running will hurt Donald Trump.

Trump needs more support from black celebrities to secure this voting block, and he may have just gotten the boost he needed from 50 Cent. He has been very vocally opposed to Joe Biden, regularly posting on social media about rising costs and how inflation is impacting people of color, but now he is turning it up a notch.

50 Cent had reposted an AI video that someone had made of Trump throwing racial slurs around like candy on Easter morning. He was critical of the video and ensured his followers knew it was not the "real" Donald Trump saying those things. Then he also posted:

"I think Trump's gonna be president again, but I'm not gonna say that."

So, like I said, it is not exactly an endorsement, but I am sure Trump will take that because he needs support from high-profile black celebrities. Keep in mind, this is far from the first time that 50 Cent has suggested that things would be better with Trump. For instance, amid rising inflation, he once posted:

"Maybe Trump is the answer."

50 Cent has also been very critical of Joe Biden and Mayor Eric Adams over taxes and the current situation in New York, once posting:

"WHAT THE F—! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT. F— NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don't care Trump doesn't like black people. 62% are you out of ya f—— mind."

Analysis

50 Cent had also been critical of Joe Biden before the 2020 election, but significant pressure was put on him and he eventually buckled. This time, however, seems like it will be different. Trump does have some black celebrities behind him, but nobody with the star power of 50 Cent, so I would suggest to his campaign that they really start to court 50 Cent to get him firmly behind Trump. If they could swing that, it could work to move more of those voters who would be pulling the handle for Kennedy and get them behind Trump in this race.
