50 Cent: I’m a target because I make money



Rapper 50 Cent insists he is being made a ‘target’ by the system because he made his own money. The ‘In Da Club’ hit maker slammed the ‘system’ after he was called to court to explain photos posted online, which appeared to show him with a lot of money, despite filing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last year, reports

Writing on his Instagram page, he shared: “The system is so messed up, the law applies differently to people based on the personal perception of them. It’s amazing how bad it is it’s sad… When you make money you become a target. Not only by people who feel there competitors, but by system itself. The lawyers take someone’s case to go after your hard earned money pro bono.”

The 40-year-old rapper, real name Curtis James Jackson III, previously told a court the money in his social media photographs is fake and just a promotional prop for his range with EFFEN Vodka.

 ” As a hip-hop artist and entertainer, it is imperative that I continue to project aspirational goals of success in order to preserve my brand and those I represent. What I say and what I do on social media has a direct impact on my music sales and the viewership on my television shows,” he said.
