"I want to be more. Not just as an artist but as a person"

50Cent goes to Africa to help the needy. says that due to his lyrics, the UN didn't even want to take his money, but after getting to know the rapper, he turns out to be a good guy after all - a guy who doesn't drink or smoke - or get into any trouble.

its people like you kasi for life that will always pull africa down. when a black person tries to do some good you come up with all sorts of nasty stories about them, what illuminati?? if you could read and believe in that why cant you believe in such positive stories too??? had it been a white person MADONA doing this you would be all smiles . let us stop negative attitudes and suport such people, unless you have a better way to help those poor people 50 is trying to reach out to then just shut up baba, clearly you do not know or have experirnced poverty. you are such a negative person yerrrrr haysuka maan.the guy doesint smoke doesint drink which is exactly the kind of role models african kids need as these substances are destroying our continent

@Kasi-For-Life, I just read an article written by Shyaka Kanuma calls "African mentalities account for Africa's backwardness". In this article the author spoke about African leaders are always blaming other things for African problems but never themselves for anything. The world bank didn't create the problem in Africa the problems in Africa were created by the poor African leaders.

Ow ya he will have more effect in Africa, if he went back to the world bankers and told them to stop the poverty which they created in Africa and he would have a bigger effect on the human race if he educated the people about the illuminatti and how they control everyday life and that theres enough in the world to go around, dude all im saying is use your music to educate the human race of the evil people who want to enslave all human souls
