50 Cent has been making his presence known in the hip-hop world again, via his new “Street King” movement, which consists of a series of tracks he’s leaked over the past several weeks, as well as an energy shot drink with proceeds helping to feed African children … the goal being one billion.
Taking a page outta his former G-Unit artist Prodigy’s book, the hip-hop mogul is speaking out against the greedy elite, whom he says — in a recent PSA, posted at ThisIs50.com — has programmed us not to care about the neediest and poorest people in the world. And, he’s not having it.
In a written PSA, posted on Saturday (October 22), 50 sounds off, asking people to open their eyes and see how corrupt the powers leading the world are.
Read his rant below, in its entirety (no edits):
The world is so f***** up
People don’t seem to care anymore
People seem to have distanced themselves from other people’s problems, they have been programmed not to care!
Politicians are corrupt…So many companies are corrupt and taking excessive profits in certain sectors…….and we keep allowing this s*** to happen
There are 1 billion plus people living in extreme poverty. You know what that is? You don’t know if your getting your next meal, no shelter, no medical. You have no chance of hustling your way out of it!
We have been programmed to not give a s*** about these people!
Well I have woken up and Im not turning a blind eye anymore!
Im not playing the game anymore. Our Company CEO’s and politicians want us to keep our heads down and not ask questions. Not demand the truth
they don’t want us to care, they have trained us to turn a blind eye!
Because they control us and profit from us this way!
to push back at them questions and threatens their lifestyles.
Children are dying everyday from hunger. Its f***** up, its wrong and I am angry
Im not going to shut up or give up – f*** the system, its wrong.

Innocent children are dying each day…. we need to shout out to companies, politicians that we aren’t playing their games anymore
We are waking up to their lies and deceitful dealings
