The infamous rapper, as well as being loved for his music, is also known for his crude, and sometimes offensive comments.
And this week, he has yet again ruffled feathers…
After making a rather strange remark about the actress, Halle Berry.
The star grew up on the streets of New York and infamously survived being shot at 9 times.
The star was raised by his grandmother after his mom, Sabrina Jackson, died when he was just 8-years-old.
Sabrina, having given birth to Jackson aged fifteen, turned to dealing drugs to support herself – becoming one of the most feared drug dealers in Queens – before being killed in what many speculate was some kind of drug war.
After dropping out of high school, the star spent a lot of his time in and out of jail.
And critics have long hailed him as the “real deal.”
He was a big player in the underground mixtape scene for several years, but the mainstream music world didn’t hear about him until 2002 – when his debut single, “Wanksta,” appeared on the soundtrack of 8 Mile.
The following year, the rapper dropped his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’, which topped the charts and broke sales record – catapulting him into a life of celebrity stardom.
And with it came all the luxuries of fully-fledged Hollywood life.
That in October 2003, the star purchased the house of ex-boxing champion Mike Tyson for a whopping $4.1 million.
The star purchased a plethora of SUVs, all of which were bulletproof. “No matter how successful you are, you’ve … gotta take precautions,” he said at the time.
And even requires his son to wear one too.
And, most of the time, we love him for it – though he hasn’t been without his controversies.
Like when he said that he wouldn’t mind if his own son, Marquise Jackson, got hit by a bus after he posed for a picture with 50’s rival, Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff. Yikes.
But 50 has been in some really hot water in the past.
In 2015, 50 Cent lost a lawsuit that ordered him to pay $6m to a woman whose sex tape he posted online without permission.
In 2010, the rapper suggested that his “homie” shot up a gay wedding after he had a falling out with gay blogger, Perez Hilton.
That same year, PinkNews reported that he had suggested that men who do not sleep with women should “just kill” themselves.
So, as you can see, Fiddy doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to women or anybody from the LGBTQ+ community…
And now, he has landed himself in hot water again for a derogatory comment he made about the actress, Halle Berry.
The actor recently revealed that she was interested in playing a transgender man.
And she hastily apologized, stating in her apology that she merely wants to become an “ally” both on and off-camera.
And, as you can imagine, he’s only added fuel to the flames.
And, to clear up his confusion, he took to Instagram to question whether finding her attractive now made him gay.
You can’t make this stuff up, can you?
“You wanted to do what? Why? Oh my God. So if I still think you’re beautiful. I’m gay a** a MF.”
People instantly slammed the rapper for his comment, though many believe he wasn’t meaning to be offensive… They think it could merely have been said out of stupidity.
Yeah, I’m not sure I can agree with this…
