( – Rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, argued that former President Donald Trump was someone that Black men could identify with more than they can identify with President Joe Biden.

Jackson had made his argument during a Capitol Hill meeting that was focused on discussing the presence of Black entrepreneurs in the liquor industry while also looking at ways to bridge the wealth gap. In the meeting where lawmakers as well as civil rights attorney Ben Crump. 

Earlier this year Jackson had supported Trump when he had been asked which of the two candidates he would be backing in the upcoming presidential election. Now, he has argued that he has not yet decided on who he will be voting for. However, he did tell Nikole Killion, the CBS News congressional correspondent, that he thinks that Black men were “identifying with Trump.” He specifically noted that in part this was because they also have “RICO charges.”

Last week former President Donald Trump was found guilty by a New York jury on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. He is also dealing with a RICO violation in a separate legal case in Georgia which is connected to his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the state. 

Trump and his allies have often blasted the legal cases against him arguing that they are politically motivated and that his conviction is a “scam.” 

This is not the first time that the rapper has made comments in support of Trump. In March he had argued that he believes that the former President will win back the White House in the upcoming election.
