New York rap star 50 Cent is keeping tabs on Kanye West and his bid for the presidency. The G-Unit boss went online to share his thoughts on the potential future head of state sharing his thoughts on iconic abolitionist Harriet Tubman and how she ‘didn’t’ free the slaves.

On Sunday, Curtis Jackson hit up his Instagram page with the super cringe footage. In the clip, Yeezy is shown explaining how he believes Tubman didn’t liberate Black people during slavery times and blamed West’s comments on music mogul JAY-Z.
“😆what the f**k did he just say. This is all Jay z fault , kanye’s first Rally. LOL #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi” -50 Cent’s Instagram
“When Harriet Tubman, well Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves. She just had the slaves go work for other white people.” -Kanye West
On Sunday, Kanye put together an epic presidential rally event at Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, South Carolina. In addition to discussing Harriet Tubman, West spoke on his marriage to reality TV star Kim Kardashian and his past struggles with abortion.
During a rambling speech at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, the rapper, 43, was at times happy, angry and sad as he spoke out against abortion and the morning-after pill, saying, “No Plan B. There is Plan A.” West got emotional when he revealed that Kardashian, 39, had called him when they were dating and she was freaking out after a doctor’s appointment and he thought he gave her AIDS cause he was living the rapper lifestyle. Then she told him that she was pregnant and he was relieved but they spoke about Kim taking a pill, to end the pregnancy. (Us Weekly)
Wait, There’s More
Despite generating nationwide interest, Kanye also downplayed his interest in winning the presidency in this November’s election. West made things religious by speaking on what God had planned for him.
Two weeks after announcing his unlikely bid for president, Kanye West held his first campaign event in South Carolina on Sunday. ‘I don’t give a f*** if I win the presidency or not,’ he declared. ‘There are homeless people in front of the Gucci store. … I care about these things. And I am in service of God. … God has a plan for us, as his people, to be finally free.’ (Daily Mail)
