Rapper and businessman 50 Cent appeared to endorse President Donald Trump in a Monday Instagram post, saying it's because of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's tax plan.
The rapper—born Curtis Jackson III in Queens—condemned Biden's tax plan, which would raise tax rates on corporations and individuals who make more than $400,000 per year.
“I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people,” Jackson continued, “62% are you out of ya [expletive] mind.” He also posted the same picture and caption on Twitter.
The rapper, who lives in New York City, could be hit with a 62 percent tax rate increase under the former vice president's plan, some experts have said. New Jersey and California residents who make $400,000 per year could have a more than 60 percent tax rate, while New York state residents could face a 58 percent rate.
It’s unclear from the post if Jackson will himself vote for the president.
According to Forbes magazine, Jackson's net worth was approximately $110 million as of February 2020.
Jackson's posts on Monday night comes at odds with what he has previously stated about Trump, whose presidency he called an "accident." He said in a Hot 97 interview in 2017: "I don't think anything has divided people as fast as [Trump]."
Meanwhile, Biden came under fire from Trump and Vice President Mike Pence after he repeatedly said he would repeal the president's middle-class tax cuts.
Jackson's comment comes after "Cheers" actress Kirstie Alley went on Twitter to declare her support for President Trump's reelection.
