(Headline USA) Rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, blasted President Joe Biden this week for going on vacation again as the war between Israel and Hamas continues to unfold.
“Hey Joe, get the f*** up, we in trouble man!” 50 Cent posted on Instagram, citing a report that Biden returned to his Delaware beach house this week.

In a follow-up post, 50 Cent wrote: “We got some real s*** going on out here Joe. What’s the plan to get a tan and chill come on now.”
Biden was seen strolling with his wife, Jill Biden, on the beach on Sunday and refused to take any questions from the press, including one about whether he had “heard anything about American hostages” taken by Hamas into Gaza.

When asked why Biden left the White House for Delaware as turmoil in the Middle East continues to unfold, White House deputy spokesperson Andrew Bates insisted the president can do his job anywhere.
“As has been the case for the better part of a century, presidents can execute the full range of their duties from anywhere in the world – whether it’s a war zone in Israel or 100 miles from the White House in Delaware,” Bates said.
Bates went on to claim that Biden “works long hours every day” and that he spoke with several world leaders over the weekend about his “support for Israel’s right to defend itself and push for aid to innocent Palestinians,” including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
Biden has spent about 40% of his presidency on vacation, often in Delaware. He has insisted that his frequent visits to the massive beach home aren’t for “vacation.”
50 Cent is one of several high-profile African–American members of the hip-hop community who has come out strongly criticizing Biden or speaking in support of former President Donald Trump.
Most recently, Trump received an endorsement earlier this month from rapper Waka Flocka Flame in the 2024 presidential election.

During the 2020 election, 50 Cent tweeted in support of Trump.

However, he was later shamed into retracting it by white comedian Chelsea Handler, who boasted on the Tonight Show that she had taken it upon herself to “remind him that he was a black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump.”
50 Cent also came out strongly critical of Los Angeles’s soft-on-crime policies, warning that the city would be “finished” if it enacted controversial bail reform.
Unfortnuately, his longtime friend and collaborator Eminem, who is white, has been an outspoken Trump critic and virtue-signaler of left-wing causes.
