50 Cent Enlists the Homeless in His Battle With the Legal System

Rapper posts photos from the streets as he bemoans how he’s being treated during bankruptcy proceedings

50 Cent is fuming at the legal system, and he’s dragging the homeless into his battle with the courts.

The rapper (real name: Curtis Jackson), who is currently mired in bankruptcy proceedings, has fired off a number of Instagram posts railing against the legal system — and, for some reason, including photos of homeless people.

“The system is so messed up, the law applies differently to people based on the personal perception of them. It’s amazing how bad it is it’s sad,” Jackson wrote in one post, accompanied by a picture of feet half-wrapped in raggedy fabric and the hashtag “#thisimageiscourtapporved.”

In another post, this time illustrated with a photo of a man sitting on a sidewalk and clutching a sign that reads, “Help,” the rapper railed, “I have millions of dollar [sic] in my company’s [sic], the court knows this. I was accused of committing fraud with nothing but a IG photo. I can careless [sic] what these people think of me but it’s not right. Now someone from secret service is asking if prop money was counter fitted [sic]. How the fuck would I know that shit head? Smh.”

On Thursday, Jackson was in court, after being ordered to appear so that he could explain why he had posted numerous pictures of himself with tall stacks of cash on his Instagram account, despite his current bankruptcy proceedings.

In one such photo, the rapper used the stacks of cash to spell out the word “Broke.”

The rapper claims that the money he posed with in the photos was prop money.

In his series of posts condemning the court system, the rapper didn’t shy away from playing the race card and tossing an N-bomb into the mix.

“The court system still has a old view point, I look in the mirror and see a entrepreneur, a winner,” he wrote. “I almost forgot Some people look and see a nigger that should not have all that money in the first place. Some old habits don’t change fast.”
