Paper In 50 Cent's New 'Hood Wants P.I.M.P. On Town Council

Editorial imagines packed meetings, youth involvement.

by Shaheem Reid




50 Cent (file) (John Shearer)


50 Cent was probably joking when he recently told reporters he was thinking of running for town council in his new hometown of Farmington, Connecticut. A local newspaper, however, says the G-Unit's biggest G should consider getting serious.

Staff writer Bill Larkin wrote an editorial in Thursday's The Herald of New Britain urging last year's top-selling musical artist to get involved in local politics. Larkin said a 50 run for office would galvanize the community and inspire young people to pay closer attention to politics that affect them directly.

"Do you really think public participation would be a problem if Curtis Jackson was the first speaker on the agenda?" he asked.

Larkin suggested that the rapper's term in office would add much-needed diversity to a council consisting solely of older Caucasian men.

His plea may fall on deaf ears, of course. We'll probably see Arnold Schwarzenegger run for president before 50 gets sidetracked from his lucrative touring and recording career, which includes an LP due later this year.

50 Cent also oversees releases on G-Unit Records. Label newcomer Game hopes to release his debut this year, Interscope Records has tentatively slated a Lloyd Banks solo album for May, and Young Buck's LP is also scheduled to drop sometime in 2004.

This report is from MTV News.


Is it possible??

HAHAHHAHAHHAHA

i love it! he'd get popped!

but youre right, he wouldnt follow suit.
people just dont follow through, when he's got that much money, who would want to go spend it on something like saving a country????? im sure things would work out much better if they just used it to buy a good bottle of wine and an expesive hair cut

It's been a joke since bush stole the election. Bush is nothing but an international gansta anyway.

Since Bush stole the election? What about Clintons lil affair with white trash Monica? I think politics is a joke in general.

I dont know. I would probably vote for him. I understand he's taken a unique stance on 'playa hatin'. Hopefully he will be the one to finally pass the "bitches aint # act".
hahahahaha

He may be good at rapping or w/e (in some peoples opinions) but he would suck ass as a political candidate.

How do you know? He might have a unique and innovative stance on the issues. Don't judge a book by it's cover like my momma used to say.

So are you telling the world that in your mind these two men are very similar? Nah, you sure man? Really?

There are similarities true but I have more faith in Jesse Ventura to at least be competent in the job. On the other hand 50 cent may be motivated sufficiently to do take this on, but for what ends?
