STAVANGER, Norway -- Rapper 50 Cent will invite survivors of Norway's July 22 attacks to a private aftershow party after being shocked by the shooting rampage, Rogalands Avis newspaper reported Wednesday.

50 Cent -- real name Curtis James Jackson III -- told organizers of the RxR Festival in the southern Norwegian city of Stavanger that he wanted to do something to honor victims of the Utoya Island killings after following events on TV closely.

The American rapper agreed to perform at a special aftershow party following his headline set at the festival Thursday.






In a time of deep mistrust, disunity, and hatred world-wide, I applaud the gesture by rap star 50 cent to the traumatized victims of the recent Norwegian terrorist attack.

Our world—if it is to survive—people world-wide must reach out to each other with gestures like this of empathy and compassion. . . even small gestures like this count.

Love and humanhood must overcome hatred and division for the human family to exist in peace.

Kudos to 50 cent for thinking of others!

Probably a publicity stunt to gain "respect" in the media and ultimately make money off of these victims.

And honestly, if I would have survived the horrors of that day, last thing I would want for few year would be to go to a crappy rap performance.

This just proves 50 Cent isn't Illuminati and an A-Hole because if he was either one or both, he wouldn't be doing something like this.

50 Cent has a heart and a soul with positive energy, even though his songs talk about shooting and crap. He's a nice person who shares with his community.

Now Kanye on the other hand, I've never heard of him doing something anywhere CLOSE to this.

AMEN FITTY

Wow, um Google some 50 cent lyrics. Not what a victim of a shooting should be listening to in my opinion. I actually sort of like 50 cent for some weird reason but I wouldn't want to listen to his stuff after being shot at

Also, Yo dog we heard you like etc...

Dude, 50 cent has a PR agent.

This doesn't prove anything, and he's still a phoney.

It's not gonna be a crappy performance...You just don't have an open mind to his music. He's very lyrical and gifted. Many know this, but you're just one of those haters...

It may be that cynicism like yours, FROZENSPARK, is one of the issues that feeds the problems of our world.

Ummm, would you rather talk trash about him or actually share proof that he's a phoney?

Stop Hating. 50 never did anything to you.

Nope..

just 50 Cent. (well, definitely a few others as well)

WU-Tang will tell you all about why he sucks and how he exploited an art form for profit. (Listen to "Who the # is 50 Cent")

Well 50 cent made a lot of money through his music and it seems like MILLIONS of people around the world like him so you're stuck in the minority here. 50 has accomplished things that you wish you could with your life. He drives a few Lambos and has STACKS of cash. Who wouldn't want that?

So just because another artist disses him means you hate 50 Cent, huh....

That's low-class.


EDIT: Afroman disses 50 in his track called Whack Rappers but it doesn't mean I should go hate on him...I see that you're just a bandwagon jumper....sorry.

I dont agree with that statement, He has supported many charities and organizations.... G-Unity Foundation
LIFEbeat
New York Restoration Project
Orca Network
Shriners Hospitals for Children and many other good causes that are supported by good people.

Skate, if 50 was legit about helping people he would tour middle east (for aid, not music) like Immortal Tech did (or something similar) and not brag about it all over the news.

See, 50 has done MANY things to support charities and organizations....Has Immortal Technique done it? Nope because he hates America and everything in it and how it all works. At least thats what he raps about. He's almost like a lyrical anti-government militia rapper terrorist.

Well when he performs shows, he generates massive income, which then gets donated because he already has enough money. But you're blind so you wouldn't see that...

So he would help out with aid? I know he participated in farm-aid off the top of my head,if that counts.

Just for what it is worth.
