Donald Trump has declared bankruptcy three more times than 50 Cent has.
Granted all of The Donald’s Chapter 11s have been on businesses he owns — whereas Fif was forced to declare personal bankruptcy.
50 spoke about Trump and bankruptcy in an interview with The Daily Beast.
“[Trump] knows about it. He’s done it four times!” jokes 50 Cent. “Donald Trump… You know, what’s interesting is the court system doesn’t know the difference between what you can say in entertainment, and what you say under oath, so you have to be really careful with what you say.”
50 Cent went on to say that while he won’t vote for Trump, he admires the 70 year old’s hustle.
“Trump makes me like Hillary more,” he says, before pausing for a moment to reflect on Trump’s rise to POTUS nominee. “Look, I think it’s confirmation that you can buy what you want. I didn’t see him as a potential candidate for president, and it’s amazing that he could make the purchase—buy the spot. The big part of his campaign is that he’s financing it, right? He’s paying his own way. So he’s already going to receive the returns. Now, he’s someone who could potentially run America, so he’s already paid himself. You know how much they’ll pay Trump to do public speaking, whether he becomes the president or not? It’s already worth it!”
As for Fif’s hustle …
“My money? I have a lot of money,” 50 told The Daily Beast.
