SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Rapper 50 Cent on Monday endorsed Donald Trump for president.

In a social media post, Fif posted a screenshot of a recent financial report on Joe Biden’s alleged tax plan for some states.

“WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” Fif wrote. “F*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f****** mind.”

The rapper, who lives in New York City, could be hit with a 62% tax rate increase under Biden’s plan, experts said.

Fif’s announcement was met with both praise and criticism. Conservative Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren commented on his post, “Welcome to the Trump Train! Amen!!!!”

Shortly after his post, 50 Cent posted again with the caption, “I just remembered i’m bankrupt, so i’m looking for a gracious loan can anyone help a brother out. LOL.”

Fif’s endorsement comes just days after fellow rapper Ice Cube sparked backlash over his collaboration with Trump on his “Platinum Plan,” which includes initiatives such as “neighborhoods with highest policing standards” and replacing “failing schools.”

In an interview with CNN, Cube said he was contacted by both Trump and Biden’s campaigns.

“Both campaigns wanted to talk to me about the Contract with Black America. One campaign said, ‘We love what you have, but let’s really dig into after the election.’ And one campaign said ‘We love what you have, do you mind talking to us about it?’ And that’s what I did, so I didn’t run to nobody.”

Cube is willing to work with both teams, he said, and with whomever will work with him.
