50 Cent Talks Trump, COVID and Roger Stone in Exclusive Interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber

50 Cent spoke to MSNBC’s Ari Melber in an exclusive interview that will air tonight on “The Beat with Ari Melber” at 6pm ET. 

On President Trump potentially pardoning Roger Stone: 

“I think he should — if that’s his people, he should look out for ’em.”

50 Cent defended his reputation for public feuds, stating that the public often sees his response but not the initial provocation: 

“They don’t see the slap. They don’t see the insult, they just see my response. They didn’t see the shots get fired.”

Melber asked 50 Cent about the contrast between his clean lifestyle and his music’s emphasis on drinking and drugs, the rapper explained:

“During all of those [old] songs, during that period? There was zero drinking. I didn’t do it at all… my upbringing adjusted me that way, because I had a household full of people that was drunk a lot… I had an uncle growing up that had a ‘tough guy’ in him that didn’t come out until he had a drink, and he went to fight.”

The interview is 50 Cent’s second appearance on “The Beat with Ari Melber” on MSNBC. The two also spoke in 2017, after Melber quoted the rapper on air while reporting on the Mueller Probe, and 50 Cent posted an Instagram video responding to Melber.
