This week, Tre’vell and Jarrett are talking about hip hop mogul Curtis Jackson, better-known as 50 Cent. 

The rapper turned actor, producer and sometimes internet troll has been in the news cycle recently due to a string of comments he made while visiting Lil Wayne's radio show where he labeled Black women as bitter and angry while ridiculing them for failing to be exotic.

We'll discuss the misogynoir, toxic masculinity and just straight-up immaturity behind some of the rapper's worst public moments and discuss what it is about 50 Cent that made audiences love him in the first place!

But first…
