Our Two Cents on 50
Play episode · 46 min

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.

 Unlike Fiddy, who hails from the exotic isle of...South Jamaica... Queens.[/caption]

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…

MK271: The White People's Apology Tour (Indigenous Cultural Burns, Megan The Stallion, Misogynoir & HipHop, Regina King Slay, Coming 2 America, Amy Comey Barrett, Gretchen Whitmer's Sign Language Lady, Furiosa)
_ _Today is like therapy cause sometimes in the middle of a pandemic with so much happening- you’re just not okay. With returning guest co-host Samantha Nzessi, we talk “why are we trying to confirm Amy Comey Beheret and her questionable originalist self when folks still waiting for more stimulus checks?" Beware of the Republicans latest tactic to steal the election. We'll let you know why everyone needs a hype sign language person like Governor Gretchen Whitmer- don't fuck with her! On the pop culture front, Regina King’s latest project is about to _Slay_, and _Coming 2 America_ might be coming to you on Amazon, and why that's a bummer, and why the new Furiosa casting has us furious with ageism in Hollywood. In the main Korner's we are celebrating Indigenous People’s day highlighting the cultural traditions that First Nation’s people were doing that had been banned for centuries, that could have helped the fires in California, had Westerners leave them be, plus 5 things you can do to celebrate and support Indigenous folks! Samantha breaks down the case of Megan The Stallion’s treatment after she was shot by ex boyfriend Tory Lenz and how this is an example of Misogynoir, it's historical footprint in hip hop, and 5 ways you can stop it. Plus- our proposal for reparations which may include a white butler for all. Guest Co Host Samantha Nzessi- IG & Twitter: _@samanthal_n_ _Samantha (she/her) is about equity of all kinds. Racial, gender, class, you name it. She is co-host and producer of MASKulinity podcast, which is dedicated to unlearning patriarchy from the masculine side of the spectrum. Like Issa Rae, she’s rooting for everybody Black. Unless you’re a misogynist! Then she’s rooting for you to be held accountable for your fuckery._ _LINKS:_ Ugh , Amy Comey Barrett * * Regina King: Slay: Coming 2 America: Republicans have been trying to steal ballots: Anya Taylor Joy as a young Fruiosa : Indigenous People’s Celebration * * * * * Megan Thee Stallion + misogynoir in hip hop * * * * * * CONTACT US Twitter: @minoritykorner Email: IG: @minoritykorner James Arthur M: TW: @JamesArthur_M, IG: @JamesArthurM
