Hip-Hop News Round Up: 50 Cent Goes After Oprah

By April 29, 2006

Follow me on:

The notorious 50 Cent is at it again. This time, 50's target is the billion dollar lady, Oprah Winfrey. In a recent interview with the Associated Press, 50 declared his resentment for Oprah, "I could care less about Oprah and her show." Why? "I think she caters to older white women." Wow! I wonder whose album Mr. Cent is trying to promote by denigrating Oprah Winfrey...oh wait, Mobb Deep's Blood Money is just right around the corner. (Source:Crunk & Disorderly)

Have you ever wondered why some women are no big fans of hip-hop? Well, according to the lovely XXL online columnist, Tara Henley, it boils down to five reasons, one of them being that "females get tired of being trash-talked." 50 Cent take note.(Source:Northern Touch)

We've all heard about people getting shot at the now infamous New York radio station, Hot 97. Well, for those of us who've been living under a cave for the past few days, a fledgling NY rapper named Gravy was allegedly shot by a member of his 30-man entourage on his way to the radio station. Gravy took the bullet, acted as if nothing happened and still went upstairs to sit in for his interview, until someone noticed blood dripping from his behind. You may recall that a member of The Game's entourage was also shot in the lobby of Hot 97 during a 2005 altercation between The Game and 50 Cent. (Source:SOHH Media Chin-Check)

50 is a whining baby, Oprah has shows about topics that interest her and why not it’s HER show. Does he think that rappin about having x in a club, or being the PIMP is excelling or aiding the black community. He’s feeding into the negative stereo types to pad his pockets. Oprah’s show went from being a typical talk show to an informative medium for all people. Oprah has paid her dues to our community and she has charities that aid Blacks as well as others. Just because she can’t brag about being shot 9 times and being a snitch doesn’t mean anything. Maybe she doesn’t like rap and that’s why they’re not on her show. I wouldn’t have 50 anywhere near any kind of show because he talk too damn much about nothing. Yeah, Oprah has a lot of whites on her show. Don’t hate, because 50 has a lot of whites buying his CD’s, just because we can’t visably see them doesn’t make it any different, he spending that money just the same and ain’t none coming to my neck of the woods. I say pick on someone who’s gonna pick back but then again…you’ll just get a restraining order P*$$Y!!!!!!!

Personally neither one of them has done anything for the Black community in the US that I can recall. Going to Africa…Madonna and Angelina Jolie has done that and they are not even black.

Not one of them has stepped in my neck of the woods doing anything for the black communities I have stayed in. They have so much money, why don’t they start funding or being the face of mentoring program. I am not asking them to save the world or minorities but keep it real and do not forget where you came from. That’s all!!

And if I am wrong tell me what specifically they have done. Give me a name or organization.

Oprah doesn’t just hate rappers, she hates all REAL black men. She is a closet FRISCO DYKE, hiding behind that effiminate Stedman. She might be happier if she came on out.

I comletely understand 50 cent rapper, he was extremely uspet with Oraph Winfrey. In fact, 50 cent rapper can not control or stop from Oraph’s show. Oprah Winfrey and the rappers have different hearts in the nation. Oraph Winfrey, she loves all the humankind than profane, act of voilent, immature personality. I think Oraph prefers educated people. Oraph welcomes all the color of skins with educated people. That is her life. Maybe Oraph feel uncomfortable either hears or see the rappers have lot of troublemaking, to threaten the black community.

(10) hip hop is dead says:

Lets see 50 says Oprah cater to older white women. That could be a way she makes her money or whatever, but she is not destroying the young black with her television shows right? But young black people love 50 cent you see he caters to the young poor black communities while making his money off them and then filling their mind with some uneducated bullish.

(11) Menthoids says:

I think young black men are magnificent, so to read “I could care less about Oprah and her show.” Why? “I think she caters to older white women.” is a total piss off.
I am an Ausssie, 49 years old, white as freaking snow, woman. How ’bout being ‘nice’, dickhead.

50cent will be renamed 2cent when Oprah and the rest of decent black America is done with him. Stop degrading yourselves. Temptations, Smokey, Ray, Tina, Aretha, there is your black gold.

(13) BeautifulBlackWoman says:

Oprah doesn’t owe anyone anything. Oprah is a productive member of society. If we had more Oprah’s in the world and less 50 Cents runnnig around, we can make a change in your “hood”. Oprah is one person and will not be able to touch every single community. How can Black women expect others outside our race to respect us when the majority of our Black men do not respect us.

(14) A Clue says:

50 cent makes his money selling out black women to young white boys with overactive imaginations, who is he to say anything about Oprah Winfrey.

F*ck you 50. I aint never buyin none of you junk talkin, fantasy livin life bullsh*t CD’s! You know longer exist, puff vamous, beatch!

(16) Damn Them Both says:

I feel 50, but i don’t like Oprah because I have watched her and researched and read about her. She came from the same place that alot of our “hood” people came from. Now, someone said she has done more for us than 50, what exactly would that be? Why didn’t she promote ‘The Covenant With Black America’? That was the most positive anything to come out for black people (by black people) all over the world and I do not remember hearing her even mention it. But, let a woman say she has been beat or abused by her husband and she’s all over that. Don’t get this twisted, I can’t stand 50 cent either, but on this subject I happen to agree with him. She did build the school in Africa but I feel she could have done that here in america. I believe that institution may prove to hurt them more in the long run because of the seperation of families it could cause. What are these girls going to do once they are educated beyond the scope of African culture? Most likely they will leave their country and families behind to find better lives. Now, they all may not do that, but i believe the majority will.

oprah has her own show,money so she can do what she pleases. The live 5 cent (this not an error ) live and sing about will only last for a little while because God do will get you.

Oprah is jealous because 3-6 mafia won an academy award and she didn’t for color purple. She is nothing but a jealous ignorant crack head.
