He's furrowed up his brow, and tried to think things through, but 50 Cent can't seem to get beyond "my enemy's enemy" when it comes to Kanye West, and so makes a bit of a twunk of himself:

50 says he disagrees with West's infamous statement that "George Bush doesn't care about black people," proclaimed during a September telethon for Hurricane Katrina victims. "I think people responded to it the best way they can," 50 told "What Kanye West was saying, I don't know where that came from."

Instead, 50 said, "The New Orleans disaster was meant to happen. It was an act of God."

Well, let's just suppose for a moment it was an act of God, and not a disaster which was made worse because of the unnaturally heated Atlantic and the lack of funding and manpwoer for the levee programme - Bush seems as reluctant to take the rap for that as God does - but that's not the point. Kanye isn't blaming Bush for the hurricane hitting the place, it was the pathetic response that was supposed to be coordinated by Bush's mate Brown that he was criticising. Perhaps you'd better stick to drawing guns on your notepad and choosing which singlet will best show off your biceps, and leave the more serious debates to others.

Do you really believe that that was the best response that could be managed by the richest nation on the planet, 50 Cent? In which case, you're less half dollar; more half wit.
