There was, I believe, a modicum of hope out there that 50 Cent’s new game 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand was going to feature some actual ideals and messages besides the obvious ones about being gangsta and representin. It is taking place in war torn Iraq after all. I had thought maybe, just maybe, 50 had turned over some sort of leaf that made him think an anti-war message might be a good idea. Judging from the above trailer, I was terribly, terribly wrong. In fact that trailer pretty much sums up the exact opposite of tasteful.
50 goes to Iraq, sees Iraqis getting killed and then starts killing more because his pimped out diamond skull has been stolen. Even as an over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek storyline, which I doubt Mr. Cent sees it as, that sounds like the stupidest thing ever. So first 50 promotes violence in the ghetto and now he’s promoting jumping into Iraq and launching rockets into Iraqi cites because someone done stoled his skullz. This from a man who has been shot six times, but don’t walk with a limp. I hope this is all just one big sarcastic joke on the world, because otherwise I’m going to be sick.
