During his bankruptcy case yesterday, 50cent said the social media postings are prop money, not real Benjamins. And that he’s just trying to keep up appearances. His words: “As a hip-hop artist and entertainer, it is imperative that I continue to project aspirational goals of success in order to preserve my brand and those I represent.
My social media posts are a vehicle to perpetuate the demand for my music and entertainment services. Just because I am sensitive to the needs of maintaining my brand does not mean that I am hiding assets or that I have lied on my filings in the bankruptcy case, neither of which is true.
