CNBC reports that rapper 50 Cent said under oath that a 65-karat ring he posted on Instagram was leased. He further swore that his fancy cars and jewelry are leased, not owned.
Here are 3 Real 50 Cent lyrics we doubt he gave under oath…
1. “It feels good to blow 50 grand and think nothing of it…”
This lyric from “If I Can’t” adds “If I can’t do it, it can’t be done.” And perhaps it shouldn’t be done, if you don’t want to wind up in bankruptcy court.
2. “My flow, my show brought me the dough, That bought me all my fancy things, My crib, my cars, my clothes, my jewels…”
This lyric from “In Da Club” seemed odd for a first hit single from a previously-unknown rapper. Now we suspect that the cribs being referred to belonged to an entrepreneurial baby in the baby crib-leasing business.
3. “I love you like a fat kid love cake.”
This lyrics from “21 Questions” raises a 22nd question! “Are you talking about paid-for cake, or rented cake? Because this song is asking a lot of questions about loving someone even if they were poor and not rich, implying you may secretly not be rich.”
