Fox News covered the story and added these details:
It appears 50 Cent knows who he’s voting for.
The 45-year-old hip-hop mogul — born Curtis James Jackson III — took to Instagram on Monday to offer his support for President Trump after seeing figures related to former Vice President Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan.
The star shared an image from what appeared to be a news broadcast, displaying the “top tax rates by state under [the] Biden tax plan.”
Among the states mentioned was New York, which the broadcast said would be taxed at a rate of 58% while New York City would be taxed at 62%.
“WHAT THE F–K! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” wrote Jackson in the caption. “F–K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f–king mind.”

The Daily Mail chipped in too:
Rapper 50 Cent has endorsed Donald Trump for president because of his favorable tax policies for the rich – and said he doesn’t care if the Republican ‘doesn’t like black people’.
The 45-year-old tweeted a shot of the tax rates proposed by Democratic candidate Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris.
The Biden proposals could see those earning more than $400,000 a year hit with rates of 62.6 percent for those who live in California residents, and 62 percent for people who live in New York City.
Imagine making $1 million & getting $620k taken away due to taxes. That’s insane & literal robbery
