LINK: 50 Cent On MTV’s Censorship

In a new interview with MTV, 50 Cent vents his frustration about the network’s unfair cencorship policies. Namely, he’s upset about the fact that Britney Spears can begin her single by saying “It’s Britney, Bitch,” while a rapper like 50 is not allowed to say the B-word. He said:

“I guess they have their rules that apply individually to each artist separately: ‘Oh no, he can’t say that, ’cause he feels like that about that person,’ ” he said. “But it’s not a rule that applies to everybody else. Matter of fact, my next single, I’m going to start it [with], ‘It’s Britney, bitch!’”

MTV also made 50 change the name of his new single from “I’ll Still Kill” to “I Still Will,” which he also felt was a double standard:

“It’s [renamed] ‘I Still Will’ for MTV,” he added. “It’s amazing because right after that , they’ll have a group on TV called the Killers. There’s always more pressure on hip-hop music. It’s the stepchild of entertainment. … In fact, my new project with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Donnie Wahlberg will be out April 12th called ‘Righteous Kill.’ Nobody has a problem with that, but ‘I’ll Still Kill’ is the wrong title for a song. It’s easier to fight one CD, one artist at a time — that’s really what they’re doing.”

  • ATL = All Trannies Live

    Boycott MTV:

    They’ve definitely got a double standard. Remember when they wouldn’t show P Diddy’s commercial b/c it was too “sexy”. Then they turn around and put Tila Tequila on.

  • Danny

    The man is a fake… but he has a point

  • GORILLA UNIT CUZZ

    Great point 50. Its a double standard with hip hop to any other type of music all the time.

  • HS

    50 does have a point…i agree with him…Mtv hella does have this double standard on hip hop and most of these rock or alternative bands come out with songs that a pretty scary…but hey, its mtv. doesnt really surprise me

    ICE CUBE SAID IT BEFORE”MTV THEY USE YOU AND THEY DONT CARE,THEY’LL HAVE A NEW NIGGA NEXT YEAR”SORRY YOU GIVE TO THE POP CULTURE THEY WILL TURN ON YOU AND TRY TO CONTROL YOUR IMAGE.

  • Colron

    Probably the most importasnt topic in any article on this or allhiphop in the last month. This is not only a double standard..its BLATANT.

  • kem

    i hear fif but don’t open with dat shit just make a diss song bout mtv y not rite b.e.t. coming up

  • Ali

    he gotta good point….2 bad his CD sucked

  • BirdsFlySouth

    Kanye beat fif again. Kanye been boycotting MTV for months

  • AZ40

    I usually don’t agree w/ fif on anything but he’s right, MTV doesn’t really support the artist they just want to make their quick buck. I don’t even watch MTV anymore, or BET(Most of their shows suck). But why is he doing Cribs?

  • keke

    Yeah, i will agree with 50 on this. There is a double standard against hip hop and really there always has been. Just like when Bill O’Reilly went on that crusade to get Ludacris out of that pepsi deal but had nothing to say about the Osbourne’s who were on MTV every week cursing each other out. There was a time when Rock and Alternative got picked on too, I don’t think we should forget that. Its just now hip hop is the most popular form of music. And I agree with the first comment on this post. MTV banned Diddy but let that slut Tila have a show. I don’t care for Diddy but the commercial was hot and sexy to me….MTV is whack!

  • SOUTHERNBREED

    This Is Gonna sound funny but,50 and Ja Rule are actually on the same page!
    50 And Ja both don’t agree with MTV.
    Ja Was Talking About How They think it’s right to have a show with a gay dude,a lesbian or a bisexual on at after school hours.
    50 is right and MTV is really trippin.
    Even Justin Timberlake said play more videos!
    MTV isn’t about music anymore, they got more tv shows then videos!
    They Are Racist Too,I Don’t Care If Sway Is There Or Not!

  • weezy baby

    50 cent is right on that one.

  • danny is a fake

    yo danny, if u say 50 is a fake u r tha fakest muther fucker out there, u got it twisted homie

  • REAL TALK

    MTV is not more the “Music Television”. Change the name to RTV “Reality Television”

  • REAL TALK

    MTV is not more the “Music Television”, change the name to RTV “Reality Television”

  • j

  • Young T y b

    50′s The Man MTV You Jus A Fan Let The Man Do His Thing Like He’s Been Doin For Yers Makin Hit Records Leet Em ” Its Britney Bitch LOL “

  • P

    everybody likes pullin tha race card, anytime some shit happens some dumb mutha fucka refers to race….whites this blacks that…to be totally honest calling yourself a bitch compared to sayin “nigga i’ll still kill” hmmmmmm which one you gonna pick to censor? Be a realist not a fuckin moron

    • nellz

      they were talkin about the word “bitch”…u won’t ever hear “its dipset bitch” on MTV

    • missile 6

      This is not really a black white issue. Its just about what fair and whats not. Its not just MTV, its BET too, they are the same company, same owners. If you haven’t noticed they are not music channels for the most part anymore, just reality “channels”.

      The funny thing is Senator John McCain just laughed when a woman called Hillary Clinton a bitch. If a rapper is with a politician, first thing that comes up is the language he uses in music.

      Like Jay said, way more people get killed on Grand Theft Auto than any 50 cent cd.

  • DoubleClutch

    It is true…remember G-Unit’s single “Poppin Them Things” was changed to “Rockin Them Things” for MTV… MTV is too afarid of offened its white viewers

  • JD3

    MTV doesnt care about black people…
    but seriously it took them a long time to play black artist when MTV first started up. they really just gave in

  • TKO

    50 always seems to have a good point. music is ight n sold out but still a good point

  • Tommy

    im tired of you weak ass haters hating on shady/aftermath/g-unit there the illest fuck lil wayne fuck dj khalid and fuck the rest of hip hop saying there iller than eminem, jay said ems the best!

  • The Clean Up Man

    OMFG noone actually disagreed with fif, WTF, well i agree, cause he damn sure got a point there

  • P

    ok MTV doesnt care about black people tha same could be said about BET, i remember when they had friday nite freestyle battlin and this white dude from toronto named bishop was on there and killed every MC but they dis-qualified him for cuttin in on this black guy cuz tha guy couldnt even battle him, thas bullshit they waited for the corniest excuse to get white boy kicked off (cam’ron was one of the judges) so its ignorant to say some stupid shit like “MTV dont care about blacks” ok kanye. this is where tha problem occurs, when you have songs like poppin them thangs, i’ll still kill etc its much more agressive material, dont take it to heart b/c they changed the title, i didnt hear fiddy pull tha race card

  • mtv sucks

    I don’t like 50, but he definitely got a point here

  • BLACK GEEZUS

  • P

    50 got tha money, fuck it why dont he start his own music channel maybe then he’d realize it aint just the fuckin program its fuckin politics

  • mike

    First of all, Britney is not hip hop, so that answers his first question. Secondly, how many artists has this faggot dude disrespected, calling them bitches, i mean what’s his point? curtis, with a lil c too, you is a wackass dude. Just retire man.

  • Three4

    I agree with 50 on this one…

  • MosBang

    First Kanye now Fifty is critical of MTV hhmmm?

  • X’ Prime

    50 is completely right I Agree wit him, Censorship is the main factor of the hip hop killing, starts by censoring songs til it aint no more hot.

  • fireforreal

    I got to give him credit that’s the most intelligent thing 50 has said in a long time.I hope he keeps speaking the truth like that.

  • heebyjeeby

    Solution = don’t put the fucking video out on MTV! I bet he want do that, ’cause he wants all the publicity he can get for the album. Why the fuck criticize networks for censorship, and then bow down and meet their demands–just keep yo mouth shut if u gonna do what they say.

  • dark vanilla

    OMG!OMG!OMG! 50 has actually spit some real talk for a change. As much as I hate 50 cent, he speaks da truth.
