Donald Trump Mocks 50 Cent:The Money And The Power: “It Will Fail”

Apparently the business world frowns upon biters as much as hip-hop used to. Donald Trump recently poked fun at 50 Cent and Diddy for producing spin-offs of his hit television show, “The Apprentice.”

“The Apprentice” features business executives in-training as they compete for a job as Trump’s apprentice. Meanwhile, Diddy recently wrapped “I Wanna Work For Diddy,” a VH1 series in which he searches for a personal assistant. MTV is also capitalizing off a Trump-like show with “50 Cent:The Money And The Power.” The series features business hopefuls competing to win a $100, 000 investment from Fif himself. Trump briefly addressed Fif and Diddy during an “Inside City Hall” interview on NY1 last night (11/12).

“I’m in many, many rappers songs,” Trump said during the interview. “And I know them. 50 Cent is sort of a friend of mine. I mean, he likes me. He just did a show. It was a copy of ‘The Apprentice.’”

“It will fail because he’s not Trump, but he’s actually a nice guy,” he continued. “And P. Diddy did a show which, by the way, I think bombed, but it was a copy. I wrote him a little note, ‘Good luck with the copy.’” -Bruce Moses

    That’s crazy to get ethered by Donald Trump. That’s next level.
    The crazy thing is that as smart as 50 Cent seems to have been in all of his strategic moves up to this point, I don’t know why he can’t see that he’s killing himself right now.
    He understood better than anybody that people love the underdog, that’s why he came up.
    He can never go back to truly being the underdog, but he should have gotten as low profile as possible and made moves to make it seem like he’s the underdog again.
    Instead, he’s doing shit, trying to give the impression that he’s bigger than ever, and that’s going to continue his downward spiral.
    I haven’t seen the show and I’ve only seen clips, but that is funny as hell when he kicks somebody off the show and tells them, “get the fuck out of my office!”


      Donald Trum is a Tree TOp Piru so his bitch ass is officially on the wall! He got iniated into the Compton Piru’s By Harry “O” in 1986 I remember when Ice T stepped to him in Watts on the set of Electric Boogolo pt.2 Turbo had to stop me from taking off on his bitch ass that day. I remember he sent me $10 in poker chips and a personal letter of apology begging for his bitch ass life. He is shook to peices of me and he should be! I was named Killa before Cam’ron! His Ex Wife Ivana stabbed me in my thigh because she is a MS13 banger. I remember being in atlantic city and she actually tried to extort me!!!

      In entertainment you gotta get the money while you are hot. Look at all these one hit wonders that aren’t gonna sell enough to pay off their advance. 50 is capitalizing off of his 15 mins. That is a smart biz move if you ask me. How many other rappers go from the hood being shoot 9 times to having endorsement deals and tv shows? Not many. In this day, when cds aren’t flying off the shelf, you gotta get that money the best way you can. MTV is cutting that nigga a fat check, why not deposit it? You would!!!

  • Tony tone

    haha that bitch ass trump….yeah hes done apprentice many seasons but most off them he had to pay from his own pockets to get aired.No one i mean NO ONE likes hes show and he has to pay for the show to get aired,how the fuck you can say that fiddys or diddys shows gonna flop?Maybe the shows gonna flop who cares?i mean i don`t think that fifty or diddy has invested their own money to these shows but they get paid anyway….cos people might wanna see these shows instead of hes.Once again…no one I MEAN NO ONE wants to see hes hair on their tv.Come on. You might be rich but you are a bitch

  • Trickdd

    The concept of the show is played out I have the same feeling that it isn’t gonna be around much longer

  • Trouble

    The difference is that the demographic that Donald Trump appeals to, is not the same demographic that would watch 50/diddy’s shows.

    “It will fail because he’s not Trump”


    “Since white folks aint going to watch it, its a failure”


  • young ito

    Donald Trump has no right to say this because the apprentice was orriginally a British show with entrepeneur Alan Sugar. Trumps version of the show came out a couple of years after Sugars so he actually copied the idea. he cant moan about 50 and diddy doing a similar thing when his show did exactly that

  • amar

    lol but when fiddy cuts someone he goes “GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE”. hahahahhahahha laughed my ass off.

    and fiddy’s show won’t fail as bad as diddy’s simply cause the world loves fiddy and fiddy actually appears in his show, unlike p diddy’s boring ass.

    donald trump should respect 50 cent because they are both marginally talented in their respective fields and for some strange reason got ahead. trump is not a great business person and 50 is not a great rapper but they have both made the money.

    Show me one living thing that hasn’t repeated what could be considered a ‘good move,’ and I’ll show you a liar. Whether it be influence, spin off, based on, inspired by…you get the picture. Since this baffeled country of waywards was created, all we’ve done is take from others (see english language) for reasons that are just and otherwise. To call out two of the hip-hop communities or african americans or businessmen (yu-choos) who can be considered multi-level successful…as in multiple alive and thriving business ventures, tells one thing for sure; Hater and in DT’s case Major Hater. Look around hairpiece, everything especially REALITY TV, has happened before and then was copied or duplicated. Diddy, Fif keep grinding til your hair fall out. Lastly there is something Mr. Remix and The Thing dont have in common with DT: they never had their own 30 million dollar debt.

    I don’t really care if fifty stole the idea are not I just think the whole reality TV thing is played out

    Trumps a racist douche bag. The worst kind of hater is one with lots of doe. If I was him, I’d stay away from the black community too, becuz its a recession right now, niggas is hungry, and ya boy might get relieved of a lil wealth fuckin with us. Fuck his wife too, while I’m on a tirade!

  • moresickaMC

    Trump has 50 on his mind. means 50 is doin sumthn right

  • Enlightened

    In entertainment, you only have to “get the money while you’re hot” when you’re a video chick, or a nigga with no skills.
    When you’re an actual mainstay in the business, if you make smart moves, you can keep getting it.
    15 minutes of fame is a saying that applies to no-talent muthafuckas who get lucky and get one shot to be on TV. 50 was already past his 15 minutes when Get Rich of Die Tryin was out.
    Jay-Z didn’t have to hurry up and get all he could. Neither did Dr. Dre.
    The money MTV is giving him for that shit ain’t nothing compared to what he sees on the regular.
    You don’t think Jay-Z has been offered a reality show?
    All money ain’t good money.

  • droopey

    Trump is a billionaire let the man say what he wants. I suppose Fif and Puff just made a show that would appeal to another audience rather than cracka ass crackers. (Is that the correct term?)


    The diddy show was terrible, so was Fonzworth’s.

    It all depends on the cast, both of those shows were filled with lames.
    Well they wern’t total lames but they def. wern’t television material.

    I’m looking foward to 50s show.
    Either way, he’s set for life.

  • mig

    the shows gonna fail not because its a ripoff of trump but because theyre fucking terrible. i watched 10 minutes of 50s show and thought it was the worst thing id seen on mtv in a long time. and thats saying alot

  • Trickdd

    Put it like this fifty’s time is up in the rap game but Before I Self Destruct is gonna still do good numbers I think for fifty right now people don’t wanna hear him but if he retires from the rap game then five six years later if he where to come back I think people would go crazy again But there is another side to fifty’s fame I think he can make a good career being a actor I really think that’s why he did this show cause he knows how that rap game is right now for him I really think he is gonna just focus on movies where the big moneys at and I don’t blame him I think he is a good actor.

    I’m a freshman in college and I was planning on majoring in Computer Engineering, but unfortunately it doesn’t really seem too interesting to me, especially all the computer programming. I’m considering changing my major to Computer Science except I don’t really know what kind of career a degree in Computer Science will get me. So what is the difference between the two? Please help me out, I don’t really have too much time to ask the advisers at my university, so any help would be appreciated..
