50 Cent Said He Doesn’t Identify as a Person and Wants to Be Referred to as a 'Thing' - WhatsOnRap

50 Cent Claims His New Pronoun Is “THING/IT" 

50 Cent's Pronoun Switch: From He/Him to Thing/It - A Unique Turn in Hip-Hop Identity Conversations.
50 Cent has humorously declared a change in pronouns, now preferring to be referred to as "thing/it" instead of he/him. This unconventional move follows a growing trend in artists expressing their preferred gender pronouns. Lil Uzi Vert, in 2022, embraced they/them pronouns after thorough consideration of gender identities. 

50 Cent, known for his humor, reiterated his identification as "thing/it" in a subsequent post, emphasizing his unique choice. This unconventional twist adds a layer of individuality to the evolving conversation around gender identity in the world of hip-hop.

This eccentric pronoun shift by 50 Cent serves as a notable moment in the ongoing evolution of gender identity discussions within the realm of hip-hop. The G-Unit mogul, known for his candid and often humorous social media presence, announced the unconventional change via Instagram on November 13 during his Final Lap Tour in Europe.
In the carousel of photos shared on Instagram, 50 Cent humorously expressed his desire to be referred to as "thing/it" instead of the traditional "he/him" pronouns. He seemingly played with the idea, stating, “Please refer to me as the thing 50cent, I do not identify as a person anymore I’m a thing,” he (seemingly jokingly) wrote. “Thank you in advance.”
 This unexpected announcement created a buzz in the media, prompting 50 Cent to reiterate his preference in a subsequent post on November 15.

In his follow-up post, 50 Cent captioned a screenshot of an article about his initial announcement, stating, “Yes I identify as thing, my pronoun is THING/ IT,” he captioned a screenshot of an article about his initial post. “Please refer to me as the thing 50cent,or you can say that thing 50cent is the shit!”

While 50 Cent's declaration carries a humorous undertone, it underscores a broader shift in the industry's attitude towards gender identity. Lil Uzi Vert's similar revelation in 2022, expressing a preference for they/them pronouns, further contributes to this evolving narrative.

These instances of hip-hop artists challenging traditional pronouns highlight a growing acceptance of diverse expressions of identity within the genre. As the industry continues to evolve, these moments contribute to a broader conversation about individuality and inclusivity in hip-hop culture.
