50Cent (Curtis Jackson) Makes More than Good on Promise to Mo’Nique



In March, Curtis Curtis 50 Cent   Jackson went live with his support for Mo’Nique, and he’s been actively lobbying for her since. Reportedly Superbowl weekend, Fifty (Jackson) went to see Mo’Nique perform stand-up at a comedy club, and he was mesmerized. Jackson was so taken in by her talent that he immediately batted for her.  The serial mogul had this to say in a follow-up post,

“Went to see [Mo’Nique’s] stand-up show Superbowl weekend. Oh shit! It was so good; she had my ass in a trance. You gotta go check her out the shit was [fire].”

Jackson’s Integrity on Display

Today headlines confirm that 50cent is a man of his word. He isn’t merely waiting for someone to put Mo’Nique on. He’s leading by example. His recent post says it all,

“Guess who i got in BMF this season GOLDIE. GLGGreenLightGang I don’t miss, THE UNDER DOG’s BACK ON TOP.”

And that’s what’s up!

Jackson’s Leaves a Trail of Support

For months the press has been covering Jackson’s moves in Mo’Nique’s regard, and he has been unrelenting. Fifty not only made a public display of his support of the actress-comedian in March, but he put Oprah and Tyler Perry on blast. This is what the mogul had to say then, 

“I’m sure Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry would not want to continue to allow their influence to damage @therealmoworldwide career, and this has went on for way too long,” 50 wrote on Instagram. So now would be a great time to apologize because I’m gonna put her back on. 🤔GLG🚦GreenLighGang 🎯I don’t miss!

He’s doing just that.

Mo’Nique’s Journey: We See You

Mo’Nique hasn’t been silent about her interaction with Hollywood after her award-winning performance in Precious. Despite her powerful performance, not all her actions set well with more powerful influences. As a result, Mo’Nique has contended she was blackballed. 

The Hollywood reporter had a sit down with the actress in 2015. She was more than clear about the moment she realized it would be a while before she got roles in Hollywood again. She recounted her conversation with Lee Daniels,

“I got a phone call from Lee Daniels maybe six or seven months ago. And he said to me, “Mo’Nique, you’ve been blackballed.” And I said, “I’ve been blackballed? Why have I been blackballed?” And he said, “Because you didn’t play the game.” 

It’s been a long road back.

Jackson Calls Out Cancel Culture

Jackson has taken the time to lift another artist and call out cancel culture. Undoubtedly, Jackson has a point.

It is time to re-evaluate cancel culture. As Fifty pontificated,

“We only suppose to cancel shit that ain’t good for the culture. We need you to WIN again now MONIQUE.”

 Whether one is or isn’t a Mo’Nique fan, in this case, shouldn’t matter. Undoubtedly, Mo’Nique has done her thing. She’s put in the work and perfected her craft. Merit deserves fair recognition. 

Kudos to Jackson for making a move. Congratulations to Mo’Nique. Now it’s up to her to get her shine on and actively demonstrate what she has spent years polishing.
