Hip Hop’s Artificial Reality:50 Cent and Olivia Alexa Reveal the Fakeness in Hip Hop Music
50 Cent recently filed for bankruptcy and has admitted he had been putting on a front by renting Lamborghinis, Bentleys and Rolls Royces. Is he lying to the courts or has he and countless other music executives and producers in the industry fooled all of us with Hip Hop’s “Artificial Reality.”
Today, it’s not hard to find a young male sitting in his bedroom or on the doorsteps of his inner city home writing rap lyrics on a sheet of paper or typing them into a cell phone. His one goal in life is to be the next Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, or 50-Cent. He wants to live out the lifestyle he’s seen in countless rap videos. He dreams of the women, the flashy jewelry, the cars, and the money.
But is he chasing Hip Hop’s illusion or is there really gold at the end of the rainbow?
According to Complex and Page Six 50 Cent recently filed for bankruptcy and has admitted he had been putting on a front by renting Lamborghinis, Bentleys and Rolls Royces. He also admitted to borrowing the diamond-studded watches and other jewels he flashes on social media. He told the court, “The hip-hop culture is aspirational. It’s like music videos… you see all these fancy cars but everything goes back to the dealership.”
50 Cent also claimed he made just 10 cents for each of his 48 million album sales, totaling $4.8 million, and insisted his net worth is just $4.4 million – despite Forbes finance experts previously estimating his fortune at $155 million.
Now 50 Cent was reportedly worth over $155 million, so why would he have to rent a Lamborghini? Surely, with a net worth in the hundreds of millions he could have purchased one of his own. Something is just not adding up.
Olivia Alexa has a rather interesting perspective regarding what is going on in the world of Hip Hop music.
Here are just a few of the points she addresses in the video:
1) She explains why she feels rap music is nothing more than a hypnosis on our black youth.
2) She mentions how the federal government has learned to control the music and in turn controls the people .
3) She shares how billionaire investors pump millions behind hip-hop and rap artist so that these artist can perpetuate the image of a promiscuous, gun toting, drug dealing race of people in the black communities.

In the music video below, Bizzle raps about how Hip Hop continues to send false messages and images to the black youth that live in the hood. These lyrics and images, portray rappers as successful black men. It’s been noted that most rappers don’t care about their communities and are deemed just as responsible for the death of millions, as the gunman who pulled the trigger. Read more on Genius.com.
