If they're so poor, how were they able to buy his records?!
Last month, a judge ordered the rapper to explain how he was able to show off so much cash on his social media accounts.
But why flaunt it if you don't got it?
On Wednesday, the In Da Club musician's legal team explained that their client shows off his "wealth" because he needs to display a particular image to his fans!
"He has to keep up his image for the fans. Rap fans, they're poor and they want their idols to be rich and something to look up to."
50 Cent's fans are not going to be happy when they hear this!
