Curtis Jackson was asked in Bangkok about his role in the new war film with Samuel L. Jackson about the Iraq War. What’s your role in the movie? He stated " My character’s 22 years old. [The movie] shows the effects of war. That’s what’s exciting to me about it, because it’s totally relevant to what’s going on right now. It shows not just what happens to a person after killing, but what happens when there’s a lot of death around you. How your spirit changes. I actually went to perform for the soldiers in Iraq. I’m not supportive of the war, but I’m definitely supportive of the soldiers. A lot of people go [to Iraq] who were just trying to get a college education.
And for Spike Lee's recent Black History Month tour where he was bashed, he states "You know what? Since I been overseas I heard that Spike Lee said something. You know, what’s weird to me is, initially no one said 50 Cent glorified violence when I released my first album, Get Rich or Die Tryin', They knew I was experiencing that actual violence that I wrote about on the album. I was actually going through those things when I wrote it. And, afterwards, there’s been so much violence projected on me. Like anything violent that goes on, they kind of put me to it.
For instance, I think Spike Lee’s new motivation for talking about me had something to do with the incident with Busta Rhymes’ bodyguard. The newspapers came out and said that I was there. I wasn’t even in the state when it happened and wasn’t even in the country by the time Spike Lee was mentioning it! You see what I’m saying? But, to his knowledge, I was there. Cause, Spike Lee’s not a friend of mine. You know, I’ve seen a couple of his movies. I actually dislike the part in his movies where the character stands still [and the camera pans back] and it looks like [the character] moves. I think that’s the corniest thing on the planet.ut it’s easier to attack one thing. Like, you’re attacking one person when you say you have a problem with it. And, I don’t know if Spike Lee actually has a problem with 50 Cent, 50 Cent’s image or the things that are being projected on me, or if he just needs new press and publicity. It’s something for us all to look at, you know? Like when you decide from out of nowhere to mention it. Who’s Spike Lee? Spike Lee’s not relevant to 50 Cent. He’s not even in my life. I could care less about him. And to say that he has a problem with my image or what I’m doing creatively, it means nothing to me, you know?" (So why you talking about it for so long Curtis)
