50 Cent isn’t always the easiest cat to like. Everyone knows that. However, there are times when he does something very human and very cool and it becomes just so damn hard to root against him, like donating $10,000 to help another rapper’s mom fight breast cancer.

Over the weekend, 50 took to Instagram to let the world know how proud he was to donate the huge stack of cash to Passion for Pink, a foundation started by Hitman Holla’s mom, a breast cancer survivor. A year ago, 50 lost his grandmother to the disease so naturally she was a part of his motivation to give to the cause.

“If you noticed me over the years you know I don’t mind fighting. I been fighting my whole life,” 50 Cent wrote. “I had to fight in my hood for position, fight my way into music,fight to Win. Now I gotta fight to keep it, it’s cool it’s just another fight. The only lost on my record is to cancer my Nana was the love of my life, but @hitmanholla mom is gonna Win the rematch for me.” [sic]

Now, we can argue all day about whether or not 50 truly is broke, an argument that he wants us to have because of course. There’s probably a lot of schadenfreude in watching the guy who seemingly couldn’t be touched in the rap game be humbled. I’m probably as guilty of that as anyone else, on the real.

But, there’s a special club for people who’ve lost a loved one to breast cancer and from one fellow member to another, I gotta take my hat off to 50 and salute him for this one. When he says that Hitman Holla’s mom is going to win the rematch for him, he’s speaking for a lot of people and I couldn’t have said it better even if I tried.
