Hip-hop star 50 CENT50cent is promoting his new video game as an educational tool for children – despite its violent and sexual content.
50 CENT: BULLETPROOF has been rated mature, deeming it “not suitable” for children under the age of 17, in America.
But the rapper, real name CURTIS JACKSON, insists parents should buy the game for their kids because it will teach them right from wrong.
He says, “Just because it is rated mature doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy it for your kids. Play the game and explain to them what they are playing.
“I think everyone knows that a game is a game. There’s the part where you actually press start on the controller – after that you are playing a game.
“The person that’s influenced by a video game can be influenced by anything.
“If we have to take away video games, then we have to think about other things. And then we have no entertainment because we might influence somebody who’s crazy.”
In the recently-released game, the IN DA CLUB rapper, who has a nine-year-old son, is depicted making his way through New York City’s crime underworld with armed guards and guns blazing.
