Director Spike Lee, a long-term critic of gangsta rap, has said that 50 Cent should be ashamed of glorifying 'thug life'.
Lee, pictured, is furious that Fiddy's making money by celebrating a lifestyle he believes young kids, black or otherwise, should not look to follow:
"50 Cent has made a lot of money, but whatever you are doing that makes you have to put a bulletproof vest on your five-year-old son, that's time for some deep introspective shit.
"That whole mantra, 'Get Rich or Die Tryin', for me that's criminal because young brothers, they took that to heart: 'Whatever I got to do to get them rims, get my fly gear, to get my bitches and hos, I am going to do it. Fuck who I got to hurt, who I got to shoot, who I got to kill...' That's crazy to me."
