50 Cent admits that he doesn't understand Minecraft's popularity.
Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has had one foot in the videogame industry since he released 50 Cent: Bulletproof in 2005, but he can't quite figure out what people see in Minecraft. During a CES interview with The Verge, the rapper was upfront with his confusion. "Minecrafting?" he said. "Like, I didn't know what was going on with that. It looked like they didn't finish making it."
Mr. Cent admits that he doesn't actually play Minecraft, only that he had recently been exposed to the title. But it doesn't sound like he's going to give up rap and rededicate his life to Minecraft any time soon.
CES has become a familiar backdrop for 50 Cent's business dealings. In 2011, he founded SMS Audio, a headphone company in the same vein as Beats by Dre. This year, the company is showing off its latest gear, including a Star Wars-themed line and a Sports collection that's been endorsed by Carmelo Anthony.
Even though 50 Cent doesn't seem to understand Minecraft, the rest of the gaming world certainly does. Over 33 million copies have already been sold, and the title is still MIA on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So, that number is probably going to get significantly larger.
