"If you don't lose money in this recession, it means you didn't have enough to start off with," the rap artist and noted financial commentator told London's Daily Telegraph. "Sure, I lost a few million, but that's because I have so much." In fact, like his peer Warren Buffett, 50 Cent sees the recession as an opportunity. "This is a time that will sort out the strong from the weak," he explained. But that doesn't mean he's planning on leaving the rest of us in the dust. He's as generous with his financial advice as he is with his magic stick: "Any businessman who wants a piece of the future should learn from me," he said. Presidents included: "Obama is great. If he wants me as his financial adviser that would be cool."
