Russell Simmons has shown his support for 50 Cent following the rapper’s charity wish to help Africa on Twitter.

“I want to impact people’s lives more. I created a new goal for myself, I want to feed 1 billion people in Africa over the next 5 years,” tweeted 50 Cent earlier this week.

Hip-hop mogul Simmons was quick to back his friend up: “It is always inspiring to see people who come from ‘hell’ who want to create heaven,” he told GlobalGrind.com. "Like Malcolm X and many others who have come from struggle, it is the journey out of darkness to become advocates of light that is the most impressive.

“What I read from 50 shows the maturation of an artist and the maturation of a man. As I have always said, celebrity ain’t worth s**t unless you can help people. Keep pushing 50, we will follow your lead!”
