Apparently the business world frowns upon biters as much as hip-hop used to. Donald Trump recently poked fun at 50 Cent and Diddy for producing spin-offs of his hit television show, Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Apprentice.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The ApprenticeÃ¢â‚¬Â features business executives in-training as they compete for a job as TrumpÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s apprentice. Meanwhile, Diddy recently wrapped Ã¢â‚¬Å“I Wanna Work For Diddy,Ã¢â‚¬Â a VH1 series in which he searches for a personal assistant. MTV is also capitalizing off a Trump-like show with Ã¢â‚¬Å“50 Cent:The Money And The Power.Ã¢â‚¬Â The series features business hopefuls competing to win a $100, 000 investment from Fif himself. Trump briefly addressed Fif and Diddy during an Ã¢â‚¬Å“Inside City HallÃ¢â‚¬Â interview on NY1 last night (11/12).
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m in many, many rappers songs,Ã¢â‚¬Â Trump said during the interview. Ã¢â‚¬Å“And I know them. 50 Cent is sort of a friend of mine. I mean, he likes me. He just did a show. It was a copy of Ã¢â‚¬ËœThe Apprentice.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It will fail because heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not Trump, but heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s actually a nice guy,Ã¢â‚¬Â he continued. Ã¢â‚¬Å“And P. Diddy did a show which, by the way, I think bombed, but it was a copy. I wrote him a little note, Ã¢â‚¬ËœGood luck with the copy.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬Â
