    Rapper and game star says his M-rated game is OK for minors; thinks parents can use game as a teaching tool.

    50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, is no stranger to parental warnings. The hip-hop star's albums come tagged with "Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics" stickers, as much of his musical material contains sexual elements, references to illegal drugs, and straight up thuggin'. Nevertheless, the rapper has sold millions upon millions of records, and is currently one of the music industry's biggest stars.

    It came to no one's surprise that 50 Cent: Bulletproof, published by VU Games, was rated M for Mature for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, and Use of Drugs. The Entertainment Software Ratings Board believes that "Titles rated M have content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older."

    Jackson thinks otherwise. Today, he told Reuters that his game is not only OK for kids, but it also could be used to teach them life lessons.

    "Just because it is rated Mature doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it for your kids," the rapper, whose given name is Curtis Jackson, told Reuters in an interview Tuesday. "Play the game and explain to them what they are playing."

    The game that they will be playing sees 50 taking on underground crime syndicates in New York City with a boatload of guns, capping would-be foes in the dome, and looting their corpses for cash. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's preview.

    "Teaching tool"?

    Does he want to teach them to "bust caps" and "steal"?

    Well i get what he is saying. Kinda like if they see this, there exposed to what it whats wrong with it, and wont feel the need to do it them selfs.

    Rather stupid to bad mouth him, when he basically saying censoring is gay.

    Witch it is gay, so....

    Does it matter?

    People like to make money, at least we have some one, for what ever reasons, saying something bad about censoring. Other then jake thomson cencoring games, mpaa censoring movies, FCC censoring everything else.

    Im just saying who cares about him, at least the word is out there.
