During a recent interview, 50 Cent let the tea spill about his dealing with the Trump administration. He reveals they offered him $1 million to attend the president’s 2017 inauguration to attract more voters.
The rapper states, “He was needing it for the same reasons you see now. He participated with different artists and s—- like that for the Black vote… And I’m going, nah, I ain’t gonna put myself in that position. ‘Cause I don’t know what I’d have to do to recover from that, to be honest with you.”
He added that the initial amount offered was $500,000, but they later doubled the amount while he was still trying to make his decision.
He was then asked if he thinks Lil Wayne was paid for his endorsement, and 50 said, “Yeah, I’m sure. … Easily, he got paid.”
During the interview, 50 Cent also talks about Pop Smoke, Verzuz battles, and his success.
