$500,000 to 50 Cent

Guardian music “50 Cent says Trump offered him $500,000 to join presidential campaign” https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/sep/28/50-cent-says-trump-offered-him-500000-to-join-presidential-campaign


Rapper 50 Cent*1 has claimed that Donald Trump’s team offered him $500,000 to make an appearance in Trump’s presidential campaign.

The musician and actor was discussing the Trump administration on US radio station Hot 97 when he mentioned the president’s proposal, adding that he believed it was motivated by a desire to appeal to black voters.

“Before he got elected, they were having issues with the African American vote,” said the rapper, real name Curtis Jackson. “They wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign just to make an appearance.” Jackson revealed that he turned down the offer, as it would have sullied his reputation. “I was like, ‘Nah, that’s not good money, ’” he said. “That’s not worth it!”*2

It’s not the first time Jackson has publicly discussed the president this week. The rapper also shared his thoughts on Trump on US chatshow The View on Monday, concluding “we gotta get rid of him”*3.
