50 Cent Says He Was Offered $1 Million To Endorse Trump Publicly - Says Lil' Wayne Was Probably Paid
Earlier this year, just before the 2020 election, 50 Cent sparked a lot of controversy in the black and hip-hop community for saying he hoped that Trump would win the election. Curtis Jackson, also known as 50 Cent, took to his account to say he would leave the USA if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won.
It didn't take long for 50 Cent to back-track on his claims. Later, he announced that he was going to vote for Joe Biden instead of Trump. Reportedly, the New Yorker was afraid his taxes would spike exponentially if Biden took public office.
Curtis stopped by the set of The Breakfast Club this week where he claimed he had been offered $1 million to endorse him for re-election. He had been offered $1 million to go to one of his rallies, the rapper remarked.
Jackson said they initially offered him half-a-million dollars to go, but after saying he didn't want to, they offered him a cool million. He claims he was still thinking about whether it was a good idea or not. 50 Cent suggested Donald Trump needed it for the black vote.
Jackson joked that he never did it because he realized there was probably nothing he could do to recover from a move like that, at least as far as the black community is concerned. 50 Cent said this was actually before he posted his comment on social media.
In case you missed it, 50 Cent, not long after rejecting the supposed offer, took to his Instagram after he saw how Biden and Kamala planned to change the tax structure. The rapper says he suddenly and instantaneously posted what he did without thinking, suddenly regretting not working with Trump.
Additionally, 50 Cent says he wasn't paid to post the comment on his Instagram. He says the tax issue was likely overshadowed greatly by the coronavirus pandemic at the debates.
Moreover, Charlamagne Tha God speculated that Lil' Wayne must've gotten paid for his picture with Trump, and 50 Cent agreed.
