The always entertaining 50 Cent on Tuesday visited Hot 97 to promote his new BET show 50 Central.
While talking to Ebro In The Morning, the artist and entrepreneur revealed the secret to Donald Trump‘s minority outreach strategy during the 2016 campaign. The campaign apparently was doling out cash in exchange for photo-ops, 50 claims.
“They asked me before he got elected,” 50 said. “They was having issues with the African American vote. He wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign to just make an appearance. I was like, ‘Nah, that’s not good money. I’m not gone do that.’ That’s not worth it. You would just be remembering every time you look at me.”
Trump won the election with with 8 percent of the Black vote, 28 percent of the Hispanic vote and 27 percent of the Asian-American vote, according to the Reuters/Ipsos Election Day poll.
