50 Cent is not a fan of Donald Trump. He made that much clear earlier this week when he said we needed to “get rid” of the 45th president, and he reiterated that point in a new interview with the folks at Hot 97. Speaking with Ebro Darden, Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez, the rapper claims Trump once offered him $500,000 to appear alongside him during the 2016 Presidential Election.
“Before [President Trump] got elected, they were having issues with the African American vote,” says Fif, whose new show 50 Central premiered on BET Wednesday night (Sept. 27). “They wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign just to make an appearance.” 50 turned it down because he thought it might be bad for his reputation. “I was like, ‘Nah, that’s not good money, ’” he continues. “That’s not worth it!”
Fif’s opinion is, of course, right in line with how just about every rapper feels about President Trump. Of course, rappers were voicing their distaste for Trump before the election, and even more have come forth to diss him since—and as we said up top, people 50 says the controversial president has to go.
Speaking with Whoopi Goldberg and other hosts on The View, 50 said Trump’s presidency is essentially what you’d get if someone accidentally stumbled into the White House.
“I think if I was the president by accident, I would be doing things like that,” Fif started. “If you roped me into a show and I was the president by accident I would be doing what Trump does. It’s like there’s nobody there for help, like, who’s helping him, who’s telling him anything?”
