50 Cent Says Donald Trump Offered Him Half a Million Dollars to Help with Presidential Campaign
People are still trying to figure out who to blame for Donald Trump's rise to the office of American president, pointing their fingers at everyone from Russia to Sharknado. One person who isn't at fault, however, is rapper 50 Cent.

In a new interview with Hot 97, Fiddy said he was offered a hefty sum to help Trump's campaign in the lead up to the election. Despite declaring bankruptcy, he still turned down the job.

"Before he got elected, they was having issue with the African-American vote," 50 admitted. "They wanted to pay me $500,000 as a part of the campaign to just make an appearance. I was like, 'Nah, that's not good money.' I'm not gonna do that. That's not worth it."

Elsewhere in the interview, the rapper also offered some thoughts on Trump's work as president. "His presidency is an accident," he said. "If you were a president by accident, you might do some of the things Donald Trump is doing."
