50 Cent Says "Hey" to Sold-Out UK Club, Gets Paid $75,000
Published Mar 29, 2010We're beginning to understand why tough-guy gangsta rapper 50 Cent has said he'd like to explore club music on his next album. After all, late-night party spots have been treating the rapper well these days. Take, for example, a British nightclub who reportedly paid the rapper $75,000 for saying one word to a sold-out crowd.
WENN points to a story in Britain's Daily Mirror, who report that Fiddy was given free champagne and $75,000 to hang out at a new club in Liverpool, England. With the rapper in tow, the club filled to capacity as fans waited for him to say something. Allegedly, he stepped up to the crowd, simply said "hey," and retreated back into his VIP area.
A source to the British paper said, "It was the most blinging night ever. People thought 50 Cent might perform a track or two, given his massive fee, but he just greeted the crowd with 'Hey' and got back to his two personally requested ladies, who were lavishing booze on him."
To be fair, this tabloid has been known for some inaccurate reporting in the past, but we wouldn't put it past the rapper to collect a sum like that for just for uttering a single word.
