50 Cent was on The Late Late Show Tuesday and while sitting next to Massachusetts Senator and Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren, he revealed how he could have made more money thanks to President Donald Trump.
The rapper, actor, executive producer and all-around media mogul told host James Corden that Trump offered him “half a million dollars” just to attend his inauguration in January 2017.
“I didn’t do it because I didn’t know if I could fix the damage,” 50 Cent said.
50 Cent told a similar story to Hot 97 back in 2017, only then the $500,000 offer was for an event leading up to the election in 2016, right around the time 50 Cent was going through bankruptcy issues. But in both instances, his reasons for not accepting the major payday haven’t changed.
“To be honest with you, all money is not good money. You have to be careful with what you’re doing publicly,” 50 Cent said. “I was just like, ‘Whoa.’ Don’t bring me to fix the African-American vote. Bring somebody else. I’ll see you later.”
And since 50 Cent was sitting next to someone that hopes to have an inauguration of her own in 2021, he offered up some advice for how Senator Warren can better reach young voters.
“Just relax, you gotta loosen up,” 50 Cent said. “Hip-hop is connected to youth culture, so hang out with me when you’re the president.”
