During his appearance on “The Breakfast Club,” the “Power” mogul revealed that he was initially offered $500,000 by the Trump campaign to attend the president’s 2017 inauguration but he passed on that offer and it was then upped to $1 million.
50 said Trump was trying to court high-profile Black celebrities to help win support with the Black community. “He was needing it for the same reasons you see now,” he said. “He participated with different artists for the Black vote. And I’m going, Nah, I ain’t gonna put myself in that position, cause I don’t know what I’d have to do to recover from it.’”
50 ultimately decided to pass on the lucrative payday, but he believes Lil Wayne took a check. “Yeah, I’m sure,” he said. “Easily, he got paid.”
“He had the sweater and the picture,” 50 added, referring to (Wayne’s photo with trump)during a campaign stop.
