50 Cent Says He Turned Down $500,000 From Trump To Tap Dance For The Black Vote

Donald Trump might be stashing a white hood somewhere in the White House these days, but there was a time when the Conman-In-Chief was actually (barely) cool with the Hip-Hop culture. Not so much anymore though.

But while he was running his racist presidential campaign, Donald Trump was apparently willing to pay 50 Cent $500,000 “as a part the campaign. Just to make an appearance.” Knowing it was all a ploy to trick Black voters into voting for Cheeto, 50 rightfully declined the fer.

During an interview with Ebro In The Morning, Fif said “I was like ‘Nah, that’s not good money… Yeah, i’m not gonna do that. It’s not worth it.”

It makes sense being that at the moment 50 was stomping for Hillary Clinton free charge (least to our knowledge), but unfortunately Russia did everything they could to make sure enough Americans voted against her in key states.

50 did throw Agent Orange a lifeline sorts when reflecting on The Bum’s erratic governing calling his Presidential victory an “accident.”

“If you were president by accident, you might do some the things Donald Trump is doing… I think he was campaigning] to build his prile for a bigger deal on television, and everything else.”

Speaking on the few times he met Trump in the past 50 added that he “I didn’t even know he’s who he is now.” No one really did. Donald even appeared on G-Unit Radio once back in the day and called everyone in the studio “a great group people.” Well, that’s an upgrade over “very fine people” we guess. Still, Donald Trump ain’t sh*t.

Check out the interview in its entirety below.

Luckily, a brand new French documentary titled Les débuts des Daft Punk – Daft Punk Unchained can shed a little light on this much-discussed topic.

Much time has passed since an image a de-masked Daft Punk have been revealed — 22 years, to be exact. They’ve done such a good job at remaining in complete anonymity, according to the documentary, that they can even take the Parisian metro with zero fans coming up to ask for photographs. However, Daft Punk Unchained, has happened upon a rare cameo Thomas Bangalter from a Quentin Dupieux film that came out in 2015, where the musician can be seen sitting in a waiting room reading the newspaper.

Ultimately, however, they mysterious outfit has once again succeeded in generating an unimaginable amount hype without even trying  — a classic skill, indeed.

However, at this point, the defense attorney has not yet made the defense witnesses available for us to depose. The defense attorney is now indicating he’s not free for the taking the depositions until late October or early November,” seemingly pointing to a delay on X’s side.

A scathing account the alleged abuse he inflicted on his then-pregnant ex-girlfriend was released last month and painted a grim picture what the woman claimed to have experienced at the hands the accused. In response, X recorded a handful videos scfing at the allegations, saying, “Everybody that called me a domestic abuser, I’m finna domestically abuse your little sister’s pussy from the back.”

Florida is one the few states that allows defense lawyers to conduct pretrial depositions witnesses. X’s ex-girlfriend’s deposition and those three other witnesses were a part the process.

Following the release his debut solo album, 17, last month, the controversial rapper emerged with a new look in a video he posted to social media. He shaved f his eyebrows and dyed his hair white, proclaiming, “Humans fear what they don’t understand. Always and forever.”
