(AllHipHop News) It's well reported that Donald Trump was looking for celebrities to join him on the campaign trail and during his Inauguration. Some entertainers like Kanye West, Stacey Dash, and Floyd Mayweather showed support for the businessman-turned-politician.
However, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson was not willing to help Trump get elected. The Hip Hop mogul was a guest on Ebro In The Morning this week, and he recalled how half a million dollars wasn't even enough to endorse The Donald.
"Before he got elected, they were having difficulty with the African-American vote," said 50. "They wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign to just make an appearance. I was like, 'Nah, that's not good money.'"
He added, "That's not worth it."
The Hot 97 interview also included Fiddy and Ebro Darden debating who was more responsible for "ruining" New York City Hip Hop. After the 50 Cent/G-Unit run in the early to mid-2000s, Atlanta became the epicenter of the culture.
50 put the blame on Ebro - the radio station's program director at the time - for not playing local artists' music. Ebro pointed at 50 for beefing with other NYC emcees like Ja Rule, Fat Joe, Jadakiss, Cam'ron, and Nas.
In addition, Jackson discussed his new series 50 Central which debuts September 27 at 10:30 pm ET/PT on BET.
