50 Cent says Trump offered him $500,000 'just to come' to the inauguration (Video)

Apparently, Donald Trump really, really wanted to beef up his inauguration attendance — and not just for a misleading split-screen with Barack Obama’s. Rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson” told James Corden on Tuesday that the current POTUS’ administration offered him “half a million dollars to go” to Trump’s January 20, 2017 swearing in.

“To play at the inauguration?” Corden asked to clarify.

“No, just to come,” 50 said.

“I didn’t do it because I didn’t know if I could fix the damage,” the “Power” actor and executive producer said. “To be honest with you, all money is not good money. You have to be careful with what you’re doing publicly.”
