Rapper and “Power” executive producer 50 Cent took time out of his Tuesday night to perform a good deed with entrepreneur and YouTuber Jay Mazini.
On Sept. 8 the rapper shared a post of himself and Mazini donating $30,000 to all the workers at a Burger King in Queens, New York, that day.
The video opens with Mazini standing at the drive-thru window urging the restaurant employees to approach him. Mazini greets the workers, asks how they’re doing and tells them he has something for them. He pulls out banded stacks of cash and begins handing them out to the increasingly excited restaurant workers. After handing money to perhaps six workers, he tells them to wait, that he has something else, and everyone who works there will get something. 50 then approaches the window.
By this time the workers are exuberant as they recognize the hip-hop giant, who greets them at the window and then reaches into his own pockets and removes banded stacks to hand out to the employees.
Mazini is known to do charity work and giving back to those in need, so it only makes sense for 50 to participate. His post about the generosity said, “PASSED OVER 30K ME AND @50 CENT TO THESE HARD WORKERS, DURING THIS PANDEMIC.”
Fans raved about the “Power” producer’s act of kindness.
One fan said, “Man, I love to see sh-t like this! 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌.”
“Yo 50 still respected in his own hood! Wow that’s how you know he gets down for real! Respect! 🙏🏾” a second fan wrote.
A third fan commented, “He’s the real deal !!!!💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯.”
“Yasssss I love 50,” a fourth fan gushed.
A fifth fan raved, “God bless you @50cent 🙏 🙌 ❤.”
One fan praised the 50’s gesture because they felt too many fast-food employees receive low pay. “That’s awesome. Those people are so underpaid. And although those type of jobs are usually for young adults, sometimes that’s all grown adults can get. It’s a good thing to help those of us that haven’t made the right decisions in life, it can give hope. That’s what’s up!”
50 Cent is no stranger when it comes to making headlines in regards to money. The mogul has been trolling celebrities who have owed him money. In 2019, his list included “Love And Hip Hop: Hollywood” star Teairra Mari, his former “Power” employee Rotimi, and comedian Michael Blackson, and that’s just to name a few.
Back in 2019, Mari owed the rapper more than $30,000 in legal fees after a judge threw out her lawsuit against him. 50 even asked for additional $100 on top of the interest rate he said came up to $2597.80. Next in line was Michael Blackson, who said he owed the rapper money and “two bottles of Ace” from a night out at a strip club in 2019. Blackson said he only paid the rapper $5, for which 50 retaliated by sending the comedian a hefty male visitor when he was out with other people.
As for his former “Power” employee and artist Rotimi, the rapper posted a message to the “Walk With Me” singer saying he owed him $300,000 as the Nigerian actor was celebrating his entry on the Billboard charts.
50 Cent can be named many things, but predictable isn’t one of them. Whether he is trolling celebrities for his money or generously giving his cash away, one thing that can be said about him is that he is honestly keeping people on their toes.
