Rapper Lil Wayne was all over the news when he shared an image of Trump on his social media handle.
Rapper 50 Cent, who always felt Wayne would endorse a candidate for money, feels the rapper was paid to support Donald Trump .
There are also rumours that Wayne’s girlfriend, Denise Bidot, left him for the same reason.
"(They were) offering me a million dollars to come to Trump's inauguration, right? I passed on it… (It was) $500,000, and then it went up to $1 million while I was still confused with whether I should do it," said 50 Cent.
50 Cent says he declined the offer because he felt Trump merely wanted woo African-American votes using him.
"And I'm going, 'Nah, I ain't gone put myself in that position', 'cause I didn't know what I was got to do to recover from it, right?" he added.
50 Cent's allegation against Lil Wayne came to fore when the radio interviewer commented Wayne "definitely" took money to campaign for Trump.
