"They offered me $1 million to go to Trump's inauguration," 50 alleged. "I passed on that. [They initially offered] $500,000 and it went up to $1 million while I was still confused with whether I should do it ... He was needing [my support] for the same reasons you see now, he participated with different artists for the Black vote. And I'm going, nah, I ain't going to put myself in that position, 'cause I don't know what I'd have to do to recover from that."

Fif then agreed with Charlamagne tha God that Lil Wayne was offered money to endorse Trump.

"Yeah, I'm sure," 50 said about Wayne. "Easily. He got paid. He had the sweater and the picture."

Rich The Kid had previously claimed Trump tried to bribe him for his support.

What do you think about rappers giving endorsements for dough?
