50 Cent pulled down nearly $75,000 just to hit the Cristal and say “Hey” to a bunch of Brits in a UK nightclub. And that’s about it. Pop the hood for the story.
He wanted to get Rich or Die Tryin’, and it’s fair to say 50 Cent has achieved his goal. We hear the hardman rapper raked in £50,000 for uttering one word at a launch party on Thursday. And the word in question? “Hey.”
Yep, that’s £16.6K per letter. Incredible! Fiddy – who is in the UK on his Before I Self Destruct tour – was wooed by the owners of flash new Liverpool club Bamboo to attend its opening night.And the extravagance didn’t stop at his super pay packet – he also had a budget-busting rider to match. Once he’d been ferried by a Hummer Heaven stretch limo to the city’s first seven-star club, his entourage had magnums of Cristal and Dom Perignon champagne on tap – served up by two models.
Our spy says: “It was the most blinging night ever. People thought 50 Cent might perform a track or two, given the massive fee, but he just greeted the crowd with a ‘Hey’ and got back to his two personally requested ladies, who were lavishing booze on him.”
Why can’t we get a gig like this? SMH at “the most blinging night ever”…
