Making It Rain On Them Hoes: Bugsy Gets Paid A Grip For Not Doing A Damn Thing At A Personal Appearance

- By Bossip Staff

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”…

  • STFU

    @Airun

    The are NOT playing WACKA FLOCKA, GUCCI, NICKI AND OJ OVERSEAS, Not on the Radio…The only way they will hear dirty south music is if they are on a US military base. Why do you think Akon disappeared in the US? Akon is overseas getting paid!

    Sounds like a good deal to me.

  • Kizzy

    I live in the UK and we are ‘hip’ to everything going on in the U.S. at least Hip Hop wise. We know about Drake, Nikki Minaj and Gucci to J.Cole, B.O.B. and Wale but superstars (and i use that word with vigour) like 50(yes, even with the BISD flop), Jay Z, Em and even Wu Tang will always get love because they actually tour here at the accessible venues. Gigging at a little club in Brixton won’t cut it, even if the rappers are popular in America.

  • 4Real-tho

    So What?!! Kim K gets $300,000 for doing the same thing. When you have a big names making a personal appearance at such an event/club for the night, it leads patrons to believe that the event/club they are attending is the sh’ish. Therefore, they get all excited and spend more money. The club charge more that night and make it enough to cover such payouts.

    Club-goers are the fools for thinking they will get to party with such big names. They are lucky if they get to see these people from afar for 5 mins.

  • Getting Paid takes Work

    It is not the American Dream sitting on your butt and doing nothing. To think this is what 50 cent or anyone is doing is a misperception. These people are constantly on the grind behind the scene making deals and negotiating. The would is much bigger that America. You can’t stop a go-getter. Sittin’ on yo azz will not yield anything. You have to cultivate such a crop and connections for your craft to get PAID.

    Haters take note! Even when you write bad things and would like to believe that it over with for say someone like 50, they will prove you wrong because they have a number of avenues to take to keep sustain their goals and business.

    50 ain’t sittin’ on his azz. He is constantly on the grind, tour, etc. to keep his name alive in other countries. The end results is all that matter: “the constant raking in the revenue from so many venues.”

  • Londongirl

    I was one of the ladies he requeted. We had a good time.

  • STFU

    @4Real-tho

    Kim K doesn’t get 300k for appearances. The most she ever got is 100K for a mall opening. Read her Twitter updates. She tells all her business.

    @STFU
    Er no, we just have a bit more loyalty than easily-distracted Americans. Yeah in the UK all this American Young Money and Jason DeRulo might have top 10 hits but Lionel Richie can still have a top album too because he’s basically a legend. I think people here are kind of ‘over’ American hip-hop and rap anyway ‘look at my jewellery!’ ‘look at my cars!’ ‘look at these girls!’ over and over again using the same repetitive generic beats without a hint of irony gets old quick. We prefer our own stuff which either has some rawness about it or can at least make fun of itself to some extent
