50 Cent at one point appeared to be supporting Trump as well. Last month, 50 Cent  posted a screenshot of the alleged Biden Tax Plan from CNBC program “Power Lunch”. Under Biden’s plan those who are earning more than $400,000 could be hit with a 62% in taxes. Along with the screenshot, 50 Cent claimed he was leaving New York and voting for Donald Trump.

Through Chelsea Handler, 50 Cent clarified his headline making post and said he was supporting Joe Biden.

During his interview Tuesday morning (November 17), 50 Cent also revealed he was offered 1 million to show his support for Trump. “They offered me $1 million to go to Trump’s inauguration. 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.”
