QUEENS, NY – 50 Cent was evidently in a generous mood on Tuesday (September 8) when he rolled up at Burger King in his old Southside Jamaica Queens neighborhood.
Along with entrepreneur Jay Manzini, who’s renowned for giving out large amounts of cash in viral videos, the Power mogul surprised several employees at the fast food restaurant and handed out over $30,000 in cash. Manzini documented the generous gesture on Instagram for his 872,500 followers.
“ME & @50cent HAD TO SHUT BURGER KING DOWN IN SOUTHSIDE QUESNS,” he wrote in all caps. “PASSED OVER 30K ME & @50cent TO THESE HARD WORKERS, DURING THIS PANDEMIC.
“FIF TOLD ME I REALLY LIKE WHAT YOU’RE DOING, I TOLD HIM IT’S GOOD KARMA AT THE END OF THE DAY BIG BRO!!! CHANGE LIVES & CONNECT WITH REAL ONES.. SOUTHSIDE QUEENS STAND UP!! YA DESERVE IT.”
In the clip, Mazini walks up to the drive-thru window and asks the woman how many employees were on shift. After learning there were 10 hardworking employees on the clock, he asks for all of them to come to the window.
As Mazini starts handing out stacks of cash, he tells them, “Wait, there’s more.” Suddenly, 50 and his entourage strut up to the window and all of the employees being to scream. Fiddy then pulls out more wads of money out of his pocket and doles it out to everyone standing at the window.
In the background, someone says “it was my day off” and 50 hands him some cash too. From there, a New York Police Department SUV pulls up and 50 jokingly says, “Hey, I got something for you too” before telling the cameraman to stop filming.
50, who shared the same video to his own Instagram account, praised Mazini for his generosity as well.
“@jaymazini is the real deal,” he wrote in the caption. “he saw me in the hood yesterday so we went tonight and showed everybody some love.”
