According to a recently deleted post on Instagram on Saturday, 50 Cent, the rapper, strongly opposes Mayor Adams' proposal of allocating $53 million to distribute prepaid credit cards to migrant families in the city. He expressed his disapproval of the plan in response to a news article posted by the New York Post on their website. The article discussed the city's plan to provide prepaid credit cards to migrant families for food expenses.
After of the Post's article, the rapper expressed confusion over a call from Mayor Adams, stating “WTF mayor Adams call my phone, I don't understand how this works somebody explain @arimelber can't explain this I'm stuck maybe TRUMP is the answer.”
According to city records, the city program will provide monetary assistance to asylum seekers staying at the Roosevelt Hotel, specifically for the purpose of aiding them in purchasing food.
The initiative will commence with a total of 500 migrant families who will be temporarily accommodated in hotel stays.
A household consisting of four members may be eligible to receive close to $1,000 per month.
Curtis James Jackson III, who is also recognized as 50 Cent, was a prominent rapper during the 2000s era.
Afterwards, he expanded his ventures to include music production, launching his own clothing brand, and forming a collaboration with Vitamin Water.
Rapper 50 Cent is not a supporter of Mayor Adams' proposal to distribute pre-paid credit cards to migrants. The program, which will provide hard cash to asylum seekers at the Roosevelt Hotel, has received criticism from 50 Cent. People are seen lining up at an immigrant intake center at St. Brigid school in the East Village, Manhattan, in a photo captured by Stefano Giovannini.
There was no immediate response from City Hall representatives when The Post requested a comment.
According to the New York Post, 50 Cent, similar to many other rappers, has always had a strong liking for Trump. He even showed his support for Trump during the 2020 presidential election, expressing his concern about potential tax increases under a Biden administration.
