US President Donald Trump reportedly offered rapper 50 Cent half a million US dollars to join his campaign. 

The musician and actor revealed the president's proposal on Wednesday, during an interview on US radio station Hot 97.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, commented that the move was likely motivated by a desire to appeal to black voters.

"Before he got elected, they were having real issues with the African American vote," said Mr Jackson. "They wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign just to make an appearance,"

Mr Jackson added that he turned down the offer, as it would have compromised his reputation. 

"I was like, 'Nah, that's not good money. That's not worth it'".

This isn't the first time Mr Jackson has publicly condemned Mr Trump. Just this week, he appeared on US chat show The View to express his thoughts on the controversial US President, concluding: "We gotta get rid of him".
