50 Cent Slams NYC For Giving Prepaid Credit Cards To Illegals

Famous rapper 50 Cent recently expressed his displeasure over the news that New York City is planning to allocate millions of dollars to give migrant families prepaid credit cards.

In his new Instagram post, the rapper even said that the policy might even motivate him to vote for former President Donald Trump in 2024.

The “In Da Club” rapper reacted to a New York Post story published Friday reporting on a policy pushed by the Adams administration that will take $53 million and distribute it among illegal immigrant families in the city in the form of prepaid credit cards.

“WTF, Mayor Adams, call my phone; I don’t understand how this works so somebody explain. @arimelber can’t explain this. I’m stuck maybe TRUMP is the answer,” 50 Cent’s post said.

Such public backing from 50 Cent, one of the most respected rappers of all time, will undoubtedly be appreciated by Donald Trump‘s supporters. The singer suggested he’s planning to support Trump for the 2024 election amid fears that a Joe Biden administration would mean paying higher taxes.

Although it’s not clear if 50 is trolling this time around, this wouldn’t be the first time he has made comments endorsing Trump for president. In October 2020, the rapper encouraged his Instagram followers to vote for Trump because of Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan. Shortly after, 50 said he would consider leaving the U.S. if Trump lost the election.

The prepaid credit card scheme was used last year for public housing residents so they could buy food for the holidays.

“Not only will this provide families with the ability to purchase fresh food for their culturally relevant diets and the baby supplies of their choosing, but the pilot program is expected to save New York City more than $600,000 per month, or more than $7 million annually,” said Kayla Mamelak, Adams’s spokesperson.

If the program succeeds, the city will expand it to the estimated 15,000 migrant families staying in hotels.

Approximately 70,000 illegal immigrants have been bused or flown to New York City over the past year, putting extreme pressure on the Big Apple’s resources.
