50 Cent And Jay Mazini Hand Out $30,000 To Burger King Employees
Mr Cent and his associate, entrepreneur Jay Mazini, turned up at the BK drive-thru in South Jamaica, Queens, with the sole intention of making the day of all of the employees.
Fiddy, who is actually called Curtis Jackson III, grew up in the area, so it's obviously pretty close to his heart.
Mazini, on the other hand, created a financial program that made him very rich, then has also branched out into filming videos of himself handing out large wedges of money to people before posting said videos online.
Which brings us back to this incident.
Speaking exclusively in capital letters, Mazini wrote: "ME & @50cent HAD TO SHUT BURGERKING DOWN IN SOUTHSIDE QUESNS [sic]
"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."
Basically, in a round about way, he's just trying to show his gratitude to the unsung heroes of the pandemic.

Hey, we all want a Burger King, don't we? That wouldn't be possible without the brave folks turning up to the restaurants and drive-thru locations worldwide to cater to that need.
God bless them, every last one.
Fiddy himself later shared a video of the pair handing out money to the tearful and shocked workers at the restaurant and said: "@jaymazini is the real deal, he saw me in the hood yesterday so we went tonight and showed everybody some love."
Obviously, this sort of thing could be life-changing for the people who work in that Burger King, but even so, some people on the internet aren't happy about it.
One such person wrote: "The moment you start recording you're simply doing it for clout. this isn't coming from the heart. y'all need to learn the difference."
However, others thought that Fiddy and Mazini were out there trying to simply perform a good deed, even though they did film it and put it on the internet.
One admirer said: "50 always looking out and never get any credit for it!
"You just changed a lot of lives. But you know everybody calling in sick the next day."
Whether he's hunting for clout or not, he's certainly made a lot of Burger King employees very happy, and that's got to be a good thing, right?
