50 Cent blasts Mayor Adams plan to give pre-paid credit cards to migrants

Rapper 50 Cent is no fan of Mayor Adams’ plan to distribute $53 million to city migrants on pre-paid credit cards, blasting the idea in an Instagram post Saturday.

“WTF mayor Adams call my phone, I don’t understand how this works somebody explain,” the rapper wrote after sharing a screengrab of the Post’s coverage. “Can’t explain this I’m stuck maybe TRUMP is the answer.”

The city program will offer asylum seekers at the Roosevelt Hotel with hard cash, intended to help them pay for food, according to city records.

The program will begin with 500 migrant families in short-term hotel stays.

A family of four could receive nearly $1,000 a month.

50 Cent, also known as Curtis James Jackson III, was once one of the biggest rappers of the 2000s.

He later diversified into music production, his own clothing line, and a partnership with Vitamin Water.

Reps for City Hall did not immediately respond to request for comment from The Post.

50 Cent, like many rappers, has long nursed an affinity for Trump — and endorsed him in the 2020 presidential election — citing a fear of tax increases.

“I don’t want to be 20cent” under Biden he jested in an X posting during the campaign.
