Rapper 50 Cent has claimed Donald Trump offered him $500,000 to join his presidential campaign.

Curtis Jackson, known professionally as 50 Cent, claims the business man and television personality offered him a hefty sum to support his White House campaign in 2016.

Speaking to radio station Hot 97, 50 explained: ''Before he got elected, they were having issues with the African American vote.

''They wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign just to make an appearance. I was like, 'Nah, that's not good money.'''

50 said the quantity of money was still under what he was would take in return for his support saying, ''I'm not going to do that. That's not worth it!''

Jackson also discussed Trump’s behaviour with the show’s co-hosts, saying it will be challenging not to take aim at the president on his new Comedy Central show, 50 Central.

"His presidency is an accident," Jackson said. "If you were a president by accident, you might do some of the things Donald Trump is doing."
