Rapper 50 Cent was laughing all the way to the bank following a guest appearance at a British club on Thursday - he earned $75,000 for uttering one word to clubbers.
Bosses of the new nightspot Bamboo in Liverpool, England persuaded the In Da Club hitmaker to turn up to the club's opening night by offering him the staggering sum, as well as an array of free champagne and two beautiful girls to stay by his side all night.
Hundreds of revellers turned out to see the superstar, but they were disappointed after he only left his VIP spot to say "HEY" to the packed club before returning to his entourage, according to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "It was the most blinging night ever. People though 50 Cent might perform a track or two, given his massive fee, but he just greeted the crowd with 'Hey' and got back to his two personally requested ladies, who were lavishing booze on him."
