Over the past few weeks, 50 Cent has taken to social media to call out people for not repaying loans he had given them. On Tuesday, Fif’s Power co-star Omari Hardwick recounted borrowing a $20,000 loan from the rapper and repaying it with interest.
During an interview on The Angie Martinez Show, Hardwick revealed, “He loaned me one summer, like, 20 Gs. He said, ‘I can’t have my number one f’d up.’”
The actor stressed the importance of paying back loans with interest. “When we are loaned money, you can’t give back the same amount of money that was loan to you. Because that person’s money could have been making money.”
Because Hardwick repaid his loan with interest, the Power executive producer gave him another loan a year later. “The next summer, he gave me more money; I haven’t re-uped yet. Didn’t have my new contract yet. 50 cent said, ‘I can’t have my investment f’d up.’ He looks at life like that. He was developing a friendship and a brotherhood with me, and I was also his investment, so he gave me another $20,000! Now, I paid that back with more interest.”
As video footage of Hardwick’s interview circulated on social media, the rapper thanked him on Instagram. Reposting a clip from the interview, 50 wrote, “This guy @omarihardwickofficial is the truth He’s a man of his word. 🤨you other n****s best be coming up with my money by Monday.”
50 Cent has recently used social media as a tool to get back money he’d loaned actor Jackie Long and Power co-executive producer Randall Emmett.
He’s currently embroiled in a civil suit against Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood cast member Teairra Mari. The reality star was ordered to pay the rapper $35,000 after she lost a revenge porn suit against him.
