This is exactly what happened to employees at a Queens Burger King location after 50 Cent stopped by and left $30K in cash on Wednesday. He and entrepreneur Jay Manzini visited the home of the Whopper and gave away money to the workers through the drive-thru window.

“Passed over 30K me and @50cent to these hard workers during this pandemic,” Manzini writes on Instagram in all caps, uploading a video of their good deed.

“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 and connect with real ones. Southside Queens stand up. Ya deserve it.”

The video shows Manzini approaching the Burger King and informing the drive-thru attendant to call the rest of the staff to the window. Once everyone is there, he hands them the money, telling them to split it evenly to the crew’s shock. 50 Cent then walks up and engages the staff with handshakes and more money.

While the Many Men rapper is not known for walking around and handing out money, Manzini is known for viral philanthropy. Not too long before the Burger King cash giveaway, the influencer and entrepreneur teamed up with rapper Fabolous to gift workers at a Checkers in Jersey City $5,000 each.

50 Cent recognized Manzini’s giving spirit in his own Instagram upload highlighting their trip to the south side Queens BK.

“Southside we out side @jaymazini heart so good i don’t think he can lose,” the Power producer announced.
