Eric Adams has responded to 50 Cent's recent criticism of New York City's new $53 million pilot program aimed at aiding migrant families. Speaking at a City Hall press conference, Adams told the rapper to hit him up and he'd be down to explain the program.
"First to Fitty, I have not had one birthday that I have not played his music," Adams said. "So I told 50 Cent to hit me up. I would love to explain it to him so that he can go out and do another tweet of saying, 'you know what, Eric is just a smart manager, and now we understand why he was elected by the people of the city of New York.'" He further joked: "Maybe he'll write a song about me."

As for the pilot program, it will provide 500 families with pre-paid credit cards that work at bodegas, grocery stores, supermarkets, and convenience stores. The amount on the card varies by size, but the New York Post reports a family of four would get $35 per day for food. 50 shared the report on Instagram, last week, suggesting that Donald Trump could be the "answer" in 2024. "WTF mayor Adams call my phone, I don't understand how this works somebody explain," the rapper wrote. "Can't explain this I'm stuck maybe TRUMP is the answer."
