Snoop Dogg offered to pay Power star Rotimi's $300,000 loan after 50 Cent demanded the return of his money.
The In Da Club hitmaker has earned himself a reputation as an online debt collector in recent months, using his social media accounts to publicly slam those who allegedly owe him cash.
His latest victim was Rotimi, who stars alongside 50, real name Curtis Jackson, in hit U.S. TV show Power, with the rapper sharing an Instagram video, which referenced the star's record Walk With Me, as he ranted: "My man you owe an outstanding $300,000 now WALK WITH ME to the bank." He gave Rotimi, real name Olurotimi Akinosho, until Monday (03June19) to pay the alleged debt.
Rotimi, who plays low-profile drug dealer Dre in the program, hit back by insisting he doesn't owe 50 anything, saying in his own video: "I don’t owe 50 money. The thing is, my record number one, I just bought a crib, I’m taking care of my family… Why now? Why wait ’til Walk With Me is number one?”
Following the exchange, Snoop weighed in and offered his own aid, in a bid to save Rotimi's Power character from being culled at the hands of the show's producer 50.
“I don’t want (his character) to get killed on Power (over the debt),” Snoop said on Instagram, before addressing 50 Cent: "I think you gonna kill him (Dre) next ’cause he (Rotimi) owe you money."
"I'm gonna pay you, how much he owe you? Let's talk about it, let's figure it out. Don't kill him, I'll pay you for him."
50 then shared the Instagram clip on his own page and wrote: "Damn ok, n**ga got @snoopdogg involved. smh (shake my head)."
The musician has previously taken aim at actor and producer Jackie Long and Randall Emmett, a fellow producer on Power, for allegedly owing him money.
