The rapper 50 Cent recently capped off a party for friends and colleagues in New York City by reportedly offering up a massive $1,000 tip.
The 47-year-old hitmaker-turned-actor was dining at the Times Square location of Brooklyn Chop House when he left the significant tip, according to Page Six.
50 Cent (born Curtis Jackson III) also shared some photos from the evening to his Instagram, revealing that DaBaby was among his guests, though he didn’t share the detail about his large tip.
The In Da Club rapper was putting on a party for his Branson Cognac label to celebrate a new deal he had inked for the business.
A source claimed to Page Six that the musician — who is currently setting up his own film studio — ordered ‘every item on the menu,’ while specifically noting that he got the two-pound salt and pepper lobster, as well as several steaks.
Flashing his cash: 50 Cent, 47, threw a party at Brooklyn Chop House in Times Square on Monday night to celebrate a new deal for his liquor brand at which he dropped a $1K tip, according to Page Six
Steaks range from as expensive as $180 for a 48oz porterhouse to as cheap as $49 for a small filet with broccoli.
The menu doesn’t list a price for the lobster, indicating that it probably depends on market price.
As long as 50 Cent’s purchases were $5,000 or less, he could have still provided the recommended 20 percent minimum.
The rapper and his party were reportedly at the restaurant up until closing time.
‘He had a fest [sic] for his team,’ one of the insiders said.
The rapper scored a major deal for his cognac brand in March, though it’s unclear if he was celebrating that achievement or a newer deal.
At the time, Branson teamed up with Le Chemin du Roi Champagne to sell drinks at the Houston Toyota Center.
The brands will be taking care of cocktails at Houston Rockets games, but they will also have access to other events held at the arena.

50 Cent opted for a casual baby blue T-shirt for dinner, which he paired with an all-black LA Dodgers baseball cap.
He added some sparkle to the casual look with a luxury wristwatch, an enormous diamond-encrusted ’50’ ring, and a diamond chain around his neck.
DaBaby, who posed with some of his pal’s cognac bottles for one photo, wore a white tank top with a black-and-white trucker hat and diamond-dusted gold Cuban links.
50 Cent laughed and grinned ear-to-ear in one photo, while a half-eaten steak lay in front of them.
‘Good times, Good living NY vibes Brooklyn Chop House,’ he captioned a set of photos from the evening posted to Instagram.
DaBaby wrote on his own post: ‘Hate it or Love it the under dog on.’
‘Had dinner w/ my Role Model last night. I ain’t never been in the room w/ @50cent without learning something new,’ he added.
His photo showed the group walking into the restaurant, only to be greeted by a plate of cake slices decorated with sparkler erupting into the air.
