That's Nice: Young Dolph Gives $20,000 to Coffee Shop Employees Who Were Fired for Playing His Music [Photo]

Young Dolph is giving back to his fans.

During the Rolling Loud festival in Miami Friday night, he announced that he will present $20,000 to two Duke University coffee shop employees who were fired for bumping his song “Get Paid.”

Dolph flew out the students and brought them on stage where he announced the gift.

“So check this out, this what we gon do,” he said in video obtained by Revolt TV. “I know for a fact that the VP at that school get money, but he don’t get money like Dolph. So until y’all get a new job, I got $20,000 for y’all right now.”  

The two employees of Joe Van Gogh coffee shop were fired after Vice President of Student Affairs Larry Moneta visited the shop and heard the lyrics of Dolph’s track blasting loudly.

He approached the employees Britni Brown and Kevin Simmons and confronted them about the lyrics that heavily featured the N-word.

“Joe Van Gogh is contracted by Duke University, so we essentially work for them. And they can shut us down at any point,” the HP rep, Amanda Wiley, told the pair in audio obtained by Indy Week.

“Duke University has instructed us to terminate the employees that were working that day,” she said, but explained that both of them were good workers.

“Get Paid” was part of a Spotify playlist that Brown was in charge of that day.

Hours before Young Dolph offered the big bucks to the ex-employees, Joe Van Gogh revealed they were cutting ties with Duke University.

That was a nice gesture.
