Earlier this month, two baristas were fired at at a campus coffee shop at Duke University for playing Young Dolph‘s music. Last Friday, May 4th, the university’s VP of Student Affairs Larry Moneta was unhappy that the Memphis rapper’s “Get Paid” was playing through the coffee shop speakers. Soon after the incident Britni Brown and Kevin Simmons, the two baristas allegedly responsible for playing the track from a Spotify playlist, were fire from their jobs after Moneta contacted Duke Dining Services executive director Robert Coffey. Moneta considered some of the song’s lyrics “inappropriate” because it includes profanity and the “n-word.”
On Wednesday after, Dolph took to Twitter and said, “Whoever that VP is, he don’t give a dam about nobody but his self” and that he was “trying to teach the students how to be selfish.”
Whoever that VP is, he don’t give a dam about nobody but his self… I guess he was trying to teach the students how to be selfish I guess……… smh??♂️ ??

The occurrence caught the attention of Young Dolph himself. Just a week after, on May 11, the rapper brought out the two students on the Rolling Loud Festival stage before giving them $20,000 each. See a photo of Dolph and the baristas together below and watch the rapper give them $20,000 above.
