We previously reported on the story of the two baristas, Britni Brown and Kevin Simmons, who worked on the campus’ Joe Van Gogh location. Their day took a turn for the worse when Larry Moneta, the vice president for student affairs at Duke, walked into the cafe, heard the catchy tunes of Dolph, and got offended. So offended that he went out of his way to get the two baristas fired from their jobs. The song that was playing at the time of Moneta's visit? Dolph’s "Get Paid."
Following reports of the story, the Chicago-born rapper hopped on social media to express his thoughts on the situation.
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🤦🏽♂️ 👎🏾— its DOLPHHHHHH! (@YoungDolph) May 9, 2018
And now it looks like Dolph not only flew out the two fired baristas to Rolling Loud in Miami to catch his set but also gifted them a cool $20,000. Dolph brought them on stage, Revolt reports, and said "So check this out, this what we gon do. I know for a fact that the VP at that school get money, but he don't get money like Dolph." He continued, "So until y'all get a new job, I got $20,000 for y'all right now."
Young Dolph just gave the two workers that got fired from the Duke coffee shop for playing his music $20K on stage at #RollingLoud...— Abiyoyo (@MeWeFree) May 11, 2018
Looks like it all worked out in the end.
