Rommates, get into this amazing story! Two Duke University employees, Britni Brown and Kevin Simmons, were given the boot from their job at the school’s coffee shop, Joe Van Gogh, for playing Young Dolph’s song “Get Paid.”

Young Dolph was pissed when he found out what had happened and decided to fly Britni and Kevin out to his show at the Rolling Loud hip-hop festival in Miami Friday night for a surprise I’m sure they’ll never forget.

When Dolph hit the stage he called the two former employees up with him.

“So this what we gon do,” he said. “I know for a fact that the VP at that school he get money, but he don’t get money like Dolph. So look, check this out … until y’all get a new job and find y’all’s new jobs, I got $20,000 for y’all right now.”

Dolph gave them each $10,000 while his song “Get Paid” played in the background.

This unfortunate incident happened on May 4 when Larry Moneta, the vice president of student affairs at Duke University walked in the coffee shop and complained about the music playing.

The two employees were later fired.

Larry spoke with ABC11 and said that the music was inappropriate but didn’t ask for them to be fired.

He issued a statement saying the following:

“Last week, I went into Joe Van Gogh as I often do to purchase some items. I was shocked to hear lyrics playing quite loudly I found quite inappropriate for a working environment that serves children among others. I expressed my objections to the staff with whom I’ve always had a cordial relationship. I insisted on paying for my purchase and left the store. I then contacted the director of Duke Dining to express my concerns and that was the end of my involvement.To those who feel that I’ve flipped on my positions on free expression, I say this. The artist who wrote, recorded and performed the music is absolutely entitled to do so, however offensive I might find the lyrics. The employees who chose to play the song in a business establishment on the Duke campus made a poor decision which was conveyed to the Joe Van Gogh management. How Joe Van Gogh responded to this matter was solely at their discretion.”
