Young Dolph is making things better for the two Duke baristas fired for playing his music. The rapper flew the pair out to his performance at Rolling Loud in Miami and gave each worker $20,000 during his set, as Complex reports. Bringing them on stage during the performance, the rapper said:

“So check this out, this what we got do. I know for the 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.”

Since the incident, the school’s vice president Larry Moneta has issued a statement defending his reaction, while Duke University President Vincent E. Price has apologized for the words of his colleague. The coffeeshop has also announced plans to cut ties with the university, with owner Robbie Roberts writing that “Joe Van Gogh has always been about bringing people together, not driving them apart. We are open to all people and we value people over profits.”
