I know for a fact that that VP at that school, he getting money, but he ain't getting money like Dolph.

UPDATE 5/12: Young Dolph flew the two baristas to his performance at Miami's Rolling Loud festival last night, brought them onstage, and gave them each $20k before doing "Get Paid".

In an email to students, faculty and staff Thursday, Price said: "Something has to change", adding, "I will simply say that I am deeply sorry that we are not where we want to be as a university". The song that was playing at the time of Moneta's visit?

Indy Week reports that employees, Britni Brown and Kevin Simmons, were let go from Joe Van Gogh's Duke location after Vice President of Student Affairs Larry Moneta was angered at the pair playing Young Dolph's "Get Paid" in the shop's speaker via a Spotify account.


By Monday, both employees were fired despite not having any misconduct issues before. "Until y'all get you a new job, until y'all find you a new job, I got $20,000 for y'all right now". Moneta told ABC11 that while the employees made a poor decision, he did not demand their firing. 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.

"That's absolutely fabulous. Certainly much better money they could make working at the coffee house", Roberts said.

Within 10 minutes Joe Van Gogh's owner called the shop to ask about the incident. "I believe it's the right thing to do to preserve Joe Van Gogh's brand independence without conditions", Joe Van Gogh owner Robbie Roberts said in a statement.

The coffee shop announced it was cutting ties with Duke University just hours after the concert, according to WTVD.
