its apparent he got SOMETHING considering they shot the video...
That video cost no more than a couple G's to shoot.
His partnership isn't with Trojan (a corporation)
It's with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (an org)
The main difference is that Trojan is a commercial for profit company, with a Lot of money to play with.
An ORG ike AHF don't got money like that to be giving to some irrelevant rapper, or to license that PSY song for commercial use.
95% of their money goes to their cause.
If he was compensated, it was definitely peanuts. Not this big (seven figure) deal he was making it out to be, trying to impress people
