Rapper Big Sean celebrated the release of his new album Dark Sky Paradise by handing out rare $2 (£1.25) bills to fans at a club performance in New York City on Monday night (23Feb15).

The Clique hitmaker was joined onstage by fellow hip-hop star A$AP Ferg at the party, where they showered the audience with the currency throughout their set to make the event one to remember.

A source tells the New York Post, "They specifically went to a bank and got $2 bills."

A$AP Ferg adds, "$2 bills are more memorable than $1 bills."

Jay Z and Eminem have also previously doled out the notes, which are not typically used on a day-to-day basis, at their shows in recent years.
