G-Unit leader 50 Cent was attacked by a fan during a recent performance with Lloyd Banks in Brazil.
Based on footage and reports, the fan came after 50 during his “Ayo Technology” performance.
Although 50 Cent’s been in recent headlines for his verbal assaultson Diddy, it looks like the tables have turned now that a crazed fan tried to physically attack him in Brazil. 50 Cent was performing a concert in Salvador, Bahia when a fan suddenly rushed the stage and grabbed him from behind. The fan’s moment of glory was short lived however after Fif’s security jumped to his rescue, grabbing the man and escorting him off stage, punching and kicking him in the process. (Hip Hop Wired)

I am still sh*tting on my self from the food and water… yipes are there pampers in Germany!” (DJ Whoo Kid’s Twitter)
G-Unit rap rival Fat Joe used 50’s 2008 on-stage chain snatching against the rapper’s street credibility in 2009.
“I’ma show you that footage of Joe walking through the hood in Angola,” Crack promised. “I can’t believe that one. Man look you in your eye, yap you and walk off? That’s amazing. I never seen no sh*t like that in my life…That p*ssy was shocked…It’s irrelevant [if 50 got the chain back.] You get robbed in front of America? This is what I’m saying, did he get robbed in front of America? This is my sh*t, get the chain back? That’s that bullsh*t, a n*gga get robbed and then you send your man ’cause he know him and get the chain back? N*gga you the illest gangsta? You the killer of all killers and n*gga robbing you on TV? He got robbed on TV. Never seen no sh*t like that in my whole life. That’s incredible, Smack. Ask him about that sh*t because he’s been keeping it real low though. I ain’t hear from that n*gga in a minute. He ain’t tryin’ to argue with n*ggas, ‘Yo, let’s keep the fat n*gga quiet, let’s keep Game quiet, let’s keep everybody quiet and it’ll die over.'” (SmackTube)
Fif’s incident took place while performing in Angola around May 2008.
50 Cent had his necklace stolen by a fan during a concert in Angola. The incident, which took place as the rapper was onstage, was captured on video by a fan. In the video, the music stops as the person grabs the necklace and climbs back into the crowd. Responding to the incident on his website, 50 said security at the concert had been “limited” and “fans were able to interact with the group onstage”. Contrary to the fans video, the rapper claims his own footage of the incident shows he “pushed him off the stage and jumped into the crowd and then all hell broke loose.” (Gigwise)
