New York rapper 50 Cent is getting the second chance he desperately needs. His hometown Mets have publicly reached out to him about pulling through to throw the first pitch at an upcoming game.
Since yesterday, the Mets have hit up 50 on Twitter with an invite to hit the pitchers mound again.

Back in June 2014, 50 Cent provided a sexual explanation for throwing a now-infamous weak first pitch at a Mets game.
It was such a woeful throw you’d think 50 Cent was blind. He might be … because of too much masturbation, as the old saying goes. 50 Cent has tried to laugh off his terrible, terrible pitch at a New York Mets game last week by claiming he was hobbled by a, uhhhhhhh, pulled muscle. “I have a skeletal muscle injury on my left shoulder from excessive masturbation so take it easy lol,” Fiddy told a Reddit Ask Me Anything forum.

Days prior, Fif claimed a local cop felt no shame in bringing up his pre-Mets game throw while on duty.
“That was Curtis that did that. See, I’m trying to get Curtis to be more like 50 Cent. … You know what, I actually got pulled over by New York City police. They pulled me over in my car. He pulled me over and I said, ‘I got my license,’ right, because I was a little nervous. As soon as he pulled me over, I was like, ‘Uh-oh. What’d I do?’ And then, he said, ‘You know that pitch was terrible.’ He didn’t give me a ticket, no thing. He said, ‘Just go ahead. I don’t want to mess up your day because you made me laugh.'” (“Good Morning America”)
Local New York media outlets took note of Fif’s throwing arm when the footage went viral.
Baba Booey is off the hook. Rapper 50 Cent threw out what could be considered the worst ceremonial first pitch in the history of Citi Field, surpassing the Howard Stern producer for that subjective honor. And by quite a large margin. The Queens rapper took the rubber before Mets-Pirates on Tuesday night. Throwing left-handed, 50 Cent launched one way wide of Mets catcher Anthony Recker. (NY Daily News)
