G-Unit head 50 Cent did not put on his for his city this week after making a scheduled appearance at the New York Mets game for a public first pitch. #ThatWasBad
Local New York media outlets took note of Fif’s now-infamous throwing arm.
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.

A New York reporter also poked fun at the mega rap star’s first pitch.
Later on, 50 said the bad pitch was actually the work of his alter ego — birth name Curtis Jackson. “50 Cent is the best,” he told SNY reporter Kevin Burkhardt during an interview in the fourth inning. “Curtis Jackson, I don’t know what’s the matter with him.” (NY Daily News)
Fif revealed he would be more than a spectator at a Mets game last week.
“Throwing out the first pitch at the @Mets game on MAY 27 . be there This is gonna be good. #SMSAUDIO pic.twitter.com/LV2anio7iT,” 50 tweeted with a photo of the Mets’ CitiField stadium. (50 Cent’s Twitter)
Reports last December revealed Curtis Jackson would help launch the Mets’ summer Concert Series.
The New York Mets today announced 50 Cent will play at Citi Field Saturday, June 14 following the 4:10 p.m. Mets-Padres game. The Queens-born rapper will kick off the the 2014 Mets Concert Series presented by Duane Reade. Tickets for post-game concerts are on sale now at Mets.com and (718) 507-TIXX. Admission to the concert is included in the price of the game ticket. (New York Mets)
