In a recent performance at London’s O2 Arena as part of ‘The Final Lap’ tour, spectators of a 50 Cent concert got more than they bargained for. In an electrifying twist, globally renowned artist Ed Sheeran made a perplexing sudden entry onto the stage, catching everyone in the audience off-guard.
Obtained video footage highlights the iconic moment when 50 Cent encouraged the jubilant audience to ramp up their energy levels. This tempo-establishing command was accompanied by a large digital cube making its grandiose entry onto the stage in time with Ed’s chart-topping hit, ‘Shape Of You.’
The scene evoked an air of confusion amongst the primarily rap-oriented crowd as the distinctive strains of Sheeran’s pop-powered ballad echoed throughout the arena. As the live vocals of the British artist gained prominence, 50 Cent rallied the spectators to raise their hands in unison.
As the crowd obeyed, the digital box ascended, introducing the Britpop sensation himself to the audience. This revelation ignited an enthusiastic cheering from the crowd; their delight manifested in an instant scramble to capture proof of the unexpected musical collaboration.
This is not the first instance where 50 Cent has added an element of surprise to his performances. His track record includes sharing the stage with heavyweight artists such as Busta Rhymes and Eminem, but Sheeran’s inclusion marked the rapper’s first foray into pop collaborations.
However, the rapper’s thrilling stage antics have contributed to some legal controversies along his career path. A notorious incident involved 50 Cent hurling a microphone into the crowd, which he claimed malfunctioned and fueled his frustration.
The unfortunate recipient of this charged reaction was Power 106 radio host, Bryhana Monegain. The microphone struck her in the face, causing harm that eventually led to her filing a police report against the veteran hip-hop artist.
The City Attorney’s office commended on the episode, notifying that no official criminal charges would be pursued against 50 Cent. The stipulation in place was that the rapper maintains his innocence and refrains from committing similar actions.
With 103 shows planned across 35 countries, 50 Cent’s ‘The Final Lap’ tour still has 18 thrilling performances to go. Fans in India, Australia, Thailand, and numerous other countries are eagerly anticipating their chance to witness the rapper’s famed performance ‘In Da Club.’
