With all the beef in his life and his inclination to air that beef on YouTube and social media outlets instead of by way of music, which has contributed to the decline of hip-hop as we know it, it makes sense 50 Cent would need a few laughs.
The rapper who’s not into making love launched a comedy site to go along with his diversified portfolio of non-music-related enterprises, including video games, films, and loose-fitting clothes. ThisIs50.com launched with the premiere of This is 50 Comedy Show, emceed by G-Unit comedian Young Jack Thriller (which is a hysterical title, especially when you look at photos of the rest of the G-Units and realize they now have a professional funny man in their posse).
The program is taped in front of a live audience at the Times Square Arts Center in New York City the last Thursday of every month. If you want to catch the action, but aren’t in the Tri-State area, there’s an online, pay-per-view, live stream for $2.99 just for you.
Here’s what 50 has to say about his new venture::
I’ve put together the funniest, most ignorant comedians you ever seen and we will travel the earth bringing laughter, joy, love, and pain, sunshine, and rain. So brace yourselves because we are coming to a city near you.
