50 Cent Makes Humbling Admission To Crowd During UK Performance

50 Cent has been out about touring the UK this week, and he recently made a humbling admission while performing to one such receptive crowd, check it out below:

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was performing at the OVO Arena in Wembley on Friday, 10 June.

He made the crowd slightly emotional after he said he wasn't sure if the UK would remember him.

Nowadays, Jackson has pretty much left his music world behind and has become a very successful producer of hit series Power, as well as acting and pursuing entrepreneurial projects.

But when it comes to his songs, those over the age of 25 will remember how much the likes of 'In da Club' and 'Window Shopper' slapped back in the early 2000s, yet younger people might not as aware of his previous dominance in the music game.

The 46-year-old said: "Y'all didn't forget. I thought you forgot about me."

He then made a reference to Dr Dre who produced 50 Cent's major-label debut, 2003's Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

"You know like they Forgot About Dre," 50 added.

For those unaware, 'Forgot About Dre' was a 1999 song by Dr Dre and Eminem and the theme, as you might have guessed, was a message to the 'haters' who thought the producer had 'fallen off'.

Fiddy then began spitting some Eminem lyrics from the song, with a slight twist.

He rapped: "Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got something to say.

"But nothing comes out when they move their lips/Just a bunch of gibberish.

"And motherf***ers act like they forgot about me."

Jackson then went on to perform the classic 'Ayo Technology', which originally featured Justin Timberlake.

Footage of the somewhat emotional moment was captioned, "The UK really showed him some love."

One user commented: "No one will ever forget 50."

A second added: "In a way this new gen/era don’t really know 50 for music.. it’s tv shows lol so he kinda right."

While a third said: "50 cent music too good every generation after his music will live on always been ahead of his time."

Another said: "50 back in the day was goated. A legend."

After his London performance, 50 made his way up north to perform at Manchester's Parklife festival, where he headlined the mainstage on Saturday, 11 June. As he performed in front of an adoring crowd of tens of thousands, it was just further proof the UK hadn't forgotten about Fiddy.
