Video Reveals How 50 Cent Got Into Position For Super Bowl Half-Time Show

Fan footage has revealed how 50 Cent got in position for his performance at the Super Bowl half-time show. Watch here:


50 Cent (37p) was the surprise package during the star-studded performance, which featured hip-hop royalty Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar.

As Dre and Snoop pointed to the ground, the camera panned down to below the stage, where the rapper could be seen recreating the music video for his 2003 hit 'In Da Club', in which he hangs upside down.

Those in attendance at SoFi Stadium in Southern California – as well as the millions tuning in around the globe – were shocked to see the 46-year-old joining the all-star cast; and they were even more shocked to see him hanging upside down.

Some also quite harshly asked whether he should really be attempting such a stunt these days; however, video recorded inside the stadium shows he had no problem getting into position.

You might think - given the sheer amounts of money spent on the Super Bowl - that a machine got him into place or held him up. Hell, they could have splashed out on a hologram for all we know.

But the footage shows that 50 - real name, Curtis Jackson - actually just pulled himself up and into position with a minimum of fuss.

Many people were impressed by the behind/below the scenes footage of how the surprise was pulled off.

Commenting on the video, one person said: "Everyone can say why they want about 50 Cent, but the man is 46 and he just pulled himself up and rapped upside down.

Another added: "People are talking about 50 Cent's body but yet he literally lifted himself up and hung upside down. I'd say he's in shape lol loved it!!"

A third wrote: "50 got up by himself. Y'all haters leave him be lol. Sickest transition!"

The surprise was one of many highlights in a half-time show which many people think was the best ever.

One person tweeted: "Best halftime show ever, it's over"

Another said: "This halftime show is like when you put on your throwback playlist. Best halftime show in years."


The medley also featured performances of 'Lose Yourself', 'Next Episode', 'California Love' and 'Alright'.
