Celebrity appearances are a staple of nightclubs these days, elevating the price of entry for clubs and making money for the celebrities that appear. It wasn’t always that way though. Back in the day, record execs like Puff Daddy would have to pay off club owners or DJs to spin an artist’s new tracks. In today’s celebrity-driven culture, the script has been flipped.

In The A: The Changing Faces Of Atlanta Hip-Hop Oct 21, 2013 at 01:49pm
Atlanta, Georgia. The city bursting with waffle houses and strip clubs also happens to be one of today’s hip-hop capitals. Trap music has skyrocketed over the past couple years, ATL being its home. Twenty years ago, however, there was a much different picture in the A. The Dirty South was simply trying to garner recognition while the East and West Coasts shared a stranglehold on the rap scene. Crazy how times change.

African king Mansa Musa (the richest person in human history) was rather fond of gold. At the time of his death in 1337 he was worth a staggering $400 billion dollars.

The pitcher's mound is a stage, a very different stage from the one rappers and singers are accustomed to standing upon. The ceremonial first pitch is ostensibly a celebration, and throwing the ball 60 feet in a particular direction may not seem like much of a challenge. But much can go wrong. From Kendrick Lamar to Snoop Dogg to MC Hammer to 50 Cent (!), here are 20 hip hop artists who took the mound for the ceremonial first pitch.
