When there isn't a proper stage involved, club performances can get pretty messy, and 50 Cent's appearance at Stage 48 in New York Saturday night was a perfect example. 

Clips from the rapper's renditions of "What Up" and "Window Shopper" at the DJ Envy and DJ Spinking-hosted event have made their way online, and while 50 himself seems like he's had at least a couple drinks, the crowd is even looser, as the rapper is forced to intervene with the audience as they fight amongst themselves and push their way toward the stage.

As far as we know, things didn't escalate beyond that point and no one was seriously injured. Still, having a security guard in the mix for next time might not be a bad idea.
