50 Cent may have a chance to redeem himself.
While 50 Cent may be the king of Internet trolling in the rap world, that doesn't mean he can't be trolled. The rapper caught a huge L in 2014 after his horrible first pitch attempt at Citi Field for the New York Mets. Earlier this week, 50 Cent spoke on the imfamous incident and owned up to the whole thing and even mentioned that he wanted to make up for it. Today, it looks like the New York Mets are offering 50 a chance at redeeming himself from the embarrassing moment.
The New York Mets Twitter account recently tweeted at Fif to give him a chance to make up for his horrible pitch. "Hey @50cent, we heard you’re ready to redeem yourself?! Here is your invite to throw out a first pitch this season. Toss a strike this time!
#50FirstPitch," they tweeted after quoting a video of Fif's pitch from the MLB. While 50 is yet to respond, it's doubtful he'll turn this one down. "I have to redeem myself at some point," the rapper told Newsday earlier this week, "Maybe if I get out there and throw a really good pitch they’ll let me go a little bit." So hopefully, this ends up happening.
50's first pitch has been immortalized in many forms. While in an internet age, it's hard to get away with something that publicized without memes and gifs being made, it has also been made into an official baseball card.
"I go, ‘Wait a minute: Who cleared this?!’ Whenever baseball comes up, there is no one worse than me, as far as throwing out a pitch. I had no idea that throwing a bad pitch would be so big," he said in the interview earlier this week.
