50 Cent was the headliner of Thursday night’s Rolling Loud New York festival. The hometown hero gave his first performance as the main act in two years in Queens to the delight of his fans. Fifty opened the set with major hits like “What Up Gangsta” and “Magic Stick.”
He also brought a few surprise guests. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie joined 50 first. He performed the beginning of the show in a puffy track suit that looked very similar to the ones Diddy wore earlier in his career. Later, he threw the jacket into the crowd and explained its origin.
“You know why I threw that jacket. It made me look like Puffy.”
Fifty Cent also welcomed A$AP Rocky and DaBaby to perform with him. DaBaby’s last appearance at Rolling Loud Miami resulted in controversy after Baby made a homophobic slur on the mic. Several additional festivals cancelled DaBaby after the incident.
It was thought the beef between Fifty Cent and Diddy was over. It appears that is not the case. Diddy was obviously throwing direct shade at the Bad Boy mogul during his performance.
DaBaby was given special approval to appear by the organizers of the festival. After his performances of “ROCKSTAR,” “Suge,” and “Bop,” the rapper did a stage dive into the audience. 50 Cent then continued performing his string of hits. You can check out the performance below.
