50 Cent Rocks The BX, Brings Out Remy Ma & Jae Hood As Surprise Guests
Security appeared to be tougher than usual at the Bronx venue last night, possibly in light of 50's previous beef with Fat Joe, head of Remy Ma's former click Terror Squad. However, despite being in Joey Crack's part of the city, 50's performance won a stamp of approval - and a few dropped jaws - from the Bronx audience.
According to a source in attendance, 50 hit the stage around 7:30 p.m. and quickly got the crowd moving.
"Tony Yayo came out first," audience member Douglass Bailey said. "They was like 'Yo there will be some shocking shit going on tonight.' Whoo Kid, the whole G-Unit was there together. Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, it seemed like they had unity. He did a couple new songs, they did 'Curtis 187,' he did 'Man Down,' then the 'Lean Back' beat comes on, [and] he brings out Remy Martin. She does the 'Lean Back' verse, people in there was losing they mind."
Remy exited the stage after hugging and kissing 50, but the surprises didn't end there. Former D-Block member Jae Hood also made an appearance at the X Bar concert.
"(50) was like 'Expect the unexpected...Jae Hood where you at?' [and then] Jae Hood comes onstage," Bailey added. "When people seen that people were like 'what the fuck???' When Jae Hood came onstage the 'Fuck D-Block' [song] came on that G-Unit did a couple months back, Jae Hood was nodding his head and raising his hands up and that nigga stayed onstage the whole time for the rest of the show."
The Bronx show is not the first time that 50 has appeared with former rivals. Dipset members Jim Jones and Juelz Santana also showed up onstage with 50 during a previous 5 borough tour stop and Jones also made a "Rap City" appearance with Fiddy last week. Dipset member Hell Rell recently said that unlike Jones, his loyalty is with Cam'ron and he would never "sleep with the enemy."
50's performance last seems to have only created more questions in the minds of rap fans, who are forced to question just how credible rap beef is.
"It blew my mind. Alright the kid leaves D-Block - fine--but for him to be standing next to 50 after all that shit that he talked proved to me two things," Bailey continued. "The rap beef is not as real as we think it is and Jae Hood is a piece of shit. For loyal fans of the Lox, Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek, this kid has been under D-Block, he has D-Block tattooed to his neck. You know how these cats be beefin' and shit. I just never thought Jae Hood would be this kind of disloyal but I guess he really was going through some things with the Lox, that's like Memphis Bleek chillin' with Dame Dash, that shit was just weird."
50 Cent's Curtis is in stores now.
