Five times when 50 Cent was probably rapping about the Mets
50 Cent, aka Curtis Jackson, aka Fiddy, aka Interscope, delivered a memorable first pitch before a Pirates-Mets game earlier this year. The Queens-born rapper will also perform at Citi Field on Saturday, and it's about time, because Fiddy has (maybe) been rapping about his hometown team since the days of "Get Rich or Die Tryin'." Let's go to the lyrics:
Outta Control: Trust me man it's OK bounce with me in slow-mo/when they hear the kid in the house it's like oh-no
Yeah, he's right. The Kid in slow-mo was a big oh-no.
Patiently Waiting: I'm the boss on this boat, you can call me skipper/The way I turn the money over you should call me flipper
Oh, he must be thinking about Derek Bell. The outfielder made a cool $5.2 million with the Mets in 2000 and purchased a houseboat in the New York Harbor.
Many Men: I'm the diamond in the dirt that ain't been found/I'm the underground king and I ain't been crowned
Back in August 2007, Citi Field was just a diamond in the dirt. It has yet to be crowned, but maybe soon?
Smile: Whenever I'm not around, and you feelin' down/Let the thought of me (be the reason you smile)
It's true. He's not around anymore, but just thinking of Benny Agbayani should make any Mets fan smile.
21 Questions: Do you trust me enough to tell me your dreams?/I'm staring at ya trying to figure how you got in them jeans
Who was he staring at? Oh, OK.
