A 50 Cent poolside concert almost took a deadly turn when one of Fif’s celeb-pals decided to make it rain for the crowd. Curtis was performing a string of hits from his catalog, including his recent jingle “I Get Money” at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
It was all fine and dandy until boxing champ and G-Unit affiliate Floyd Mayweather made a surprise appearance. According to TMZ.com, Mayweather started throwing money into the crowd, thus creating a money-surfing episode at the event. Some of the notes fell in the pool and some desperate fans plunged into the water in pursuit of the bills.
Fans pushed and tucked at the stage, nearly forcing it to collapse into the water. Concerned for the crowd’s safety, 50 warned the wet fans to steer clear of the stage to avoid being electrocuted. Seeing as no one was ready to heed his warning, 50 decided to walk away from the concert.
