50 Cent Claims His Bad Pitch Was Due to an Injury From “Excessive Masturbation”

1 minute read

Last week, rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson embarrassed himself by throwing an outrageously awful opening pitch during a game between the New York Mets and the Pittsburgh Pirates. While he initially laughed it off with the reasonable point that he’s a rapper, not a baller, apparently the bad pitch was still irking him and he wanted to give his public a more satisfying reason for his lackluster baseball skills.

Now, Jackson has come forward with another viable excuse for his poor performance: He has a “skeletal-muscle injury” on his left shoulder.

The cause for that injury, though, is potentially more embarrassing than his pitch. In a Reddit AMA, to promote his new album Animal Ambition, 50 Cent claimed that the bad pitch was due to ‘excessive masturbation.’

There’s nothing more American than baseball, rap and “excessive masturbation” apparently. But with all that “excessive masturbation” when does he have time to hang out with his new friend Guy Fieri?
