- Bryant Gumbel, Spike Lee, 50 Cent, Kanye West and Mike Tyson pose backstage after the first performance of the Broadway play ?Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth? held at the Longacre Theatre. New York City, USA ? 31.07.12
Mike Tyson, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Spike Lee and Bryant Gumbel walk into a room together and take a picture.
It sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, except for the fact that it was reality Tuesday night (July 31) in New York City.
The very different—and very distinct—personalities all posed for flicks together backstage in New York City’s Longacre Theatre following a viewing of Mike Tyson’s one-man Broadway show, Undisputed Truth.
Shortly following the pictures, 50 took to his Twitter to let his over 6,878,140 followers just how much he thoroughly enjoyed the Spike Lee-directed show all about the former boxing champion’s life.
“Man mike show was so good you have to see it,” the G-Unit general tweeted. Spike lee did a amazing job. I was crying he was so funny.if your not a regular broadway play fan you still have to go see it. The show was sold out there wasn’t one empty seat. I had a great time you have to see this I can’t explain it. It’s call THE UNDISPUTED TRUTH check it out.”
Of course 50 and Tyson are far from strangers. The Queens rapper purchased Tyson’s old Connecticut mansion and last year, tapped the former heavyweight champion to appear in a commercial with him and Floyd Mayweather for the rapper’s Street King energy drink. The clip had the trio parodying the Las Vegas lush-laden Hangover movie.—Mark Lelinwalla
