50 Cent’s first pitch at the Mets-Pirates game in New York’s Citi Field was hilarious. He even practiced before he the event. But 50 wasn’t the only rapper to take the mound before a Major League Baseball game (he also wasn’t the only rapper to throw a bad pitch, see Nelly). Six other MCs tried their hand at the ceremonial first pitch. Some were good, some not so much.
