50 Cent Performs for 25,000 Concertgoers in Kosovo

50 Cent made history on Monday (December 17) when he became the first high-profile artist to ever perform in the politically volatile Southeastern European province of Kosovo. According to Reuters, Fif drew some 25,000 attendees to the soccer stadium in the would-be capital city of Pristina. While celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Mariah Carey have been to the area before, they visited as part of humanitarian missions or came to entertain NATO troops posted in the region. Kosovo has been run by the United Nations Interim Administration Mission since 1999 when the provinces war with Serbia came to an end. Many fans feared that 50 would back out of the show because of increased tensions as Kosovo prepares to declare its independence from Serbia. “I haven’t missed a show date in my career,” the rapper told Reuters. “I know exactly what happens when the guns come out. Maybe that’s why they (identify) with me.” Despite the presence of riot police stationed around the arena, the concert went forward without any major disturbances. “It was super. Tonight we saw 50 and we hope that the next thing we’ll see is independence,” teenager Edona Ahmeti said after the show.

    And this is why 50 feels he’s better than every rapper not named Jay-Z and Puff…
    who else has that much international attention? Maybe Kanye, and probably Snoop. But not Dipset or Fat Joe…

  • niqui

    GO FIF YOU THE BEST DO YA THING HOMIE

  • Rednose pit bull

    first off i want to say im glad to see hes actually helping someone other then his self for once..and second 50 sucks,his music after get rich or die trying is garbage and he went from a rapper rapping about real life to a rapper that raps about his money and cars…he shoulda kept it real,not started rapping like all the others,that makes him wack as shit now

    • EReal

      Or maybe you’re not hearing the same music. I get money, Still Kill, and Man Down are all fuckin sick. What was bad about the Masscre besides Piggy Bank? Guns come out and Baltimore love thing stand out in my mind.

      GRODT Soundtrack is sick as fuck. 3x Plat LAST YEAR.

      Plus I got G-Unit Radio CDs 1 – 25 and a buncha other Random Whoo Kidd mixtapes that say different.

      Its funny to me how The Massacre sold 1.1 Mil first week, but people are always on that “After Get Rich, blahze blah”. But noone said that until last year (06) when the backlash started. I suggest going back and listening to The Massacre, or even the G-Unit album that came out after GRODT and try saying thats all garbage. *SMH*

    fuck that snitch. Keep his bitch ass over there perminently.

    • Dickrider Hater

      Try bringing a relevent rapper. lol.

      Without 50, youd be stuck with Snoop’s old, sold out, Rick James wanna be azz. You should bow down and kiss the ring, cause ur favorite butterfly faced thong wearin stripper rapper would be sittin on a shelf right now. lmmfao!

      You cali lames crack me up.

  • http://gfsgjsfj TIME IS MONEY

    kosova (albania) is the biggest ghetto in europe.
    they had war for years, them niggas is crazy

  • Get It Right

    Calimovement, will you please stop with this snitchin shit, the term has been put outta context for the longest now. 50 said “Listen to my lyrics”, don’t you think if the feds brought him in that they already knew bout his music, would have already listened to his lyrics. They were already lookin at Preme and Murder Inc. for some time before 50 even came out and dude(Preme) had been locked up a couple times before. Do your research homie. Since you call yourself Calimovemt, uh where is Game at and the whole so called Blackwallstreet crew…..don’t worry I’ll wait. All I know bout is Juice and although he’s ok, he sounds too much like Game and won’t do nothin Mainstream.

    50′s the best ever!i love him!

  • 757va

    I GUESS HIP HOP IS EVERYWHERE

  • K-OS

    First of All Big Up to 50 !! It was sthg historic and plus a buisiness move. I’m from Kosovo and 50 came actually for 1 or 2 millions $ I don’t know exactly. The second phone company of the country bring him in Kosovo the price of the tickets were 5€ + a phone number. It’s first of all a buisiness move i think !! but respect to him to come in a such region that’s shown like a dangerous place even if that isn’t true !! and yeah hip-hop is everywhere
