50 Cent and Bad Boy

Soon after he was shot nine times in 2000, 50 Cent had a meeting with Diddy to discuss writing for him and possibly even signing to Bad Boy at some point. However, when Puff, who was dealing with his own Club New York shooting case at the time, saw that a paranoid 50 was carrying a Mac-10, he reportedly backed off.
