During the 2022 Super Bowl halftime show, 50 Cent recreated his 2002, Phillip Atwell-directed video for “In Da Club.”
20 years later, could fans really expect the G-Unit founder to hold the same body composition? Well, many fans did, and 50 had a response ready for the “teasing,” taking to Twitter to laugh it off.

“I call this teasing me, They’re just teasing me because they know I can drop the weight,” he wrote. “That's why I laugh with them. Fat shaming only applies when you're ashamed of your fat. LOL.”
He’s carefree when it comes to his weight, following last Sunday’s (Feb. 13) halftime show performance. Dr. Dre brought 50 out, along with Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak and Mary J. Blige.
One Twitter user said, “50 Cent is now a full dollar,” while another user challenged people to join the #InDaClubChallenge, stating, “if you can’t hang by your legs upside down under a pull-up bar for 30 seconds, you can’t call anyone fat.”
Saturday (Feb. 19), 50 posted a picture of Eminem and himself from 2003 and 2022, captioning it, “this friendship is never gonna change.”
Eminem was highly instrumental in 50’s success in the early 2000’s, signing him to Shady/Aftermath Records and putting him in the presence of Dr. Dre. Both Eminem and Dr. Dre served as the executive producers for 50’s debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin.’
