Fif has a heart, sometimes.

Published May 26, 2016

After news broke of a shooting at Irving Plaza Wednesday night (May 25) it’s been learned that 50 Cent made a trip to the hospital.

Troy Ave, who was one of the three injured during the shooting that also took another man’s life, was visited by Fif, who also came to Bellevue Hospital early Thursday morning to see another woman he knew.

PIX11 News is reporting that 50 was at Bellevue to visit a friend’s girlfriend, and tweeted that the rapper explained, “I’m here to support my friend, his girl was shot. What’s happened here is not good.”

T.I., who headlined the New York concert, was uninjured and did not perform as his set was scheduled after the gunfire rang out. According to an eyewitness as reported in The New York Times, the shooting began after a backstage fight spilled on-stage during a performance by Maino and Uncle Murda.

A gunman opened fire in a VIP green room above the stage, where approximately 50 people were reportedly present. Another eyewitness told the New York Daily News that the shooting occurred over a beef between Troy Ave and Maino’s crews.

Officials say security footage of the event exists, however no arrests have been made as of now. Footage captured by some of those who were there has surfaced, including a pretty vivid look at what happened right before and right after the incident.
