50 Cent is for the people — despite what their age may be — and he proved this still to be true when he saluted an elderly woman at one of his UK shows earlier this week.
After the second of two shows at Birmingham’s Resorts World Arena, the G-Unit mogul reposted footage of the woman dancing along to Curtis standout “Ayo Technology.”
“The coolest person at my show tonight by far, she was rocking wit me. Birmingham second show. LOL,” he captioned the Instagram post on Tuesday (November 14).
Fans had plenty to say about the woman who stood out among the crowd. “When the G in G-Unit stands for Granny,” one fan joked, while another said: “Ayo she deff tired of using technology!”
Another fan gave 50 props for being able to sell out arenas across the globe thanks in large part to albums released in the 2000s.
“I don’t care what anybody says the way 50 selling out shows across the world,” they wrote. “He doesn’t get enough credit! I don’t care how you feel there aren’t of ton of hip hop artist selling out arenas multiple nights across the world!”

With fans packing out arenas for concerts, that also means listeners are running up the streaming numbers for 50’s music, like his 2003 debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, which recently reached yet another Spotify streaming milestone, crossing the four billion stream mark.
The G-Unit boss took to social media to reflect on the accolade and give some advice for younger rappers. “See why I be saying take your time make it a classic. Over 4 billion Spotify streams,” he captioned the post.
The rewards continue to pour in for 50 as “In Da Club” also joined the billion club when it surpassed a billion Spotify streams back in June. “Take your time make it a classic then it won’t go away,” 50 wrote at the time.
Earlier this month, 50 earned his first diamond plaque, as that same song made history, becoming the 43rd rap track to reach diamond status.
“In Da Club has officially reached Diamond 10,000,000 singles sold,” he wrote to IG. “The 43rd Hip Hop song to go Diamond, 121 songs of all time to do it. I feel good, I’m that thing 50cent.”
50 Cent’s Final Lap Tour continues this week with UK shows in Manchester and London.
