Hip-hop's most wanted wins over the metalheads...

Flames, guns, tickertape and shoes set the tone for 50 CENT’s performance on the MAIN STAGE at the CARLING WEEKEND:LEEDS FESTIVAL last night (August 27).

50, joined on stage by his G-Unit crew, endured a mixed reception at first on a stage that saw predominately rock bands over the course of the day.

However, boos from the crowd were soon inaudible over cheers as 50 and crew kicked off with material from debut album ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’.

Tickertape rained down on the audience during the opening bars to ’In Da Club’, while 50 stripped down to his trousers during ‘Girl’.

The stripping continued during the shows finale, as 50 threw his shoes into the audience to the sounds of gun shots. After undoing his belt and opening his trousers, the controversial rapper then left the stage and went straight back to the tour bus.
