The Real Reason 50 Cent Was Upside Down In The Super Bowl Halftime Show

50 Cent might be a hip-hop veteran these days. Back in 2003, however, he was still a relative newcomer to the industry. He was also the protégé of Dr. Dre and Eminem, meaning that he was destined for big things from the outset. “In Da Club,” taken from his debut album “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” is the single that put the rapper on the radars of millions of fans, and its accompanying music video typified his status as the genre’s fast-rising star at the time.

The “In Da Club” music video depicts 50 Cent in a lab known as the Shady/Aftermath Development Center, essentially being prepped by rap scientists for world domination. 50 then introduces himself by hanging upside down from a gym roof and performing his lines. If his recent SuperBowl performance proved anything, it’s that the rapper is still capable of pulling off the stunt with ease.

The iconic upside-down visual made an impression on the rap world too. In 2005, fellow rapper and Eminem associate Bizarre parodied the music video for “Rock Star,” which you can watch here.
