50 Cent Stars in Hilarious ‘Maleficent’ Parody on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ [VIDEO]
50 Cent is many things. A skilled rapper, an actor and a successful business man, just to name a few. But does one of hip-hop’s villains make a good witch?
It may sound like a strange question, but the ‘How to Rob’ MC went on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last night (June 5) and took part in a hilarious skit titled ‘Malefiftycent,’ a clear spoof on the Angelina Jolie-starring film ‘Maleficent.’ Obviously, Kimmel’s writers wanted to seize the opportunity to spoof the movie while it’s still doing well at the box office.
50 does a great job of setting up the clip, and makes the viewing audience think he’s promoting an actual movie. “I did a big one. This one ain’t going to no Red Box,” he said, not breaking a smile and looking completely sincere.
The clip starts out with actual footage from ‘Maleficent,’ as actress Elle Fanning’s voice is heard saying “I know who you are. Your shadow has been following me ever since I was small,” as a pair of horns and a dark silhouette appear on screen.
As the image gets closer, you see a smiling 50 Cent sporting the horns and wearing a leather coat with a furred collar — looking like the hip-hop version of Angelina Jolie’s character Maleficent.
But what takes the gag over the top is the one-liner Fif gives. “I’ve been shot nine times. I’m not scared of no little white girl,” he says, which generates a huge laugh from the studio audience.
He then ends the effort by doing an evil chuckle, as green flames shoot from his hands. “This s— just got magical.” Again, causing the studio audience and probably everyone else watching to burst out into laughter. Then the words “Get Witch or Die Trying” appear — the perfect way to end the skit.
Right now, the ‘Irregular Heartbeat’ rapper is on a promotional blitz for his new album ‘Animal Ambition,’ which is slated to sell at least 35,000 units in its first week, according to the site Hits Daily Double.
