50 CENT put his feud with his former G-UNIT bandmates firmly behind him on Sunday (01Jun14) and staged a surprise reunion with LLOYD BANKS, TONY YAYO and YOUNG BUCK at the Summer Jam concert in New Jersey.
The In Da Club hitmaker has been exchanging barbs with his old pals in the media in recent months, accusing them of failing to work hard enough to maintain their careers after giving them a head-start in the music industry.
However, the ex-crewmembers all came together this weekend for their first live show in years, just months after Yayo announced G-Unit was officially over, and delighted fans at the MetLife Stadium with renditions of On Fire, So Seductive and Shorty Wanna Ride.
The gig, 50 Cent’s first appearance at the annual Summer Jam extravaganza in a decade, also marked the end of the rap superstar’s feud with Nas, who introduced him to the stage.
But his set wasn’t without drama – a fight broke out towards the back of the stage midway through 50’s show after a member of rap group Slowbucks was reportedly banned from the platform.
Meanwhile, fellow headliner Nicki Minaj also made sure her set made headlines by stepping out in a sheer silver crop top, clearly displaying her bare breasts underneath.
She preserved her modesty by wearing small nipple pasties as she belted out tracks including Beez In the Trap and her new single, Pills N Potions, while she later joined forces with close friend Drake and label boss Lil Wayne for respective performances of Worst Behavior and Believe Me.
Other artists at Summer Jam 2014 included Trey Songz, The Roots and Wiz Khalifa.
