50 Cent’s first pitch fail at a recent New York Mets game was pretty embarrassing for the rapper. Bot not nearly as embarrassing as his explanation for why he botched the throw.

50 Cent First Pitch Fail

The topic of Fiddy’s now legendary super wild pitch naturally came up during a Reddit AMA he conducted last night and Mr. Cent provided a joking (we hope) justification for why he couldn’t put the ball in the same area code as home plate.

"I have a skeletal muscle injury on my left shoulder from excessive masturbation so take it easy lol," 50 responded to the inevitable question on what the hell happened that fateful day.

It’s certainly a more colorful response than 50’s original claim that the pitch "slipped," and we appreciate his attempt at humor, but 50 shouldn’t have been surprised when the rest of the Q & A session was littered with "Curtis Jacks-on" jokes. 


It’s surprising to hear 50 even joke about, um…taking himself out to the ball game, because his previous comments on the topic of masturbation (Yes, they exist for some reason.) reflected a far more serious attitude.

"Masturbation is a sin you stop right now fool!!!" 50 tweeted in 2012. He followed that up with a detailed four-step plan on how to quit.

So there you have it: 50 Cent’s views on pleasuring yourself. Add it to the list of "things you didn’t expect to read about today."

Check out some more of the most memorable first pitches below. No word on whether masturbation played a role in any of these doozies:
