50 Cent in San Francisco

50 Cent at the Warfield Theater. Gotta say I’m never that impressed when I see 50. He doesn’t really sing and he doesn’t play any instruments, just a lot of posing and shouted rhymes. He was on time, but about a dollar short. I was reminded of a time in 2002? that I shot him and Jay-Z at a show in Sacramento, and the disparity between them as artists was so huge.
The togs were in the pit with a three song limit, but I swear it was only two when they pulled us out of there. Hip-hop is one of the hardest genres to shoot, since the MCs are moving fast, all over the stage, and constantly have the mic in front of their face. Coupled with the obligatory baseball cap, which blocks light from the face, it’s a perfect storm of difficult conditions. Did I mention twice as much security in the pit with you? Hectic.
