[artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist] is a very busy man. He’s been working with [artist id="1061"]Dr. Dre[/artist] and [artist id="502642"]Eminem[/artist] on his forthcoming album, Before I Self Destruct, as well as their next projects. He’ll be playing the Bamboozle Left festival alongside [artist id="1235716"]Fall Out Boy[/artist] and [artist id="2402281"]Cobra Starship[/artist]. He’s even found time to get into a war of words with Rick Ross .
But as he promised Ross in one of those messages, 50 also found time to travel to Caracas, Venezuela, for a surprise performance with Wisin y Yandel on Saturday. He helped the reggaetón giants close out Solid Fest at the Hipódromo la Rinconada. Daddy Yankee and Enrique Iglesias also played the two-day festival.
“The excitement about being in Venezuela is tremendous, to see the music break the language barrier — and the opportunity to do that in an area where actually they’re the bigger artist,” 50 told MTV News.
50 emerged from the stadium wings, along with [artist id="1237480"]G-Unit [/artist] members Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks, to surprise the crowd of 40,000 screaming fans during Wisin y Yandel’s set. They performed the official remix of G-Unit’s “Rider Pt. 2″ called “Asi Soy.”
This was not the first time 50 had joined Wisin y Yandel onstage: He teamed up with them last summer at Madison Square Garden for their sold-out show during Puerto Rican Day Parade weekend. They also have plans to work on a track for Wisin y Yandel’s next record.
“We’re working with 50 Cent on a song called ‘Mujeres en el Club,’ ” one of the group’s members said. “It would be a dream come true. Not just for us, but for reggaetón it would be huge.”
The group will be featured on “Unscripted: Wisin y Yandel” February 21 at 2 p.m. on MTV Tr3s.
