Two years ago, in his standup special Dangerously Delicious, Aziz Ansari shared the following anecdote about 50 Cent not knowing what a grapefruit is.
Rumors of 50’s fruit-ignorance have since persisted, but he finally put the matter to bed during a Reddit AMA yesterday in celebration of his new album Animal Ambition. Here’s the official word from Curtis himself:
my grandma used to get me grapefruit juice as a kid. he’s a comedian. Ima have his ass whoop if he keeps saying that lol
Technically, he’s not denying Ansari’s story so much as threatening Ansari, tempered with a courteous “lol.” But the spirit of the message is clear: 50 Cent knows what a grapefruit is.
