As night fell, crowds gathered inside H-Town’s NRG Stadium to see the night’s performer, artist and media mogul 50 Cent. As you’re probably aware, 50 recently made H-Town his new home and has been making his mark on The Lone Star State ever since.

In addition to running through many of his classic hits like “Candy Shop,” “21 Questions,” and “In Da Club,” his show also featured guest appearances by DaBaby, Jeremih and of Tony Yayo  of G-Unit and Uncle Murda.

Leading up to the show, students from Houston’s Jack Yates High School gave the audience a rocking performance as 50 and his crew prepared to take the stage.

This wasn’t Jeremih’s first time hitting the stage with 50 Cent in Houston. In 2023, he joined the rapper at The Toyota Center as part of 50’s Final Lap Tour. The event celebrated the 20th anniversary of Fif’s debut album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, which was released in February 2003.
