The hip-hop mogul watched one man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, which is running in New York until August 12, and he was moved to tears of happiness by the performance.
The play, directed by Academy Award nominee Spike Lee, details Tyson's life experiences, career as a heavyweight boxer, his time in prison for a rape conviction and his battle with drug addiction.
50 Cent was so impressed with the sportsman's on-stage performance, he took to his Twitter.com page to urge his fans to buy tickets to the show.
He writes in a series of messages, "I'm buggin right now. I went to see Mike Tyson show on Broadway. Man Mike (sic) show was so good you have to see it. Spike Lee did a (sic) amazing job. I was crying he was so funny. If your (sic) not a regular Broadway play fan you still have to go see it. The show was sold out there wasn't one empty seat. I had a great time you have to see this I can't explain it."
