50 Cent and Kobe Bryant hug at Madison Square Garden (GIF)

Curtis Jackson, better known as rapper 50 Cent, was sitting courtside at Madison Square Garden when the New York Knicks hosted the Los Angeles Lakers. 50 Cent was seated next to Oscar winning actress Meryl Streep for what I can imagine was an awkward pairing.

After the game, 50 Cent went and socialized with some of the NBA players. Not his hometown Knicks, he went and said high to Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

Of course he gets to see the Knicks more frequently and the Lakers playing at MSG happens less frequently.
