50 Cent and EFFEN Vodka Take Over The Shrine Nightclub in Chicago

50 Cent brought his talents to the Windy City on Thursday, July 30, hosting a day full of events throughout the city, concluding with a party at The Shrine night club in the city’s South Loop neighborhood.

Hosting the evening’s festivities, 50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, poured free shots of EFFEN Vodka to wailing fans, hopping over the gated stage giving out free bottles to fans. Jackson’s most popular hits, “P.I.M.P.” and “In Da Club,” blazed speakers as the soundtrack to the night, as fans rapped along every lyric to their favorites, including his 2003 Get Rich or Die Tryin’ track, “What Up Gangsta,” which he briefly performed.

The G-Unit boss man amped the crowd, requesting for Chicago’s hottest local artists, as DJ ibHappy and DJ Mile High responded with hits from King Louie and Spenzo’s “Wife Er.” The Power producer rocked to Future’s “March Madness” and Rico Richie’s “Poppin’,”before Chicago artist Yung Stakks performed.
