50 Cent met Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at the airport once and their exchange was less than desirable.
50 Cent expects everyone to be excited to meet him. At the end of the day, he's a legend in the rap game, transitioning smoothly into the world of television and books. However, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is a legend in his own right too. One of the all-time greats for the Los Angeles Lakers, the man has been praised as one of the best basketball players ever.
Standing 7'2", it's not hard to spot the all-time great in the airport. In fact, he sticks out like a sore thumb. 50 Cent walked up to the hooper on a whim one time at the airport and, upon reflecting on their exchange, he's less than pleased about how things turned out.

"Yo i was in the airport one time, i looked i said oh shit that’s Kareem abdujabar," wrote Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson on Instagram. "I went and said what’s up, he looked at me like i was crazy, I said oh shit well fuck you then, you old ass n***a I don’t give a fuck about a sky hook n***a, n***as been trying to kill me shhiiittt fuck you. I was mad i said something to his ass."
Damn, I wonder what caused him to even think of this. Given the current travelling guidelines, it can't have been recent. Did Fiddy just see a picture of Kareem and decide to go off?
