PHOTOS: 50 Cent's new BFF: Meryl Streep

Kristyn Burtt is an LA-based entertainment reporter who has covered everything from 'Dancing With the Stars' to the Oscars. If she’s not on the red carpet, she’s at home in yoga pants watching Netflix and eating potato chips.

What an unlikely pair these two make! 50 Cent was seen hanging with Meryl Streep at Sunday's Lakers game.

Who knew Meryl Streep was so hip? Apparently, 50 Cent knew as he hung out with the legendary actress at Sunday's Knicks versus Lakers basketball game.

The two sat courtside at Madison Square Garden in New York City. They spent their time laughing, holding hands and having a grand old time together at the NBA game.

To prove how much fun he was having with the three-time Oscar winner, 50 Cent posted several photos during and after the game.

Wearing his New York Jets cap, the rapper was seen smiling next to a jovial Streep. He wrote, "Man I got a good life man lol."

After the game, the 64-year-old hung out with 50 Cent and Lakers player Kobe Bryant. They posed for a more formal photo. The musician captioned the photo, "Best ball KOBE, Best Rap 50,Best Actress Meryl Streep. TOP THAT"

That is pretty hard to top when you have three people who have been at the peak of their industries in their careers. However, things got even more fun — or should we say "gangsta" — when 50 Cent wrote, "Things got a little gangsta. Lol TURN UP, Turn Down for what!"

Fiddy is completely a charmer, but before anyone starts to spread rumors about the odd pairing, Streep's husband, Don Gummer, was there for the entire game. In fact, he was sitting right next to the Devil Wears Prada star, so the actress won't be hitting 50 Cent's next tour anytime soon.

Next up for Streep is the Oscars. She's nominated for her record 18th Academy Award for her role in August: Osage County. We can guess who Fiddy's rooting for.
