There is some dispute on whether Angelina Jolie was the right choice for the role of Maleficent, after receiving some very stiff competition from 50 Cent on Thursday night. The rapper spoofed Jolie’s film on Jimmy Kimmel Live when he came out as “Malefiftycent.”

50 Cent showed off his best assets, and a few new ones — in the form of the Disney character’s signature horns. He also used his own life experiences to show what he could bring to the character.
“I’ve been shot nine times — I’m not afraid of no little white girl,” he said at one point, referring to his infamous shooting years ago.
He also had a few other select lines that fit with the movie, including, “This s*** just got magical” and “Get witch or die tryin’.”
Although Jolie personifies Maleficent perfectly in the video, 50 Cent definitely gave her a run for her money, thanks to Jimmy Kimmel. The rapper showed his softer side, and that he definitely has a sense of humor when he wants to. During his interview with Kimmel, he also opened up about his wayward pitch during last week’s Mets game.
The ball was sent far to the left of home plate, but 50 Cent laughed that one off as well.
“The worst part was watching the catcher’s face,” he explained.
“One thing you don’t have at the house is a pitcher’s mound,” Kimmel replied, although 50’s mansion does have pretty much everything else, including a nightclub.
