50 Cent with kids at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey

Rapper 50 Cent bused a group of kids and their chaperones to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey Saturday afternoon (Aug 29). Here are a few pics of him posing with some of the kids backstage before his concert in front of the invite-only crowd. In between songs, the Jamaica Queens, NY born and raised rapper thanked everyone for coming out to the Vitaminwater sponsored event.

“I want to thank everyone for getting on the buses and coming out,” 50 stated. “I was trying to do something good. When I was small Great Adventures (Six Flags) was a big thing to me. So I wanted to make sure I brought kids so they could have that same experience.”

The next day, 50 wanted to host a concert in his hometown for “family day,” but the City of New York nixed the plans due to safety concerns. The Six Flags show, however, went on without a hitch and 50 plans to make the benefit an annual event.
