Marv Albert And 50 Cent’s Entourage Mix It Up Backstage At Jimmy Kimmel’s Show

albert50-CentSure, Marv Albert’s street cred ain’t what it used to be, but does that mean he needs to start mixing it up with 50 Cent’s posse?

That seems to be what happened backstage at Wednesday’s taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live, when 50 Cent’s entourage didn’t recognize Albert and somehow a rigamarole ensued with words going back and forth.

As Albert arrived, with an entourage of one, TNT public relations specialist Jeff Pomeroy, there was a sudden scuffle when a multitude of 50 Cent protectors seemed unfamiliar with Albert. There was shouting (“It’s Marv Albert,” yelled a Kimmel show guard, a pronouncement that seemed to have no effect on the 50 Cent phalanx.) There were obscenities. A fist or two flying. A “Don’t you put your hands on me” pronouncement.

Damn! I hope this doesn’t develop into some sort of East Coast-West Coast feud. I thought we’ve made it past that sort of shenanigans. And who knew Marv Albert was capable of starting shit like this? I mean, we all knew Albert was a little mouthy, but this is crazy. Let that be a lesson to all up-and-comers trying to make a name for themselves in the broadcasting game. Marv Albert don’t take shit from anyone.

In the end, it seems the misunderstanding was just that – an unfortunate event where cooler heads ultimately prevailed. Albert was a little miffed but no worse for wear as he finally made it to his dressing room, saying “”Did you see that? I thought they were kidding, but then I realized they weren’t.” No word on whether Albert said anything along the lines of “Yo, 50 Cent. Your crew better stop fronting or I’m gonna take y’all DOWWWNTOWN! YES!!”

But it would have been cool if he did.

    50 Cent is supposed to be from New York, and his boys don’t know who Marv Albert is? Fire those chumps immediately, and give Griz and Dot Com a call!
