50 Cent is so “powerful and strong” that a co-star ended up with a disclosed finger after one of Fiddy’s stunts went awry during filming for The Expendables 4.
The movie’s stunt coordinator, Alan Ng, opened up about the multihyphenate rapper, actor and TV executive during a recent interview, revealing that Fiddy was a natural.
“50 Cent is very powerful and strong so that made it very easy to work with him,’ Ng told Pop Culture.
The experienced director and stunt coordinator explained how he played to the G-unit founder’s strengths to prepare him for his role in the action movie, which features some of the genre’s mainstays, including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, and Randy Couture.
Ng recalled filming a stunt with 50 Cent, which resulted in an injured castmate.
“50 Cent is very powerful and strong, so he like a tank,” NG shared. “He was actually so strong that in one of the scenes, he was supposed to barge into a stunt performer and his strength resulted in the guy going flying and dislocated his finger.”
Thankfully, 50 Cent didn’t do too much damage. “The guy and his finger are ok now of course,” NG said.

The Hip-Hop mogul proved he can troll himself, sharing the movie poster earlier this year.
“WTF did we run out of money? Why my head look like it ain’t connected to my body,” he penned alongside the image back in March. “I bet they are gonna make [Sylvester Stallone] look great. SMH.”
