Viral Date: February 2009

At his core, 50 is a showman. So when his beef with Officer Ricky jumped off in early 2009, you already knew he had some tricks up his sleeve. But in a devastatingly diabolical move that no one saw coming, Curtis introduced the world to Tia, Ricky's scored baby's mother. After handling business, he takes Tia and a friend shopping at the Gucci store while "Isn't She Lovely?" plays. PWND. This is beef 2.0, Ross is still in beta.

50 Cent and Tia later posed on the cover of Smooth Magazine together.
