When you have hits as massive as 50 Cent, you’re going to have fans in all shapes and sizes from all walks of life. As it turns out, one of 50’s biggest fans is a WNBA star with a famous big brother and a legendary mother. Chicago Sky rookie center Imani Boyette was the 10th overall pick in April’s WNBA draft and within a month she began a social media campaign to get 50 out to one of her games.
Now, Imani, daughter of Women’s Basketball Hall of Famer Pamela McGee and sister to NBA player JaVale McGee, is no regular 50 Cent fan. She’s more of a fanatic, whose fandom stretches all the way back one very specific moment of her childhood.
And when Imani got married to Texas Longhorn defensive tackle Paul Boyette Jr, the couple’s first dance was to 50’s “Best Friend,” naturally.
