The rapper has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, but he sure can't throw.

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at the New York Mets-Pittsburgh Pirates game Tuesday, and the hip-hop star can now add "worst pitch ever" to his long list of accomplishments.

While there is no doubting his musical talents -- he's sold more than 30 million albums globally and has been Grammy-nominated 14 times -- the Get Rich or Die Tryin' rapper has a terrible arm.

Dressed in a pinstriped Mets jersey with "Jackson" and the number "50" emblazoned on the back, his erratic toss at Citi Field was so off-target that it has been speculated that the move was a deliberate attempt to land on SportsCenter's "Not Top 10" list.

Several days earlier, 50 Cent boasted about his ceremonial first pitch on Twitter, saying at the time: "This is gonna be good." He has yet to tweet about his outing.

That can't be said of the rest of the Twitterverse. His first pitch quickly became a viral video by the time the game reached the third inning -- and before either team scored.
