He also has some cautionary words for Aziz Ansari

50 Cent took part in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session yesterday, looking to promote his new album "Street King Immortal." But of course, Fiddy's gloriously bad first pitch at the New York Mets' Citi Field last week was what the internet had on its collective mind.

"What happened on that pitch?" asked one user unsurprisingly. What was surprising was 50 Cent's explicitly specific response: "I have a skeletal muscle injury on my left shoulder from excessive masturbation so take it easy lol"

"Curtis Jacks-on" puns ensued and one user joked about how Fiddy could have been coaxed by his team into giving a very Reddit-friendly reponse: "reddit will hound you about the pitch, make a joke about jerking off or cats and you'll be fine Mr. Fiddy"

This isn't the first time 50 Cent has spoken very frankly about masturbation. Back in 2012, he declared via Twitter, "Masturbation is a sin you stop right now fool!!! lol God is watching you#SMS." He proceeded to offer a four-step plan to quitting, which included avoiding porn sites, strip clubs, staring at people walking by and "lust filled magazines."

Outside of "too much information' territory, Fiddy admitted he could bench up to 405 at his peak before slimming down to avoid "looking like security." He also addressed a popular Aziz Ansari routine, in which the comedian claims 50 Cent doesn't know what a grapefruit is.

"My grandma used to get me grapefruit juice as a kid," the rapper says, finally setting the record straight. "He's a comedian. Ima have his ass whoop if he keeps saying that lol."
