50 Cent Mocks Ashanti After Singer Sells Only 24 Tickets to Back to School Concert

*Rapper 50 Cent finds it quite amusing that Ashanti had to cancel an upcoming concert at Stony Brook University after only selling 24 tickets.

According to The YBF.com, the “Foolish” singer was scheduled to perform at the university’s “Back to the Brook” concert for students, but the show was canceled due to low tickets sales. According to the university, they only sold two dozen tickets out of a total student population of 25,000+.

A student at the school tells The YBF that the concert wasn’t properly promoted and the students may not be Ashanti’s demo.
