50 Cent nearly suffered a blow to his tough guy image when someone pulled his chain from his neck at a gig.
But Fiddy- real name Curtis Jackson- jumped into the crowd and got his gold jewellery back at the concert in Africa.
TMZ has a video of the incident which shows a fan jump on stage and grab the chain off the rapper.
According to sources 50 Cent then followed the thief into the audience and punched him.
A G-Unit source was asked what happened at the end and replied: The chain is around 50's neck right now."
