Kanye and 50 Cent check out Mike Tyson's Broadway debut

Mike Tyson's first show on Broadway may be getting lukewarm reviews but it is bringing out rap music's hottest stars— even though the star of the show got a couple of them mixed up during a shoutout during the show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth."

On Tuesday, Kanye West and 50 Cent were among those who came out to the Longacre Theatre to see Tyson bring his life story to the stage.

Even though play is about the former heavyweight boxer's own life, it sounds like he flubbed a few of his lines.

According to the New York Daily News' Gatecrasher, Tyson ad libbed a couple of shoutouts to Fitty and "Puffy"— not Kanye— despite the fact that Diddy was nowhere in the house.

Tyson also took a shot at Fitty— a former drug dealer from the streets of New York— and worked it into the show.  As he talked about his past bouts with substance abuse, Tyson yelled out to the rapper," You know cocaine, right 50?"

After the Spike Lee-directed one-man show was over, Kanye and Fitty went backstage to congratulate Tyson and the director.
