50 Cent is set to make history at the South By Southwest festival in Texas next week (11Mar14) by streaming his concert on a mobile app he has invested in.

The rapper has become a minority owner of Hang w/ and he has been using it to give fans a courtside experience when he attends New York Knicks basketball games - but now he's set to give the new technology a big boost after signing on to broadcast an upcoming show using the app, which has been downloaded more than a million times since it launched a year ago (Mar13).

50 says, "I'm excited to be able to bring my fans behind the scenes and give the opportunity to those who couldn’t make it a chance to experience a concert at South By Southwest."
