50 Tyson: Autistic YouTube star from the Twin Cities [VIDEO]
50 Tyson is the latest viral YouTube phenomenon to emerge from the Twin Cities.
The 16-year-old kid--who really does resemble a cross between 50 Cent and Mike Tyson--has 3.8 million views of his YouTube mirror rap.
Now he is turning his fame into a chance for autism advocacy.
If you haven't seen the video yet, watch this:
There are a lot of great moments in this video. Perhaps the best is when 50 Tyson forgets how old he will be next year and turns it into an opportunity for a remix.
Recently, 50 Tyson got a chance to re-record the song with all the real hip hop trappings. The best part is that 50 Tyson makes the Mall of America look big pimpin'.
Mike Jones made a whole career out of raps like this.
Also: That is the worst spelling of "premiere" that I have ever seen.
