Great news for Carly Rae Jepsen: She’s no longer responsible for the worst celebrity first pitch ever.

That honor now goes to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, courtesy of Tuesday night’s New York Mets-Pittsburgh Pirates game. Jackson wound up tossing the ball crookedly, to the area between home and first base. As the announcer for one station noted, “It’s good. He never [had to choose] between playing for the Mets and being a rapper.”

A laughing Jackson took it all in stride: While the pitch may not have met his pre-game Twitter promise of “This is gonna be good,” at least he’ll have his 14 Grammy nominations to fall back on.

Watch Curtis attempt to make the pitch (or die trying) below:
