50 Cent, the rapper who most recently made headlines for going into massive debt and having to file for bankruptcy, has quite a way with humor. In light of news that MTV’s ‘Cribs’ will be revived via Snapchat, the rapper teamed up with a travel site to parody both the show and his financial struggles.

And that, ladies and gents, is how we get to 50 Cent giving you a tour of Hostelworld.

Depending on your brand of humor, you might find the video silly or cringeworthy. The rapper takes you through the 8-person shared room (calling it “tour bus style) and the “club” which is just the common area by the lobby. No vertical videos, Snapchat-style here though.

If you ever watched ‘Cribs’ when it was on the air, the nostalgia is there – except for the irony that some of the stuff shown on 50 Cent’s real episode of ‘Cribs’ were allegedly never really his. Gotta at least give him credit for being able to make fun of himself, though.
