The rapper was performing in St Kitts in the Caribbean on Saturday June 25, when he was booked by police for using profanity during his set. TMZ reports that he had been warned not to curse during his performance but 50 used the word “motherf****r”, which got him taken to the police station by cops, who charged him.
Although it is treated as a minor offence, 50 Cent must remain in the Caribbean until Monday where he will go to court and pay a fine. Meanwhile, 50 recently admitted he posed with fake money to boost his reputation.
The ‘Candy Shop’ hitmaker – who filed for bankruptcy a year ago – defended a number of his social media postings in a court submission filed earlier this year, insisting the images were not indicative of his actual wealth and were only posted to promote EFFEN Vodka and his music.
He stated in the filing: “As a hip-hop artist and entertainer, it is imperative that I continue to project aspirational goals of success in order to preserve my brand and those I represent. “What I say and what I do on social media has a direct impact on my music sales and the viewership on my television shows.”
The money used in several pictures – including one where the rapper spelled out the word ‘Broke’ using the notes – are said to be prop dollars used for music videos and photo shoots.
