50 Cent Arrested for Using Profanity in St. Kitts
50 Cent was arrested in the Caribbean island of St. Kitts lats night (June 25) for breaking the law by using profanity during a performance.
According to TMZ, 50 performed for a packed crowd of 40,000, and was warned about using profanity, which is apparently a public offense. The G-Unit rapper's DJ didn't have a clean version of the set and Curtis must have forgot the stipulations. One "MF" was all it took.
Cops let 50 finish his performance and arrested and booked him shortly after he stepped off stage. He was charged with using profanity in public. He will have to pay a fine for the minor offense.
This isn't the first time this has happened to an American artist performing in St. Kitts. Back in 2003, DMX was arrested there for cussing during a show as well. He reportedly signed a contract that prohibited him from using dirty language during his set. However, he went no holds barred during the show and was locked up.
Fif's last few shows haven't ended well. He performed at Hot 107.9's Birthday Bash in Atlanta last weekend and refused to leave the stage after his set was cut short. “You mean to tell me you motherfuckers is gonna kick me off the stage for T.I. and Jeezy? Fuck this!” 50 yelled. “I got one minute left. You mean to tell me I can’t have one minute? I’m not leaving, I don’t give a fuck who’s coming up next. I can’t have one minute? Is she the program director? Take my music off your station. I don’t want your motherfuckin’ station no more. We got YouTube.”
