Rap Superstar 50 Cents is promising to leave the “MotherF@#$%kers” out of his future trips to the idyllic Caribbean Paradise of St. Kitts. This after the Rap Star and Producer of the Starz Hit “Power” was arrested over the weekend after a performance at the annual St.Kitts Music Festival. Curtis “50 Cents” Jackson was there mainly to promote his Effen Vodka and headline the Annual Music Festival which was celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary.
The Island’s main stadium was packed to capacity with almost 10,000 persons who came out to see the Rap Icon. Before his performance Jackson was warned that the use of profanity on a public stage was against the law. 50 Cent gave his word that his performance would be profanity free despite not having the clean version of his set for the DJ. The first half of his performance was largely profanity free however as the crowd got more excited as the performance went on Jackson no doubt fed off the energy and let fly a few words of profanity which delighted his fans and the large crowd. Despite a fantastic performance his profanity did not sit well with the St.Kitts Police who had warned him before hand. They arrested the 40 year old rapper and charged him with the offense. He spent less than 2 hours in police custody and was released to face trial the following day where he was charged a simple fine of less than US$1000.
50 Cents told the media “The show was a great success and I will make sure for future trips to St. Kitts that I leave the ‘motherf–ks’ in the United States.”
50 Cent made light of the arrest the following day, with a picture of him in jail with the caption: “What you in 4 MURDER? all I said was motherf**ker. LMAO.”
The 40-year-old rapper posted bail in the amount of $1,800 and headed back to the United States Sunday morning.
