Yahoo- 50 Cent’s trip to St. Kitts wasn’t your typical celebrity getaway. The “In da Club” rapper found himself in da courthouse after getting arrested for using “indecent language,” which is prohibited by law, during a performance on Saturday night. The 40-year-old performer (real name: Curtis Jackson) headlined the St. Kitts Music Festival. While performing “P.I.M.P.,” 50 — who had been warned not to use profanity, according to TMZ — sang the word “motherf*****” several times in front of 40,000 concertgoers. He was formally arrested and charged for the offense of “making use of indecent language” during his performance, according to the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force. While the Power star initially had to “surrender his travel documents” ahead of a court appearance on Monday, according to police, his rep tells Yahoo that the issue is already resolved — and he’s headed back to the U.S. “Mr. Jackson was only booked to host the show,” explained his spokeswoman, Amanda Ruisi. “When he arrived at the festival, organizers asked him to perform, he obliged, and used the DJ they had there. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the clean version to his tracks, so there were profanities used during his performance. The show was a great success, and he will make sure for future trips to St. Kitts that he leaves the ‘motherf*****s’ in the United States.”
Quick suggestion for the city of St. Kitts here. If you don’t want someone to swear on stage while giving a concert, then don’t let 50 fucking Cent book a show there. They know who he is. They know what his lyrics are. Having 50 Cent come perform at your resort then saying he can’t say “fuck” or curse on stage is basically entrapment. “Hey will you come to our resort and perform? You will? Great! By the way, you’re gonna have to cut out half your lyrics because apparently we’re a bunch of elementary school children. Thanks.” 50 Cent is a gangster rapper*. Cursing is his profession. Book almost anybody else. Tom Petty, Paul McCartney, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen. Pretty much book any old white guy if you don’t want “mother fucking” dropped during a performance. Or Kidz Bop. Think about any time you’ve heard a clean rap song. Think about how mad that made you. That’s how St. Kitts lives all the time.
*One of the best gangster rappers ever imo. Go back and listen to Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. It still holds up and will still make you wanna rob somebody.
