After filing for bankruptcy, it looks like 50 Cent just can’t seem to stay out of court.
The rapper was arrested this weekend on the island of St. Kitts. Why? Because he used curse words during his performance. Apparently, it’s illegal to curse in public on this little island in the West Indies.
50 Cent was using a local DJ to spin tunes for him at the show, but the DJ was not provided with clean versions of his hit songs. So, naturally, there was a lot of swearing going on – as is the case with most uncensored rap tracks.
According to reports, the celebrity MC has already paid the fine and is on his way home. No one knows how much he paid, though. But all things considered, 50 Cent‘s management said that the rapper had a great time at the show and that he can’t wait to play St. Kitts again.
This isn’t the first time something like this happened. In fact, his fellow rapper DMX was also fined for swearing while performing somewhere in the Caribbean. He ended up paying a fine that was just a bit under $400.
Hopefully for 50 Cent and his financial woes, his fine was just as small.
