On Saturday, 50 was thrown behind bars after using profanity on stage during a festival performance in St. Kitts. According to reports, the “Power” star/producer was warned before going on stage to NOT say any curse words while performing before the 40,000 people gathered at the festival. But he let the word “motherf***** slip, and they don’t play that on the island.
The 40-year rapper was charged with making use of indecent language as it is against the law to use profane language in public places on the island. However, his rep Amanda Ruisi said it wasn’t totally his fault.
Apparently, he was due to just host the event, but he was asked to perform at the last minute. He decided to go ahead and perform, despite not having his own DJ with him. The DJ there didn’t have a clean version of his tracks, so profanities blared through the speakers during his performance. His rep told the IB Times UK, “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."
He appeared before court and was released on an $1,800 fine, but 50 found the situation amusing. He hopped on Instagram, posting a picture of his “Power" character Kanan in prison gear:
