A planned community event featuring rapper 50 Cent was canceled in its entirety out of fears of violence the rap star’s manager has confirmed.
50 Cent had planned to perform and host the event tomorrow (August 30) at PS 40 in Jamaica, Queens but nixed the event.
According to 50 Cent’s manager and Violator CEO Chris Lighty the event may still take place at a later, unconfirmed date. "We are postponing it and working it out with police," Lighty said.
Today (August 29), 50 Cent will play a safe gig at Six Flags Great Adventures in Northern New Jersey.
The rapper, along with vitaminwater, is busing hundreds of children from his old Queens neighborhood to the theme park to attend a fundraising performance for his G-Unity Foundation.
"I am constantly searching for ways to give back to the community that helped create me and contributed to my success," 50 said about today‘s trip. "I can think of no better way to do this than to help improve the lives of the young people that reside there through programs created by my foundation."
