Curtis James Jackson, popularly known by his stage name 50 Cent, was fined $1,100US (EC$3,000) for using indecent language during his performance last night at the 20th Annual St. Kitts Music Festival held at Warner Park in Basseterre, St. Kitts.

Also fined the same amount was Bajar Walter, who is said to be 50 Cent’s bodyguard. Like 50 Cent, he was charged for use of indecent language and an additional one for allegedly obstructing an officer while in the process of executing his duties.

According to my sources, prior to taking the stage, 50 Cent and his manager were advised by the police about St. Kitts’ laws concerning the use of indecent language and indicated that they would be obliged to arrest him if he broke the law.   Clearly, St. Kitts authorities are unfamiliar with the “have a baby my me, be a millionaire” rapper! In other words, it doesn’t appear that the money is of much concern to him.

The men plead guilty to the indecent language charges and were ordered to pay the fines, which they did, and they both regained possession of their travel documents.  Following the courthouse appearance, 50 Cent and Walter were hastily whisked away to the airport.

This is not the first time that an American rapper was arrested, charged and fined for using indecent language while performing at the St. Kitts Music Festival.

In June 2003 DMX was charged for use of indecent language; however, in 2014, headline act Rick Ross committed the same offense but no charges were preferred against him.
