This weekend, 50 Cent will take the stage at Hot 97's Summer Jam for the first time in a decade, after his infamous chair throwing incident left him banned for life from the station in 2004. He may be one of the most high-profile, but 50 is far from the only rapper who has been banned from a venue, an event, a radio station, a University, or even a nation, even if reports earlier this week that Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def) was banned from re-entering the United States are most likely untrue
