50 Cent Planning Free Concert in Queens, Cops in Fear

Jamiaca, Queens-native 50 Cent is secretly planning to put on a free show near his hometown, but authorities and residents fear it will bring violence and gunplay to the neighborhood.

The New York Post reports that the concert will take place near the Queens projects where Fif almost lost his life before signing to Shady/Aftermath. “We can’t control the area,” one law-enforcement source told the paper.

“Someone’s gonna try to make a name for themselves,” another source said. “They’re gonna take a shot at him, and they’re either gonna hit him or they’re gonna miss him and hit some poor, innocent kid or grandmother.”

A slew of police officers will shut down the 20 block radius of the South Jamaica Houses for the performace, which is set to draw in close to 10,000 fans.

The show is scheduled for August 30 at 5:30 p.m. at public elementary school P.S. 40. It will be a part of the neighborhood’s Family Day celebration. –Max G
