50 Cent Refuses to Leave Stage After Getting Cut Short During Birthday Bash 2016
50 Cent is the certified king of New York, taking his two-toned Rolls Royce out in the Bronx and watching crowds part like the Red Sea in front of him. Elsewhere though, he has less sway, and during Hot 107.9's Birthday Bash in Atlanta this past weekend, the plug was pulled on Fif before he was ready to relinquish the stage, resulting in a Mexican standoff with 50 refusing to budge.
“You mean to tell me you motherfuckers is gonna kick me off the stage for T.I. and Jeezy? Fuck this!” 50 yelled. “I got one minute left. You mean to tell me I can’t have one minute? I’m not leaving, I don’t give a fuck who’s coming up next. I can’t have one minute? Is she the program director? Take my music off your station. I don’t want your motherfuckin’ station no more. We got YouTube.”
50 then says he won't leave the stage unless they play the record of his choosing, the Queens-bred bully getting his one way or the other. "It's too late to hate," he tells the crowd. "You should've hated on me in 2003."
While 50 isn't one to avoid confrontation or making new enemies, it would seem that all he was asking for was his full allotment of time at the show. Large-scale bills need precision and cooperation to run on time, but upsetting 50 Cent just seems like a bad idea, particularly when he has a microphone in his hand. Watch the on-stage friction happen live in the video up above.
