"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", he ranted
50 Cent was kicked off stage during a concert in Atlanta over the weekend for overrunning his set.
Performing at Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash in the Georgia state capital, the 40-year-old rapper took exception to having his sound cut off by organisers. Discovering that his set had elapsed before he was ready to leave the stage, 50 reacted angrily to the decision.
“You mean my time is up?” he said, addressing the Bash’s organisers. “You mean to tell me you motherfuckers is gonna kick me off the stage for T.I. and Jeezy? Fuck this! Fuck it!” 50 then briefly dropped the microphone in protest, before then taking umbrage with the stage manager.
“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,” the New Yorker exclaimed, taking a pause seemingly in protest before continuing. “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.
“It’s too late to hate. You should have hated me in 2003. Now I’m rich as a motherfucker.”

The unfortunate episode will bring back memories of 2004, when 50 Cent performed at Reading Festival in what has since gone down as one of the most infamous UK festival sets of all time. Pelted with bottles from the offset, the rapper and his G-Unit entourage managed to last the minimum 15 minutes needed to fulfil their contractual obligations before leaving the stage under a hail of missiles. Watch footage of that moment below.
50 Cent recently parodied the MTV show Cribs for an advert for hostel accommodation platform Hostelworld. “I’ve travelled the world and have stayed at some of the most insane places but none of them had the same vibe and energy that I found at The Hostel in Barca,” he said in the accompanying press release. “I never knew hostels could be that dope.”
