(AllHipHop News) Last night XXL held its annual Freshman Class concert in New York City. Unfortunately, the night was not all about celebration. G-Unit member Kidd Kidd was arrested at the event.
While Kidd Kidd was taken into custody, his boss 50 Cent showed up on stage to perform. 50 also took the time to let the audience know he would support his artist, and then threw shots at Epic Records executive Sha Money XL for not showing the same love to incarcerated rapper Bobby Shmurda.
“I still don’t exactly know what the charges are [against Kidd Kidd], but I’m gonna get him out. He’ll be out by tomorrow,” 50 told the crowd. “I ain’t like Sha Money. Bobby Shmurda still in the joint. They left the n*gga in the jailhouse.”
Shmurda has been locked up in Rikers Island since his arrest in Manhattan last December. His bail was set at $2 million for charges including gang conspiracy, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment.
“How you gonna have money in your name, and not have money to get a n*gga out?” 50 is also heard saying.
Sha Money recently told Revolt he felt Epic had done a lot to support Bobby, but it is not the company’s responsibility to bail out the “Hot N*gga” rapper.
“With 50, he bailed out [Young] Buck and helped [Tony] Yayo all the time. Those are the boutique labels, where you got that brother that’s there that feels compassion and could do things that’s not as corporate,” said Sha. “It’s not like a social worker. [Epic is] not here to worry about what happens in your private life. Those are the choices you make in your private life.”
