50 Cent and Lloyd Banks were released from police
custody after they were arrested for gun charges in front of a nightclub in
Manhattan New York early Tuesday (Dec 31) morning.
50 Cent posted $10,000 bond on Tuesday, while
Bank's amount was lower. All of the suspects were released with the exception
of Jean Bernard, who had an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Queens, New
York. The hired driver of the vehicle was not charged.
Shortly before his arrest, 50 Cent claimed that
he wasn't as much trouble as people perceive. "I think people think that
I set out for trouble," he told AllHipHop.com. "But once they get

Looking toward the future, 50 said that signing

“One thing I know for sure is I am content
with myself," he continued. "I see the expectation that people have
