He is in Jamaica Hospital in stable condition. 50 Cent, who is 22 years old, was sitting in a parked car with 22 year old associate Alton Brown. An as yet unknown assailant pulled up in a blue GM and fired 9 shots from a 9MM handgun, around 11:22AM.
The victims drove themselves to the hospital, and while 50 Cent’s injuries are not life threatening, he was about to go through surgery late last night. The suspect was a black male in a black short sleeved shirt, with a stocky build.
50 Cent was also assaulted last month in Manhattan where he and members of his group were trying to record his debut album, The Power Of The Dollar, which is slated for a June release. He also stated that he has confirmed beef with Ja Rule, stemming from an incident in Atlanta, where 50 Cent allegedly punched Ja Rule in the face.
