An aviation company that hosted a party featuring 50 Cent during Super Bowl Weekend has been evicted from their airport hanger at the Albert Whitted Airport.
According to reports, city officials have axed the lease of a St. Petersburg, Florida company called Sky Addict Aviation for breaking the city’s COVID-19 laws.
Sky Addict Aviation leased a 3,000 hangar from the city-owned airport. But the company’s rental agreement was terminated over a large crowd of maskless 50 Cent fans, who paid big bucks to get a glimpse of the rapper on February 5th, during Super Bowl weekend.
“This isn’t how we should be celebrating the Super Bowl,” Mayor Kriseman fumed after seeing the pictures. “It’s not safe or smart. It’s stupid. We’re going to take a very close look at this, and it may end up costing someone a lot more than 50 cent.”
And Mayor Kriseman was not issuing idle threats. He blasted Sky Addiction Aviation while doing his best to avoid a war with 50 Cent.

“My feud wasn’t necessarily with him. He’s a performer, he showed up to perform,” Mayor Kriseman told the St. Petersburg Catalyst. “It’s with the folks who put the event on and the fact that the event happened with no apparent safety precautions taken, nothing done to keep the performers or the people there to see it safe, that violated the city’s order for events.”
According to Mayor Kriseman Sky Addiction Aviation has 6 months to vacate the Albert Whitted Airport.
