50 Cent Tells Story of When He Ran From Police Wearing His Grandmother’s Dress and Wig as a Disguise
50 Cent wasn't always a successful mogul. In fact, the Queens, N.Y. native has shared a story of a time before all his lauded accomplishments when he evaded police.
During an appearance on Lil Wayne's Young Money Radio show on Friday (July 3), 50 revealed that years ago, when he ran from police in his hometown of Queens on his motorcycle, he wore a disguise to do so.
"I run from the police," he began. "Look at this. One time, these niggas chased me on a motorcycle. They thought I killed two girls in Bricktown [Queens], right? [Tony] Yayo will never let me forget this shit, right? I run from these niggas so hard, Wayne, these niggas had helicopters, dogs, everything. Lost them niggas. I got outta there. I had on my grandmother's dress and shit like that, wig and shit."
Fif then says he called to check in with his mom, but she told him not to come home. "I went past, got into a cab and went to Sunrise Movie Theater," he continues. "I call home, I said, 'Ma, everything alright?' She said, 'No, don't you come here.' It was so many muthafuckin’ police around there. She said, 'No, don't you come here.' I said, 'You alright?' She said, 'No, don't you come here.' I said, 'Oh shit, I'm in real trouble.' They was chasing me like I killed two girls in Bricktown. I didn't kill...the bikes came all the same color. The same kind that year, they all had the same fuckin’ combination. So, the nigga looking at me like, he ran so hard. Why did you run so hard?"
In other 50 Cent-related news, the G-Unit Records founder recently called out DJ Clue via Instagram for reportedly refusing to play Pop Smoke's posthumous debut album, Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon.
"This fool @djclue got in his feelings, and said he not playing POP Smoke new joint because he didn’t get the record first," Fif said in an IG caption.
"FUCK YOU CLUE, you don’t mean shit!," he continued. "@funkflex been kicking your ass up and down the street for years you little retard. I done sold 30 million records you think i give a fuck if you play my music is you stupid, is you dumb nigga?" 50 added. "I think you should get punched in the face, i don’t know why, but i’m almost sure you gone get punched in the face. Nothing crazy just a lower case L You know the vibes nigga."
However, DJ Clue refutes 50's claims. Power 105, the radio station Clue spins on, had a Pop Smoke album listening mix planned prior to 50 Cent calling out Clue. He shared the news via Instagram with a photo of the time slots for several DJs, including himself, that would be spinning Pop's music. "We Repping For My Guy @Realpopsmoke All Day On @Power1051 . Including 9pm When I’m Playing The Entire Album Tune In Power1051Fm.Com or Download The @IheartRadio App & Stream It Live 😇 🇵🇦🇵🇦🇵🇦🇵🇦 #TeamPanama P.S.: We Didn’t Wake Up This Morning & Plan This," Clue wrote in the Instagram caption.
Pop's album dropped on Friday and has been projected by Hits Daily Double to move 175,000-195,000 equivalent album units.
