Earlier this month, a report surfaced that claimed an NYPD deputy inspector called for harm against 50 Cent. According to the New York Daily News, commanding officer Emanuel Gonzalez reportedly told his officers to “shoot” the “Many Men” rapper “on sight” if they spotted him at a boxing match in the Bronx that happened last year.
As an internal investigation is underway, 50 Cent took to Instagram to express his concern over this matter. “I’m afraid for my life, I haven’t been able to sleep since I heard of this,” he wrote. “The cops never notified me of the threat. I’m closing all my business in New York. I may have to sue the city.”

In previous reports, Gonzalez allegedly cited an aggravated harassment complaint against the Power executive. The filing stemmed from an instance when Fifty left a “get the strap” comment under an image of a lawsuit involving Gonzalez’s “shakedown” of Love & Lust, a popular club in Brooklyn that’s frequented by Fifty.
In a statement from the Queens native’s representative, Fifty might take legal action. “He is concerned that he was not previously advised of this threat by the NYPD and even more concerned that Gonzalez continues to carry a badge and a gun.”
