Rapper 50cent forced to perform and broke the ethical laws in St. Kitts, Nevis, and they arrested him. WTF!

It may be time for US rappers to avoid performances in some Caribbean countries, in this case St. Kitts, because they use archaic British laws to arrest the artists on 'trumped up' charges, and in essence, extort money from them.

U.S. rapper 50 Cent and Bajar Walter, a member of his entourage were detained in St. Kitts and Nevis for using "indecent language" during a performance at a music festival.

A representative for U.S. rapper 50 Cent says he's paid a fine and is on his way home after he and a member of his entourage were detained in St. Kitts and Nevis for using "indecent language" during a performance at a music festival. 50cent was invited to host the festival, but while there, he was pressured to perform. His music is well known to include expletives, so it was expected to be used in his performance. With that knowledge, it's more like he was setup to fall. He was not notified of the law before being FORCED to perform.

The Caribbean island still has censorship laws as established by white British rule, in place to oppress and arrest the African expats by the hundreds. Under the country's Small Charges Act, it is a misdemeanor offense to use profane words in any public place in this former British colony of around 40,000 people. An offender could be sent to jail depending on how serious the violation is considered to be.

50cent now joins Rapper DMX who also was arrested in St. Kitts for using profanity during a concert in 2003.
