50 Cent Faces Felony Battery Charges For Mic-Throwing Incident
50 Cent could face battery charges after throwing a microphone that hit a woman during a concert in Los Angeles.
In a recent incident at a concert, rapper 50 Cent may potentially face battery charges after throwing a microphone that hit a woman, causing a bloody gash on her forehead. The woman, Bryhana Monegain, filed a police report the night of the incident. Law enforcement sources believe that 50 Cent intentionally threw the mic at his crew in the production area and hit Monegain. She claimed that 50 Cent looked directly at her before throwing the mic, indicating that he knew she was there.
However, 50 Cent's lawyer, Scott Leemon, denies the allegations, stating that his client would never intentionally harm anyone with a microphone. Leemon asserts that those making such claims are misinformed and do not have all the facts.
The incident occurred during 50 Cent's performance at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles as part of his Final Lap Tour. The rapper grew frustrated with broken microphones being handed to him and became visibly agitated. In videos and photos captured by The Neighborhood Talk, 50 Cent can be seen aggressively throwing the broken mics into the crowd on two separate occasions, with one of them hitting Monegain.
Upon hearing the news, 50 Cent's longtime rival, The Game, took to his Instagram Story to criticize the rapper, accusing him of hitting women and referring to him as "Curtis yo fat ass." Despite this negative moment, there was also a positive highlight from the show when 50 Cent brought out Nas as a special guest, much to the delight of the crowd. Nas praised 50 Cent for his impact on the rap game with his debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin', and expressed his love for his fellow Queens natives, Tony Yayo and Uncle Murda.
This performance with Nas comes after 50 Cent and Nas recently collaborated on the song "Office Hours" from Nas' Magic 2 album. This collaboration marks their first in over 20 years, having previously worked together on tracks such as "Too Hot" and "Who U Rep With" from 50 Cent's Guess Who's Back? mixtape.
In conclusion, 50 Cent's mic-throwing incident has raised concerns of potential battery charges, with the victim filing a police report. While the rapper denies any intentional harm, the incident has sparked controversy and commentary from his rivals. However, there was also a positive moment during the concert when 50 Cent brought out Nas as a special guest, highlighting their recent collaboration and celebrating their shared roots in Queens.
