Despite last month's security complications and scheduling conflicts, 50 Cent has announced plans to repeat his Family Day concert in Queens, New York next year.
Fif promised that next year's show would not suffer the same scheduling issues.
"I ain't never seen this before, that's the motherf*cking police, you see them up there, now everybody wave," 50 told fans during the Saturday (September 26) celebration. "You might as well come down and party with us, because we're not giong to be doing anything else... I see a lot of familiar faces I ain't seen in awhile. Next year I'm gonna get to do it on the actual date that I want, when they see this as a successful event they won't give me such a hard time next time." (New York Daily News)
50's rescheduled Family Day took place over the weekend with performances by G-Unit and others.
Over 2,500 people came to the yard by P.S. 40, according to security officials for the 50 Cent/ G-Unit-sponsored event. No heavy prior promotion was made. A few flyers were passed out on Friday, but most of the traffic for the event was due to word of mouth. Even Lloyd Banks said he didn't know about the function until about 3 a.m. on Saturday, when he received a text message from someone in their organization telling him to show up. Papoose and Cormega also came out to support the event, and unsigned Queens rapper Trav opened up the show. (MTV)
50 Cent previously aired out his issues against the New York police about last month's canceled event.
"I was trying to do something good," Fif told the crowd at a Great Adventures concert. "So as a kid, I wanted to make something for the kids and allow them to have that experience. Now check this out, when I try to do it in the hood, like everybody else would do in the hood -- they say 'No 50, don't be in the hood.' Y'all seen me come through, but all of them don't get to see me when I come through, right? So when I come through, and then they be like, 'We don't see 50.' And usually you don't see me because I'm somewhere where I'm not trying to be seen -- but I wanna show y'all something. Look over there, the top over there, that's the motherf*cking police. Those motherf*ckers follow me everywhere I go. And you know why? 'Cause I'm from Southside." (iStatus Clothing)
The rapper is also holding his ThisIs50 Festival next weekend in New York City.
"Hey, what's up, it's your boy 50 Cent right here," he said in a video. "It's going down October 3rd, Governor's Island. It's gonna be mad people there. It's gonna be -- they didn't let me do Summer Jam so I'm doing my own Summer Jam. You know what I'm saying? I don't wanna say Maino's gonna be there, I don't wanna Uncle Murda is gonna be there, I don't wanna say Cory Gunz, I don't wanna say Ron Browz, none of that. I don't wanna say Dipset, I don't wanna say D-Block, I don't wanna say none of that. I just wanna keep it real low-key like and just let you know you need to be on Governor's Island October 3rd."
