US rap artist pleads guilty before a St Kitts court

American rap star Curtis”50 Cent” Jackson and his bodyguard Bajar Walter pleaded guilty to the charge of using indecent language before the Basseterre Magistrate court at an unusual sitting today.

The two men were arrested last night after the repeated use of profanity during Jackson’s hour-long performance at the St Kitts Music Festival. The use of obscene language in public places is against the law in St Kitts/Nevis.


Walter was also slapped with an additional charge of obstruction of justice.

The courthouse, normally closed on weekends, opened at noon for the trial since 50 Cent was scheduled to fly out of the country at 2 p.m. to attend the BET Awards tonight in Los Angeles.

The men who were initially released on EC$5000 bail in the wee hours of this morning, were each fined $3000 EC at this afternoon’s hearing.

The money was paid forthwith and the men were released.

The second charge against Walter was dropped.

    Petty? Because the country has high standards and does not tolerate foul mouthed international entertainers. I think not.

      Oh shush! If you know how backwards some of these countries in the Caribbean really are, you would quickly reconsider your ill-uttered comment.

    We all have a right to free-speech whether socially unacceptable or not, so long as that speech doesn’t threat the safety and security of anyone, it ought to be allow. The entire concept of free-speech is the very essence of which the idea of democracy has been erected upon. You take away that right and democray as we have grown to know it is going to fall apart right before our eyes.

    He should have blistered them all in cuss. 50’s songs are 98% cuss words. They had no right bringing him there in the first place. Clowns

    St. Kitts has one of the highest murder rates in the world. You would think they would focus their limited police resources on violent crime instead of trivial matters such as this.

    Are our laws on our books any different than theirs?

    @Dexter Israel!!!!! That is your Opinion, that is a Law, where is the Pettyness ??? are you aware that, the Same Law Exists in Barbados,Jamaica, T&T, and perhaps some of the other W.I Islands ????

    Your Attitude about the Islands of the Caribbean seem to Suck.

    They knew full well the content of his songs. But, the law is the law

    What a waste of the Court’s time.

    50 Cent is known for his explicit language in all of his live performances.

    Nonsense justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
