(New York, NY) – Fifty Cent is under investigation by the New York Police Department for allegedly threatening a cop. The department is looking into an Instagram post in which the rapper tells his followers to “get the strap.” The word “strap” is a slang term for “gun.”
Fifty’s alleged threat is said to be directed at NYPD Deputy Inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez, who is being sued by a Brooklyn, New York hip-hop club for allegedly trying to extort the owner for free gifts. The NYPD says it is looking into possibly charging 50 Cent for misdemeanor aggravated harassment. One of the rapper’s representatives said his post was not intended as a threat against anyone.
