50 Cent Confirms "40 Day" Cancellation

After reports of security concerns by local authorities and controversy about who was set to perform, 50 Cent has decided to pull the plug on his 40 Day community celebration.

50 was scheduled to perform and host the event at PS 40 in Jamaica, Queens today (August 30), but decided to call it quits and schedule it for another time.

"We are postponing it and working it out with police," 50's manager and Violator CEO Chris Lighty said.

Community leaders and local authorities previously voiced their concerns about the performenance, saying 50's past pay present a potential for violence during the event.

Although there will be no concert today, the rapper did bus hundreds of children from his old Queens neighborhood to Six Flags Great Adventure for a day of fun yesterday (August 29).

"I am constantly searching for ways to give back to the community that helped create me and contributed to my success," 50 said about the trip. "I can think of no better way to do this than to help improve the lives of the young people that reside there through programs created by my foundation."
