The controversial free Family Day concert scheduled for tomorrow inside a Jamaica public schoolyard, organized by 50 Cent, has been postponed. 50 was originally supposed to put on a secret performance, but was downgraded to just making an appearance after fears arose of chaos or violence at the site close to where the rapper was shot multiple times in 2000. His manager told the Post, "We are postponing it and working it out with police." After Mayor Bloomberg got involved and made a point that 50 would not be performing, the rapper Q-Tip recently spoke out against the mayor and has been tweeting to his followers, telling them not to re-elect the mayor and saying that the idea that the concert would invite violence was "just an old way of thinking about folk, especially black folk. Tip told MTV, "[Bloomberg is] not right for the spirit of the city. 50 Cent is a success story we all should applaud. However you feel about him, you can't deny him." Maybe the show's sponsor, Bette Midler's New York Restoration Project, can just convince 50 to adopt-a-highway, putting the G-Unit back into the Gowanus Expressway.
