50 Cent and his entourage were questioned about gunfire at a Jersey City hotel yesterday. The police have not confirmed that 50 Cent was one of the people involved in the incident at the DoubleTree Hotel, but shellcasings from a .45 automatic and a .40 firearm were found. WNBC reminds Gothamist about 50's background: "The 27-year-old 50 Cent, who often wears a bulletproof vest, has been shot nine times and stabbed. Born to a teenage mother who dealt drugs and was killed when he was 8, he started dealing drugs before he was a teenager."

Hmm. The Kevlar vest for his young son is a good idea, but maybe 50 needs to ride in a Pope-mobile.
