Rapper 50 Cent is known for beefing with other rappers, but now he’s apparently got serious beef with an NYPD officer.
The G-Unit leader took to Twitter on Sunday to respond to allegations first published by the New York Daily News about an investigation the NYPD is conducting into Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez. The commander of the city’s 72nd precinct in Brooklyn allegedly told officers to shoot 50 Cent “on sight” during a roll call in the station house last June.
“This is how I wake up this morning. This guy Emanuel Gonzales is a dirty cop abusing his POWER. The sad part is this man still has a badge and a gun,” 50 Cent said in a tweet on Sunday. “I take this threat very seriously and I’m consulting with my legal counsel regarding my options moving forward.”

Roy Richter, president of the NYPD Captains Endowment Association, claims the allegations against Gonzalez are “completely false” and blamed 50 Cent for escalating the situation.
“It was 50 Cent who put the safety of the Inspector and his family in jeopardy by publishing a threatening tweet that called for violence last year,” Richter told CNN.
