50 CENT TARGET

Rolling Stone reports,

Shots were fired in the parking lot of a Jersey City Doubletree Hotel early yesterday morning as rapper 50 Cent (a.k.a. Curtis Jackson) and his entourage arrived.

The rapper fled to the hotel lobby and took cover a few minutes past midnight on Wednesday morning before returning to his SUV limousine and leaving the scene. No one was wounded in the shooting, and none of the shooters have been identified or apprehended.

Now, what’s the world coming to when a rapper can’t chill with his peeps without someone trying to bust a cap in him?
