QNS. FITTY FEST IS OFF
By CHUCK BENNETT, NY Post
Fitty wasn't going to let anyone party without him.
The foul-mouthed gangsta rapper canceled the entire "Family Day" neighborhood fair he planned over fears that his very appearance would spark violence, his manager said yesterday.
"We are postponing it and working it out with police," said Chris Lighty, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's manager.
The event was scheduled for tomorrow at the PS 40 schoolyard in Jamaica, Queens -- just blocks from the spot Fitty was shot in 2000.
The Post reported on Aug. 17 that cops worried that they lacked the manpower to keep the peace at the event.
Originally, Fitty was going to perform but later said he would just make an appearance. Regardless, cops worried that a punk out to make a name for himself or someone with a grudge might try to shoot him.
