The Washington Post’s David Segal reviewed the 50 Cent show at the D.C. Armory on Sunday night. He writes of the delayed performance, “What’s keeping 50? Money, apparently. In a bolt-locked room on the Armory’s second floor, Mike Lighty, a representative from Violator, the company that manages 50, and one of this show’s promoters, Von Black, are counting great wads of cash on a small table and wrapping the wads in elastic bands. Both men agree it totals $18,500, and both men agree that the total price for the performance this evening is $30,000. But they differ on the size of the upfront check that 50’s management team was already sent. The dispute boils down to this: Unless Lighty is handed an additional $1,500, Mr. Cent won’t be visiting the D.C. Armory any time soon.”
