50 Cent Says He’s Going To Try And Get Cleanthony Early’s ‘Stuff Back’
Knicks second-year forward Cleathony Early was robbed at gunpoint and shot in the leg early this morning in Queens, as we reported earlier. He was riding in an Uber car with his girlfriend at the time, who was not harmed. He's in stable condition at a New York hospital, and the Knicks -- including Carmelo Anthony -- have responded with great concern.
But entertainer 50 Cent is going a step beyond, posting on Instagram that he's going to try and get Early's stuff back.
“They hungry out here man,” 50 Cent wrote on Instagram. “You in the league, you made it, you gotta chill. He only 24, he gonna want to party. I’m a see if I can get his stuff back. Today!”
Wall Street Journal:
Cleanthony Early and his girlfriend left the CityScapes Gentleman’s Club in an Uber car when six men forced the vehicle to pull over around 4:15 a.m. The vehicle was reportedly boxed in when two men wearing black mask pulled Early from the back seat. Both men had semiautomatic guns.
Early was robbed of two gold chains, gold tooth caps, a cell phone and cash before one of the men shot Early in his right knee. Early was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and released later that morning. Early’s girlfriend and the Uber driver were unharmed, although the driver was robbed of his identification.
How much clout does 50 Cent have in the criminal community? Apparently he thinks a lot, and maybe he does. We'll see what happens.
Your move, Spike Lee. If you guys don't come up with anything, we're going to have to go directly to Woody Allen.
Anthony is expected to make a full recovery say reports, among them Yahoo Sports.
Early is expected to face a recovery timetable of two to three months, league sources said, with his week-to-week timetable potentially changing, depending on his rehabilitation.
-- 50 removed the post from his Instagram page, but thanks to a revolutionary new "screen capture" technology, we were actually able to take a picture of it. Crazy, we know.
