NEW YORK - Rapper 50 Cent, whose hits include "Wanksta," was arrested Tuesday morning after police found two guns inside a car parked outside a Manhattan nightclub, authorities said.

The 27-year-old, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was arrested just before 2 a.m. after the sport utility vehicle he was riding in was found parked in a no-standing zone outside the Copacabana nightclub, police said.

Officers then conducted a search of the car because it had tinted windows, police said.

Police found a .25-caliber handgun and a .45-caliber pistol, said Sgt. Mike Wysokowski, a police department spokesman. Police said both weapons were loaded.

50 Cent and the four men with him were each charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

The rapper's lawyer could not be reached by telephone for comment.

50 Cent was discovered by Run-DMC's Jam Master Jay, whose real name is Jason Mizell. After the Oct. 30 execution slaying of Mizell, investigators learned of a threat to 50 Cent; at their suggestion, the rapper canceled a performance.

Police later downplayed any suggestion that Jam Master Jay's killers were after 50 Cent.

The Jam Master Jay shooting is still unsolved.

John Mangan, the promoter for 50 Cent's scheduled performance at the nightclub, said the police search was unjustified.

"I think they're trying to get him ... to connect him to things that he has nothing to do with," Mangan said.

50 Cent's vehicle "was parked outside the club for no longer than two minutes, and as he was getting out of the car to go inside the police came up and stopped him and told him to get back in the car and go around the corner, where they searched the car," said Mangan.

Eminem (news - web sites) has been helping 50 Cent in his career, and his song "Wanksta" is on Eminem's multiplatinum "8 Mile" soundtrack.

Yeah, but then again..

50 got enough enemies - both in the streets & other rappers..
50 & G-Unit constantly wear bulletproof vests, even on shows & videos, and they drive bulletproof cars.
50 has been shot several times before, so they got a reason to.

And as 50 said himself: "You wear a vest without a gat, youz a target nigga"
They obviously need protection, and I don't think 50 would be allowed to have guns with his track-record..
The solution is probably bodyguards..
