50 Cent, known for poetic lyrics like "you know we don't give a f**k it's not your birthday," was arrested for using indecent language after a performance at the St. Kitts Music Festival in the Caribbean on Saturday night. (A question for the festival organizers: Have you ever listened to a 50 Cent song?)

The 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, and a member of his entourage, Bajar Walter, were "arrested, formally charged and cautioned" for the performance, according a post on the local police force's Facebook page.

According to a statement The Huffington Post obtained from 50 Cent's representation, the word that landed him in trouble was "motherf**king," which he raps in his song, "P.I.M.P."

"Mr. Jackson was only booked to host the show, when he arrived at the festival organizers asked him to perform, he obliged and used the DJ they had there," reads the statement. "Unfortunately, they didn't have the clean version to his tracks, so there were profanities used during his performance. The show was a great success and he will make sure for future trips to St. Kitts that he leaves the 'motherf**kers' in the United States."

Bail for 50 Cent and Walker was set at $5,000, and the pair is ordered to appear in court on Monday.
