The rapper 50 Cent has canceled a “Family Day” fair he had planned in his old Queens neighborhood amid police concerns about security for the event.

The fair had been planned for Sunday at a school yard in the borough’s Jamaica section, blocks from a spot where the rapper was shot and wounded in 2000.

The musician’s manager, Chris Lighty, says the event is being postponed while organizers work out new arrangements with police.

Authorities had been worried about whether they would have enough officers on hand to deal with crowds and keep the peace, especially if the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, performed.
