Super Bowl weekend brought a lot of people down to Florida to celebrate. The sporting event was the source of a lot of celebrity endorsed parties taking place in close proximity to the stadium.
Tory Lanez, Rick Ross and French Montana were just a few of the big names present to help fans celebrate America’s favorite pass time. Tom Brady scoring yet another Super Bowl win was definitely cause for celebration for fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Quarterback.
Another famous rapper trying to cash in on the hype this past weekend was 50 Cent. Never one to miss out on an opportunity, he hosted his own Super Bowl bash at the Sky Addict Aviation. The “Power” star performed to a massive crowd of people, hundreds of which appeared to be mask-less. The party was apparently so over the top it caught the attention of St Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman.
“This isn’t how we should be celebrating the Super Bowl.” the Mayor tweeted. “It’s not safe or smart. It’s stupid. We’re going to take a very close look at this, and it may end up costing someone a lot more than 50 cent.” The tweet included a link to TMZ, where more pictures and videos of the event show that the audience was in fact predominately mask-less.

TMZ reported that the event was schedule in the hanger with the goal of social distancing and everyone following protocol. The event started a 9pm and tickets ranged from $85 for general admission to $7k for a stage table. In the pictures, the event was clearly at capacity with many people not wearing masks.
While 50 is no stranger to both attracting and dusting off controversy, the venue on the other hand is not. Sky Addict Aviation is in hot water for hosting the event, and have actually had their lease terminated and given 6 months to vacate the premises. The company has just renewed their lease in December, but now have to leave the 3,000 square foot hangar and office space, leaving employees scrambling to find new jobs.
