50 Cent Back In Court

50 CENT's street cred took a knock THURSDAY, but at least he proved he's fit to be a father, writes THE N.Y. DAILY NEWS. In a bizarre courtroom encounter that most rap stars would dread, FITTY was ordered to take a drug test before a LONG ISLAND judge would give him permission to take his son on vacation.
FITTY complied, the test came back clean and now he's free to take 11-year-old MARQUISE away. The 33-year-old rapper, who once did time for selling crack, was in SUFFOLK COUNTY Court in CENTRAL ISLIP to ask Judge DAVID FREUNDLICH for permission to take the boy on vacation from AUGUST 3rd-12th. FREUNDLICH ordered the quickie drug test -- at the request of the boy's guardian -- and the G-UNIT frontman did not hesitate.
50 Cent's ex-girlfriend and MARQUISE's mother, SHANIQUA TOMPKINS, was also ordered to undergo drug testing. Her results came back positive for opiates, but she blamed it on codeine-laced cough syrup she has been taking.
