BROOKLYN -

Rapper 50 Cent says he’s considering legal action over claims of a threat from an NYPD commanding officer at a Brooklyn precinct.

The New York Daily News reports 50 Cent was scheduled to attend a police-sanctioned boxing match last summer when 72nd Precinct Commanding Officer Emmanuel Gonzalez allegedly told officers to shoot the rapper on sight.

50 Cent tweeted that Gonzalez is a “dirty cop abusing his power.”

The NYPD says the allegations are under internal review.
