50 Cent should be kissing his lucky G-Unit chain right about the now. The multi-platinum rapper/actor/frustrated thespian just copped a plea that will keep him from doing time for his alleged role in giving his baby mama, Daphne Joy a few love taps.

It was a claim that 50 insisted was false but still saw him lose a bit of credibility in society. Good thing he had a hungry lawyer that saw the lawsuit as brunch.

Reports TMZ, who broke the story:

50 Cent won’t be going to jail after allegedly kicking his baby mama and destroying a bunch of her property during a blowout fight back in June — TMZ has learned, he struck a plea deal to stay out of the slammer.

As we reported, Fiddy was charged with 5 criminal counts following the incident — 1 count of misdemeanor domestic violence, and 4 counts of misdemeanor vandalism (for allegedly causing $7,100 in damage).

He pled not guilty soon after, but the judge still ordered him to stay away from baby mama Daphne Joy — the mother of 50’s second child — and turn in all his guns.

Now, 50’s attorney tells TMZ … the rapper has worked out a deal with prosecutors to get the domestic violence charge DROPPED — agreeing to plead no contest to one count of misdemeanor vandalism instead.

50 was sentenced today to 3 years probation and 30 days of community service. He has also agreed to attend counseling sessions and pay $7,100 in restitution to Daphne.

FYI, the restraining order against 50 Cent is still in effect. It’s unclear if he’s allowed to get his guns back.

Even with the slap on the wrist, there’s still another drawback. What’s a 50 Cent without a gun to rap about?
