50 Cent was charged with domestic violence and vandalism after an alleged altercation with the mother of his child in Los Angeles this week, but the 37-year-old rapper defiantly took to his Twitter page Friday to brag about not being behind bars and to share what he might bring with him if he winds up there.

In a series of GPS-style tweets, the rapper, whose real name is Curtis James jackson III, posted all of the different places he is instead of jail.

The Grammy-winning rapper is charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence and four counts of violence, Reuters reported.

According to charges filed by the L.A. City Attorney's Office on Wednesday, 50 Cent and his ex-girlfriend were arguing on June 23 and things escalated. When she locked herself in the bedroom, he kicked down the door and caused an unspecified injury. Police estimate he destroyed $7,100 worth of property in her condominium, including furniture, a chandelier, a television set, and a lamp, a spokesman for the city attorney's office said. The musician left the condo before police arrived.

The city attorney's office is not disclosing the name of the victim but described her as 50 Cent's former girlfriend.

His attorney, Scott Leemon, told E! News in a statement: "Curtis Jackson (50 Cent's real name) denies these allegations as made against him."

50 Cent has sold 20 million albums worldwide and starred in the 2005 semi-autobiographical film, "Get Rich or Die Tryin'." He will appear in the upcoming crime-thriller "The Frozen Ground," which stars Nicolas Cage and John Cusack.

The rapper will be arraigned on July 22 in Los Angeles Superior Court and faces a maximum penalty of five years in jail and $46,000 in fines if convicted on all counts.

If he ends up in jail, he knows what he's taking with him:


And he'll definitely have plenty of time for this:
