50 Cent Settle's Lawsuit Against Taco Bell

Shout out to my girl from TheLoungeReport for tweetin this 'cause I had no idea this was going on. 50 Cent has settled his lawsuit with the popular fast food chain after they used his name in their new campaign they launched early this year.

Without notifying 50, Taco Bell launched a national campaign last year in which they sent letters to the news media that jokingly asked the Queens MC to change his name to “79 Cent,” “89 Cent” or “99 Cent” to promote it’s value meals. Fif wasn’t too pleased about the fast food chain making money off his name without cutting him a check.

Although the exact details of the settlement remain unknown, it was reported that Fif was seeking $4 million in damages. According to the New York Post, both parties reached an agreement that was mutually satisfying.
Daaaamn homie! $4 million in damages for using his name as a joke? 50 does not play when it comes to his chippers! Or his name at that!
