50 Cent Sues Over ‘Shoot The Rapper’ Ad

The Associated Press reports filed a $1 million lawsuit against Internet advertising company Traffix Inc. Friday, claiming that the Pearl River, New York, outfit pilfered his image for a banner ad that invites would-be consumers to “Shoot the Rapper” and “win $5,000 or five free ring tones GUARANTEED”—meaning, “Click here, and end up on one of our client’s Websites.” Peter Raymond, a lawyer for the G-Unit mainman tells AP the game doesn’t use 50 Cent’s name, but “it looks like him, and there’s no doubt the character is intended to be him.” The full story at iht.com has since been removed.
