"I'm Not 79-89- nor 99 Cent" say 50

Rapper 50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, is suing Mexican "wanna be" fast food restaurant Taco Bell for allegedly using his image and name in an ad where they asked him to change his "stage name" from 50 Cent to 99 Cent.

50 has turn $.50 into a household name within the younger inner-city communities and now plenty of corporate communities. I would be suing because of the insult - "change my name and to 89 cents. Do you know how much the hip hop community will be laughing?" Apparently, Taco Bell doesn't know; thus why I think 50's really suing. It's for the disrespect. A disrespect that could cost the company 4 million in damages towards Curtis Jackson.

-Sources close to 50 said, "His name is 50 Cent, for short people call him "fifty" if he took on the name 79 Cent, what would people call him? Seventy-nine? It doesn't make sense. If you're not going to get permission to use him, at least make it good whatever you do."

I agree.
