New York rapper 50 Cent sued internet advertising company Traffix Inc. for using his image without permission in the graphic “Shoot the Rapper” ad, which he says promotes violence and threatens his safety.

According to Reuters.com, the lawsuit which was filed on Friday June 20th, 2007, claims “vile, tasteless and despicable” use of 50 Cent’s image was “completely unauthorized” and “quite literally calls for violence against” him.

Fif’s legal team is seeking a minimum of $1 million in damages.
