50 Cent may lose a lot of change after a run-in with a photographer.

A New York Post shutterbug is suing the rapper for $21 million U.S. after his bodyguards allegedly roughed him up last August, MTV.com reports.

Photographer James Alcorn claims that the Aug. 27 assault, which occurred as Alcorn was taking photos of the rapper leaving a midtown Manhattan jeweler, left him suffering from "severe and serious injuries."

He filed a lawsuit seeking damages against 50 Cent (a.k.a. Curtis Jackson), his record companies -- Interscope, Aftermath and Shady Records -- and seven unnamed security guards.

No criminal charges have been filed, but the New York Police Department's investigation is still ongoing.

Spokespeople for 50 Cent had no comment.

    All that hip-hop, rap etc. all that shit is, when you listen to it, really sexist. I had my sister chanting " Get a bitch in the crib, pump that hoe to the brink, smack her up good nigga!" Has anyone else noticed that these "hard ghetto gangsta's, from da hood" need to apy women to even APPEAR to like them. For shame...
    Fuck all you G-unot faggets he sounds like shit when he plays and the only people at our school who listen to him are faggets.
    hahahahhahahhahahhahhahha hahhahhahhahhahahhahahhah ahhahahh ahhahahahhahahhah ah your right Metalxhed89: rap sux the HUGE dick. havent you noticed that the "god" eminem is a wigger (white nigger)
    Maybe 50 cents is the best rapper, but rap, hip hop and all this shit suck.
    because if u look at wat section its under (GENERAL music news) ull answer ure own stupid question. U can sue any1 for anything in america nowadays
    Why the *** does this have anything to do with ultimate guitar? this site isnt called ultimaite raps.
    this case will get thrown out. its kinda like 'your dog bit me so im suing you... even though u were in Alaska and i broke into your house to tease it' sue the bodyguards not the rapper. idiots.
    I agree with you all. Rap is gay and over-rated, it sucks dick. Despite all th humor around it I ahve to ask "Why is this story on a guitar site?"
    YYYYYAYAAAAA AAAAAYYYYY YYYYY!!!!! stupid ******* 50cent. i'd like to see him down in flames like everyone else here.
    less than that
    Eminem is one of the only rappers i can respect. he has the talent to freestyle really well but the crap he writes for his records is terrible. all he ever talks about anymore is how contraversial he is. i mean when was the last time he did anything controversial?! as for 50 Cent he's a complete and udder tool that the rap idustry or even lower than that Eminem, made to sell records. he's not talented, he's not original, he sounds like a retarded mule but people love him? why? because they're told to he may lose this suit but it's just pocket change to him he'll make it back in no time but eventually people will realize he sucks and will let this damn fad die out
    Dont fukk with Eminem cause he is a great musician but 50 cent is really bad, I think he looks like a bulldog.... And paparazzis diserve to die....
    50 cent sucks ass but that paparazzi faggot pisses me off too they should both be locked up and forced to butt*** each other to death
    since he has money i think its safe to say that bastard will be ok
    if they killed him the first seven times....wouldn't have this problem
    all you dumb asses who say rap is stupid or whatever obiously have a bad taste in music, its all the same, beats, and lyrics, it all originated from the same roots. go ahead and keep putting rap down, put any kind of genre down, it just shows that you have no respect for music. start posting comments about something pertaining to the news page posted here, and not take every opritunity to call rap stupid avilable to you.
