Looks like 50 might have to get down and dirty with the folks from Taco Bell who not only sued him but have been trash talking about him at the same time. Wow so they take it to the streets in the corporate world too I guess. The company who has finally responded to a law suit brought against them by 50 and his legal team in June of this year say that Curtis is trying to “burnish his gangsta rapper persona by distorting beyond all recognition a bona fide, good faith offer.The comments stem from a marketing campaign that would see Curtis change his name for one day only to something like 99 cent just to tie in with whatever product they were promoting. The pay back would be 10,000 bucks to a charity of the rappers choice.
But the problem was, all this info leaked to the media before it was presented to 50 and he then sued the company who describe him as a “self-described former drug dealer and hustler.”
