50 Cent files lawsuit against Czar Ent. over original 50 Cents DVD
A lawsuit filed by rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson may put the brakes on an edition of The Infamous Times, a popular biographical DVD series that explores the seedier side of street life.
In a lawsuit filed yesterday (May 31), Jackson alleges that three video production companies used footage from a free interview he conducted with Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond's Czar Entertainment.
"This lawsuit has no merit," Rosemond told AllHipHop.com. "50 Cent agreed to do the interview and he knew this DVD was coming."
