I think he's asking for $4 million so that he can pay all his skanky baby mommas. He is going through some crazy drama with one of his baby momma. He's so old news...guess this is his way of trying to keep his name out there..can't stand rap music anyways

If I am not mistaken, the correct name of the charity is the "Butt Plug Fund". Another one that is in the making is the "Baggy Pants League".

My your comment might be funny if it weren't so ignorant.

Mr. Curtis Jackson has contributed several thousands of dollars to youth foundations throughout his career.

You can fault him for many things...charitable contributions isn't one of them.

Please refrain from contributing to sterotyping.

He only has one "baby momma" to public knowledge & by most accounts is a good father & provider for his one son...many even suggest he should seek custody from the mother who is thought to be unfit & a "gold digger". She thought 1/2 a mil in non-court ordered child support a year too little to raise their son in a house he paid for. He took her to court & the court reduced the amount he pays & ordered her to pay him rent.

Plus those who follow Hip Hop know he doesn't need this to keep his name in the headlines or 4 million for child support.

What was Taco Bell thinking?... 50-Cent?... This creates a HUGE image issue for them. If 50-Cent is going to join their "crew" then the chihuahua is out and needs to be replaced with a couple of fighting Rotweilers, the Drive-Thru needs to be changed to a Driver-By and there's is just no way that anyone is going to eat a taco made from Tony Roma's ribs.
lol ...funny

just a greedy thug! When offered $10,000 and have it go to charity, they got no reply. Now 2 quarters want $4 million, give him nothing.

Why are you trying to defend him? He never took the offer for the name change. Therefore, passing up the chance to give money to his beloved youth charity is low.

Not to mention, suing for 4 million dollars because someone used your name is ridicules. He is a DUMB*A*S*S.

50 Cent is a smart black man, he did not sell-out like me.

To this day everyone laughs at me for peddling Taco Bell in my baggy pants :(

I am so tired of these multi-million dollar artists/actors going "sue-crazy" over any little thing! You people have MORE than enough money to last any regular person a life time! Why do you need another $4 million? Taco Bell should just send him $4 million worth of tacos!

Wow, so many jealous, filthy white, trailer trash talking on this board. If you can't stand that he has more money than your sorry asses ever will in your lifetimes combined, too bad! Losers! And you think that heavy metal is any better than rap, what with all the meth, heroin, cocaine and any other drug you can think of that they are using? You people make me sick.

You make me sick for being so judgmental. Oh wait were not you just Bitching about that. Hmmm hypocritical...ya think? We are not jealous of his money; just think he should not sue someone else over something so petty. Acts like this cause many fights between people. If some were not so selfish, the world would be so much better.

Moreover, in your case...you are a lost cause :)

No fair, Chrissy! You're using logic, reason and a sound argument on her. You're only allowed responses like "Oh, Yeah?" and "Snap!"
