Rapper 50 Cent sues Bradenton company Sleek Audio over headphone deal
Gangsta rapper 50 Cent has a beef with a Bradenton company.
The hip-hop heavyweight has sued Sleek Audio LLC for a $285,000 promissory note he loaned the company in April 2010, which remains unpaid, court records show.
The partnership originally resulted in the "Sleek by 50" wireless headphones that were announced at the 2011 CES convention in Las Vegas and written about in Rolling Stone Magazine and other national publications.
