Added: 08 October 2015 | Read 2 times

50 Cent has filed a lawsuit against the law firm Garvey Schubert Barer because he feels like they poorly represented him in his case against Sleek Audio, Business Insider reports. Fif filed the case in Connecticut bankruptcy court on Oct. 6th and is asking for a whopping $75 million. According to documents, the Queens rapper says that the Wall Street law firm did not “employ the requisite knowledge and skill necessary to confront the circumstances of the case.”

In 2010, 50 Cent teamed up with Sleek Audio to launch his own brand of headphones, “Sleek by 50.” When Sleek missed their launch deadline and the headphones didn’t hit the market, 50 went on to start his own headphone company, SMS Audio. In the court documents, the Power producer claims that his lawyers advised him that he would not be infringing on any intellectual rights and that Sleek Audio could not have a case against him. They were wrong.

When Rolling Stone caught up with the STL rep after he got off stage with Taylor Swift, he clarified that that he isn’t exactly doing a full blown project of country music.

“It got kinda twisted,” said the “Country Grammar” rapper. “It’s not actually country, so to speak. I love country music. I respect country music so much that I would never think that I can sit down and just as easy do a country album. That’s not it.
