Federal court records show that rapper 50 Cent has been ordered to pay a staggering $16 million to Bradenton earphone manufacturer after a failed partnership..
The Bradenton Herald reports that 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, was ordered to pay Sleek Audio nearly $4.5 million in attorney fees and $11.7 million in damages after a deal to make his own brand of headphones went south.

Have you ever heard the saying, “If it’s too loud, you’re too old!”? The hearing damage that iPods are causing takes that saying to a whole new saying. “You’re too young and it’s too loud!”
I heard this story a long time ago-like 5 years ago, but I think it’s important for you to remember kiddies! You don’t want to be hard of hearing in your prime!
Did you know that your iPod’s volume goes up to a cracking 130 decibels, which is almost the same volume if you were at a loud rock concert?
“Decibel units are the measurements used to express differences in power or intensity between acoustic or electric signals. Sounds that register above 85 decibels are considered a dangerous exposure to the human ear, and can lead to permanent hearing loss over time.”
The study also states that ‘it’s not only about the high volume of sound into your ears, it’s also about the length of time that also increases the damage’.
So kids, turn it down!
