Rapper 50 CENT lost his legal battle yesterday (21JUL05) to stop video production companies selling footage from THE INFAMOUS TIMES - VOLUME I: THE ORIGINAL 50 CENT DVD.

A Los Angeles court also denied the hip-hop star - real name CURTIS JACKSON - his demand for details of the DVD's sales.

The CANDY SHOP star, who had filed his lawsuit in May (05), was interviewed by Czar Entertainment Inc boss JIMMY ROSEMOND about KELVIN MARTIN, a New York criminal who also went by the moniker 50 Cent.

The rapper claims he waived his fee for the interview because Czar Entertainment agreed to make a donation to either Martin's family or his charity, the G-UNITY FOUNDATION, which helps boost inner city schools - but the production company failed to honour their charitable promise.

Rosemond recently insisted to website ALLHIPHOP.COM he "never agreed to make and I never will make a donation to 50 Cent's charity".
