While hip-hop beefs rarely bother the headlines any more, here’s one which has been generating significant heat in New York of late.

G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo is facing assault charges after he allegedly confronted and hit a 14 year old boy. The teenager is the son of Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond from Czar Entertainment management, a mogul not on the G-Unit gang’s Christmas card list.

The story sprouted legs when the kid claimed that 50 Cent was present at the attack, something vehemently denied by Fiddy’s people.

However, this didn’t stop protestors armed with such banners as “Save Your Children” and “Ban 50 Cent” picketing the offices of 50 Cent and G-Unit’s parent label Universal Music. Civil rights activist Rev Al Sharpton and opportunist Fiddy rival The Game have also entered the fray. The next outing for this circus? A New York courtroom on April 25th.
