Fast food giant Taco Bell has agreed to pay 50 Cent $1 million to avoid a lawsuit filed by the rapper last year.

Fif sued the company for the illegal use of his name and image in promotional material after they referred to him directly in an advertisement. In the ad, a spokesperson encourages the rapper to change his name to "79 Cent," "89 Cent" or "99 Cent."

50's lawyer, Peter Raymond, said that the rapper and Taco Bell have since come to an agreement that "both parties are satisfied" with.

"We know that you adopted the name 50 Cent years ago as a metaphor for change," the commercial in question stated. "We at Taco Bell are also huge advocates for change. We encourage you to 'Think Outside the Bun' and hope you accept our offer."

According to the 50 Cent, the unauthorized use of his name can get "uncomfortable at some point, especially when corporations do it to you."
