The Razz: Hip hop star facing some heavy costs.

A PHOTOGRAPHER who was allegedly assaulted by 50 Cent's bodyguards has slapped the rap superstar with a $21 million lawsuit.

New York Post snapper Jim Alcorn claims he was knocked down by the hulking heavies in August while he was taking pictures of the hip-hop star.

The rapper was leaving Jacob the Jeweler's shop in Manhattan, where he had just bought an $18,000 watch.

Alcorn was rushed to the emergency room after the street-corner confrontation, and hospital X-rays revealed injuries to his neck and jaw.

He says: ``I am bringing this lawsuit because what happened to me was wrong.

``As a result of the injuries received, I was unable to work for nearly eight weeks.''
