Rapper Cam'ron (formerly known as Killa Cam) has been sued for copyright infringement after using an image of himself on various merchandise items. Cam's iconic all-pink fit, complete with matching flip phone, was captured by photographer Djamilla Cochran who sued the rapper for repurposing the image without proper licensing. 

With Gen Z's rising infatuation with Y2K tech, it's no wonder that Cam'ron was keen to tap into his younger audience with this retro merch. He'd be excused in thinking he owns the rights to his own face, but now the minor misjudgement has led to a major infringement fine.
