An Australian street artist has reignited his feud with 50 Cent after painting a giant mural of the rapper's image combined with that of pop star Taylor Swift.
Melbourne-based graffitist Lushsux, who has been described as Australia's answer to Banksy, took aim at the rapper on Thursday with the unveiling of his latest work of art, 'Swifty Cent.'
The giant mural, painted somewhere in Melbourne, shows the American rapper's face painted onto Taylor Swift's head.
'Smash or pass? I might turn 50 week into 50 month and turn this war on 50 into some Iraq type quagmire', the artist said in an Instagram post.
