Some of the most famous photos of Tupac Shakur have been stolen and slapped on shirts at a couple popular retail stores, and the photog wants justice … according to a new lawsuit.
Chi Modu, known for his portraits of hip-hop artists, claims a merchandising company used his Pac pics without permission to produce a bunch of apparel. According to the docs … the company then sold the shirts to Urban Outfitters and Macy’s, which sold them to the public … also allegedly without Modu’s consent.
Modu admits he had an agreement with the merchandising company to use his Tupac photos at one time, but it expired in July 2016 … and he says the dirty business came afterward.
The photog wants all the stores’ profits from the shirts, along with damages.
We reached out to Urban and Macy’s … no word back so far.
