Rappers 50 Cent & Snoop Dogg have come under fire in a new ad campaign against the degradation of women.
Chicago-based church The Faith Community of Saint Sabina has attacked ten of the most popular rap artists in the US for "demean(ing) women and perpetuat(ing) violence," according to AllHipHop.com.
The group has put up twenty billboards throughout Chicago urging people to "stop listening to trash".
Reverend Michael Pfleger says, "If we are going to end the violence and the disrespect of women, we must fight every form of negativity, including the music industry."
Other "negative rappers" targeted in the campaign include Nelly and Ludacris.
