A talent agent claims a chart-topping rapper was a no-show for her event in a Chelsea club just because she's a woman - and she's filed a $7.5 million civil-rights suit quoting his misogynistic lyrics to prove her case.

The suit says Shawn Mims, who performs under just his last name, blew off the deal "because of his discriminatory attitude" toward women. He was to perform for 10 minutes for $10,000 April 5 at Eugene, on West 24th Street. Marquitta Blair, 22, said she sent him a $2,500 down payment via his agent.

Blair's suit, filed in Rockland County, says Mims "has promoted and traded upon a pattern of conduct involving the belittlement and degradation of females as 'bitches' and 'hoes.' "
