50 Cent filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Rick Ross on Wednesday in federal court for sampling his “In Da Club” without permission, according to Vulture. Ross rhymed over the Dr. Dre beat on his free “Renzel Remixes” mixtape. The suit, according to MTV, states Ross unlawfully used 50 Cent’s name and identity to sell his latest album “Black Market.”
“50 Cent’s most valuable asset is the name and reputation he has painstakingly built through his Grammy-winning music, acting, and business endeavors,” a legal rep for 50 told Billboard. “He chooses his projects carefully for the very purpose of protecting that name and reputation.”
50 Cent is seeking $2 million in damages.
50 Cent and Rick Ross’s beef has spanned many years. Fif lost a legal battle against the mother of Rick Ross’ child Livonia Leviston in July. Fif was ordered to pay Leviston an additional $7 million for leaking her sex tape, according to the New York Post.
50 Cent filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection days after.
Ross posted a video mocking 50 Cent for having to pay Leviston.
“P***y n***a, and you better make sure that payment right to baby mama and it better be on time,” Ross said. “The first two been on time. You still about a week late.”
