50 Cent Sues Rick Ross Again

Rap and business mogul 50 Cent isn’t giving up on defeating his rival Rick Ross over a lawsuit that was dismissed sometimes back.

50 Cent went to war with Rick Ross for using his 2003’s hit “In Da Club” as a remix on his 2015 mixtape “Renzel Remixes Project.”




50 Cent sued Rick Ross claiming he had no right to use the instrumental, which he used to hawk his 2015 album ‘Black Market’ as an insult to his longtime rival.

In October of 2018, a judge dismissed the lawsuit because 50 Cent does not control the copyright or the master recordings to “In Da Club,” which are owned by Shady Records.

The lawsuit was tossed out of court, but 50’s lawyers have refiled an appeal, asking a judge to reconsider the verdict according to Allhiphop.

In new legal documents, 50 Cent’s lawyers claim Rick Ross, born William Leonard Roberts II, unlawfully exploited Fif’s name and voice by including his hook on the remix.

“Under these circumstances, Mr. Roberts violated Mr. Jackson’s right of publicity, and Mr. Jackson was entitled to summary judgment…”

50’s lawyers say the rapper may not have a case for copyright infringement, but the fact that Rozay shouted out his ‘Black Market’ album six times on his remix to “In Da Club” actually infringes on 50 Cent’s identity.
