50 Cent Launches Legal Battle Against Rick Ross

Rick Ross may soon find himself "In Da Court" as he has been accused of unauthorized use of 50 Cent's "In Da Club" beat on the #RenzelRemixes mixtape which was reportedly released to promote his Black Market album.

50 Cent filed a lawsuit against Ross on Wednesday (December 23rd), according to Billboard which published a statement from 50 Cent's attorney Paul LiCalsi that was supplied to them by the rapper's publicist.

"50 Cent's most valuable asset is the name and reputation he has painstakingly built through his Grammy-winning music, acting, and business endeavors," said LiCalsi in the statement. "He chooses his projects carefully for the very purpose of protecting that name and reputation."

LiCalsi goes on to explain the reason for the lawsuit, "Our complaint alleges that Rick Ross has taken these without permission to advertise his own album, and violated 50 Cent's rights in the process, and we believe he should be held liable." Read the full report for more details here.
