G-Unit general 50 Cent has reportedly been hit with a new lawsuit that claims he stole the instrumental for his "I Get Money" single, off his 2007 "Curtis" album. Details on the lawsuit hit the net late last night (December 15th).
Lawyers for Tyrone Simmons, an Atlanta rapper who goes by "Caliber," filed a copyright infringement lawsuit Wednesday in federal court in Brooklyn. The lawsuit names 50 Cent, along with the producer who created the instrumental beat for the 2007 hit song, "I Get Money," and a host of music industry companies. The lawsuit seeks damages and says Simmons had bought exclusive rights to the instrumental track, and that 50 Cent and others infringed on his rights by using it. A representative for 50 Cent's record company declined comment. Contact information for the producer could not be found. (Associated Press)
