50 Cent Files $2 Million Lawsuit Against Rick Ross

The beef continues…

50 Cent has slapped Rick Ross with a $2 million lawsuit accusing his foe of using his 2003 smash record, “In Da Club,” to promote his new album.

Via The Wall Street Journal:

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court in Connecticut, lawyers for 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, sued Mr. Ross, real name William Leonard Roberts II, for unlawfully using 50 Cent’s name and identity solely to advertise his own album, “Black Market.”

Mr. Jackson’s lawyers are seeking at least $2 million in damages and an injunction barring the use of any trademarks or work product created or produced by 50 Cent. The mixtape, titled “Renzel Remixes,” consists of two discs, came out last month and is available for download.

A representative for Mr. Roberts couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Rick Ross tried it. He definitely should have known better.
