50 Cent and Rick Ross

50 Cent has sued Rick Ross for allegedly ripping off his hit song, 'In Da Club' and remixing it to promote his new album, 'Black Market'.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, claims that Ross unlawfully used his music for publicity without his permission. Ross raps over 'In Da Club' on a free mixtape titled 'Renzel Remixes,' which is being used to advertise his upcoming album.

According to the lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday, December 23 in a federal court in Connecticut, 50 is demanding $2million in damages.

In addition to the $2 million in damages, 50 Cent’s lawyers are also looking for a court order to prevent Ross from using any of the rapper’s trademarks or work.

This is the latest development, not to mention lawsuit, in the long-standing feud between 50 Cent and Ross. As we earlier reported this past July, 50 Cent was ordered to pay more than $7 million to Lastonia Leviston, the mother of Ross’s child, for leaking a sex tape of her online. The ruling resulted in 50 Cent filing for bankruptcy three days later. 50 Cent posted the explicit footage of Ross’s now ex-girlfriend as a way of provoking the rapper, despite him not actually being featured in the video.

Looks like the broke star wants some money… and fast!
