50 Cent Takes Another "L" From Rick Ross
5o cent and Rick Ross have actually had beef for what seems permanently now. They have had battles, baby mamas have actually been included and court rooms. So simply a quick back drop on this beef.
50 Cent has actually lost an appeal in his five-year legal battle against Rick Ross, over the unauthorised sampling of his critical hit 'In Da Club'.
Ross used the song for his 2015 'Renzel Remixes' project, triggering the rap artist-- genuine name Curtis Jackson-- to sue him for alleged copyright infringement in a $2 million lawsuit.
Nevertheless, court documents later acquired by Billboard exposed that Jackson recorded the tune following an arrangement with his then-label, Shady Records/Aftermath Records, which mentioned that he "owns no copyright interest in 'In Da Club.'
Jackson (50 Cent) apparently offered Shady/Aftermath the "perpetual and exclusive rights and non-exclusive right in the recording contract to use his name and liekness "for the functions of trade, or for marketing purposes... in connection with the marketing and exploitation of Phonograph Records and Covered Videos.".
He as a result lost the first stage of the legal battle in 2018 when a lower court ruled in Ross' favour.
They added that Ross was "probably responsible for copyright infringement to Shady/Aftermath" however not 50 Cent.
The court added that Jackson might need to prompt Shady/Aftermath to sue Ross for copyright infringement, but he didn't have the rights to personally do so.
Earlier this month, Ross also decided to clear one of his tracks for use on 50 Cent's upcoming Black Mafia Household criminal offense series, but on the strangest of conditions.
Speaking to Billboard, Ross said he would make it occur as long as the rapper promoted his own line of chicken wings.
" That's most certainly a conversation I' ma need to have," Ross stated. "But him connecting, I'm a profit off it. Which's what it's about with me. I informed him that. He might go to Wingstop and take a photo of a 10-piece Lemon Pepper [chicken wings] and while you at it, take a photo with a Black bottle [of Belaire]
