Judge Determines Rick Ross Can Rap All Over 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” If He Wants.
A federal judge has dismissed 50 Cent‘s lawsuit against Rick Ross over his use of the 2003 hit “In Da Club” for his Renzel Remixes mixtape, TMZ reports.
According to Ross’ attorney Leron Rogers, 50 doesn’t own the copyright or master recordings for the platinum-selling number. In fact, Shady/Aftermath Records are the true owners of the song.
50 dragged Rozay to court in 2015 over the song in the midst of a public feud, which resulted in the G-Unit boss forking over $7 million for posting a sex tape of his nemesis’ baby mama, Lastonia Leviston.
The Power executive was not pleased by Rozay’s use of the song as a way to promote his forthcoming album at the time, Black Market, and allegedly used the lawsuit as a form of retaliation.
