Ludacris Hit With Copyright Lawsuit for 'Get Back'


Ludacris


Three producers claimed Ludacris stole their beats for the 2004 song.

Ludacris is hit a with a copyright infringement case after three producers claimed they own a track that was released in the rapper's 2004 album 'The Red Light District'.

The Pensylvania producers - Damon Mayfield, Markus Vick and Anthony Turner - filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, claiming that the rapper and his label Disturbing Tha Peace had used the song they sent without acknowledging them.

Back in 2004, Boogii Men Entertainment Group sent DTP a CD containing beats but never got a meaningful response for it. When Ludacris released his album later that year, the three producers noticed similarity in sound of their sent material with Ludacris' track 'Get Back'.

No amount of compensation or details regarding the lawsuit have been released.

'Get Back' was released as a single in October 2004 and received a remix featuring Sum 41. The song which production is credited to The Medicine Men and Tic Toc, was later on claimed to have been a song directed towards fellow rapper T.I..
