50 Cent


Caliber accuses the rapper of infringement for using the instrumental beat in 'I Get Money' because he has bought the exclusive rights to the tune.

50 Cent has been named in a lawsuit by a little-known rapper over allegations of copyright infringement. Tyrone Simmons, who goes by the rap name Caliber, filed suit in a Brooklyn, New York federal court on Wednesday, December 15 claiming he bought the exclusive rights to use the instrumental beat of the star's 2007 hit song "I Get Money".

Simmons accuses 50 Cent of infringement by using the track, and he also names the tune's creator and several music companies in his suit. He is seeking unspecified damages.

50 Cent is featured in Michael Jackson's upcoming posthumous album which is due in the U.S. on December 14. He collaborated with the late singer for a track called "Monster".
