The perpetual beef between 50 Cent and Rick Ross continues, with the rapper suing Rick Ross over using the song In Da Club on the Renzel Remixes mixtape.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit claims that not only did Rick Ross use one of his most popular songs without the rapper’s permission, but that he also used it to drum up publicity for his recently released album Black Market.
The beef between Rick Ross and 50 Cent has been alive since the 2009 BET awards, where 50 Cent allegedly looked at Rick Ross wrong, since then it has continued in the form of multiple diss tracks, derogatory cartoons, and lawsuits.
Earlier in the year, the beef appeared to have been squashed after 50 cent leaked a sex tape of Rick Ross’s baby mama, Lavonia Leviston, was sued by her immediately afterwards and had the jury award her $5 million in damages, forcing the rapper to file for bankruptcy to protect his assets.
It could be that this particular lawsuit by 50 Cent is potentially just a shot taken in retaliation over the lawsuit he ended up losing over leaking the sex tape. While Rick Ross has addressed the beef and has expressed his desire for it to die, 50 Cent seems to have no intention of letting it be squashed, with him going as far as to interrupt an interview that was taking place with the sole intent of poking fun of the projected album sales for Rick Ross’ new album Black Market, a few weeks ago.
The lawsuit which was filed in Connecticut, is seeking damages of over $2 million from Rick Ross to 50 Cent for using the famous track.
