50 cent*Hip Hop mogul 50 Cent is being sued for allegedly stealing a sample of someone else’s music. Tisk tisk.

According to the suit, he used a song without permission and didn’t even seem to care.

Robert Poindexter of the Persuaders claims that he took a part of the band’s song, “Love Gonna Pack Up and Walk Out.”

The song appeared on an album that the rapper posted online for free. The alleged original artist says he thinks that’s what makes 50 believe he owes them nothing.

“Fifty Cents [sic] has not denied the infringement, but appears to be basing his defense solely on a frivolous and immaterial claim that the illegal version is not being commercially exploited, but is given away for free.”

50 is being sued for $600,000.
