*Rapper and music mogul 50 Cent claims that he lost his court case because the judge was a rap-hating racist and according to court docs, wants the ruling overturned.
50 and Sleek Audio were in a heated lawsuit after the rapper claimed the company owed him $261,000. The case went to arbitration, which is a binding process in which an arbitrator picks the winner.
Unfortunately for 50, the arbitrator ruled in Sleek Audio’s favor.
Now 50 is taking his claim to federal court with claims the ruling was biased and the judge discriminated against him because he’s black and a high profile rap artist.
The claim also stated that 50 wasn’t even allowed to cross-examine witnesses and refused to look at evidence pertaining to the case.
In the new hearing, 50 has plans to prove that the judge was out to get him from the start.
But Sleek on the other hand, claims 50’s allegations of racism are a desperate attempt to avoid the arbitration decision and get it brought before an actual court.
