Ludacris Sued for Alleged Song Theft

Three producers from Chester, Pa have filed a lawsuit against Ludacris that claims the superstar MC swiped one their ideas for a song. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Anthony Turner, Damon Mayfield and Markus Vick—known as the Boogii Men Entertainment Group—filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Philly last week. The suit claims that the Boogii Men sent a beat CD called Boogii Men Beats Volume 1 to Luda’s Disturing Tha Peace label back in 2004 but were brushed off when they reached out to see if there was any interest in any of their tracks. The trio claims that when the rapper dropped his next album six months later, The Red Light District, they noticed similarities between one of their tracks and the song “Get Back.” It is unclear whether or not the men are asking for an injunction against sales of the CD, or the amount of any punitive or compensatory damages sought. Their attorney, James A. Wells of Haines & Associates, declined to comment on the case to the Inquirer.
