25 Lawsuits Filed Against Rappers So Far This Year
Like 50 Cent said recently as he battled the public fallout from his bankruptcy filing: "When you're successful and in the public, you become the ideal person for someone to [bring a lawsuit against]." And 50, after losing a $5 million settlement to Rick Ross' baby mama over the release of a sex tape, knows that better than most. The G-Unit chief has been named in a series of lawsuits in recent years, most recently a $200 million suit from a man claiming that Fif stole the concept of his hit Starz show Power from him. But of course, 50 isn't the only one who's been on the receiving end of a court summons; Tyga and The Game have each been sued at least three times apiece in 2015 alone, and plenty of other rappers have been targeted by lawsuits as well. Here are 25 lawsuits that have been filed against rappers in 2015 so far.
