50 Cent Faces Lawsuit Over Before I Self Destruct

| Filed under: Legal Matters50 Cent


Last year, 50 Cent released a rather popular album - movie combo called Before I Self Destruct.

This year, he is being sued for allegedly ripping off the concept of both from a book by another author!


Fiddy has been slapped with a lawsuit from novelist Shadrach Winstead. He claims that rapper stole the plot from his book, The Preacher's Son-But The Streets Turned Me Into A Gangster, to write songs for the Destruct album and the story for the partnering movie. Shadrach goes as far as saying that passages from his book are "identical" to some lyrics and lines from the movie.

Uh-oh! That could prove to be pretty strong evidence!

Time to lawyer up, Fiddy!

    I dont believe this one. I looked at the online synopsis of the book and the 50 movie. Sound COMPLETELY different…. I wish people would do minor research instead of just hating. I mean maybe its true, but I doubt it

    Uh oh, maybe 50 shouldn't have taken those pics of himself flaunting all that money, he's about to lose it! Serves that smug a-hole right.
