50 Cent isn't denying the fact that he sampled a song called Love Gonna Pack Up and Walk Out by The Persuaders, but he doesn't think that he can be sued for it either.
The rapper is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit from a man named Robert Poindexter, who's accusing him of using the soul tune without permission to create Redrum, a track he handed out to fans for free online.
50 is denying any copyright infringement and doesn't even think Poindexter actually owns the rights to the song in the first place.
According to the defendant, the plaintiff signed over the rights to Warner Music Group years ago.
If true, that should kill the case pretty quickly, but a judge has yet to rule on the matter.
