Rapper-50 Cent Says He Lost A Court Case Because He Is BLACK

50 cent in court
Rapper-50 Cent seems not to have faith in the US justice system as the rapper says he got SCREWED in court recently because the judge was a rap-hating RACIST.

Since 50 thinks he was unfairly treated, he is seeking ti have the allegedly bias ruling overturned,according to court docs.

TMZ Writes;

Earlier this year 50 and company called Sleek Audio were embroiled in a bitter lawsuit. 50 claimed Sleek owed him over $261,000. Sleek said otherwise. The case went to arbitration — a binding process in which an arbitrator picks the winner.

Bad news for 50, the arbitrator sided with Sleek (the final $$$ judgement was kept under wraps).

But 50 refuses to gently into that good night … and is taking the battle to federal court — claiming the arbitration judge discriminated against him because he’s black, associates with controversial African-American figures AND because he’s a high profile rap artist.

Specifically … 50 says the bias ran so deep the judge didn’t allow him to cross-examine witnesses and refused to look at evidence pertaining to the case. Pretty bold claims.

He wants the award axed ASAP and is asking for a new hearing … where he says he’ll prove the judge was out to get him from the get go.

Sleek fired back too … claiming 50’s allegations of racism are a desperate attempt to avoid the arbitration decision and get it brought before an actual court.

50 cent in court

Rapper Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson appeared yesterday in court alongside his attorney Scott Leemon and pleaded not guilty to charges that he attacked his ex-girlfriend Daphne Narvarez and trashed her apartment.

The 38-year-old, best known for tracks like In Da Club and appearances in films including Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, could face faces up to five years in jail and a $46,000 (£30,000) fine if convicted.

Jackson destroyed property at Narvarez’s Toluca Lake condominium during an argument on June 23, she told police.

When she locked herself in the bedroom to escape Jackson, he allegedly kicked the door open and kicked her.

Narvarez dated Jackson, with whom she has a child, for three years.

50 Cent must adhere to a criminal protective order that states he must stay at least 100 yards away from Narvarez and was also ordered to turn over any firearms he might own.

He’s due back in court on September 4.

Rapper 50 Cent Sued For Allegedly Stealing Song Sample

 

Rapper 50 Cent has been sued by Robert Poindexter of The Persuaders for allegedly stealing a sample snippet of his band’s song, Love Gonna Pack Up And Walk Out without permission, for the song Redrum, which he released online for free…

Fiddy argues that because he didn’t charge for the track, he does not have to abide by copyright laws. REALLY?

The suit reads:

“Fifty Cents [sic] has not denied the infringement, but appears to be basing his defense solely on a frivolous and immaterial claim that the illegal version is not being commercially exploited, but is given away for free.”

Robert Poindexter via the lawsuit is asking for an unknown amount of statutory damages and $600,000 in punitive, plus interest.
