According to a lawsuit filed in New York, obtained by TMZ, Poindexter claims 50 Cent used his track without asking for permission first. The song appears on his ‘War Angel’ mixtape released for free in 2009, which Poindexter claims the rapper believes gives him immunity from copyright claims. He said in the suit: “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.” Poindexter is suing 50 Cent for unspecified statutory damages and a further $600,000 in punitive damages, plus interest. According to the gossip website, 50 Cent’s representatives refused to comment.
