Diddy and Jay-Z even joined 50 on the remix because it was so popular.br /br /Anytime people call emCurtis/em a flop, 50 Cent often points out how “I Get Money” was a top 20 hit without any promotion. The song was always given credit for its simplistic originality, but it appears as if that is not the case. An Atlanta rapper said he paid for the beat and he is suing for it.br /br /Tyrone “Caliber” Simmons is arguing that he paid for all rights to the beat. Once 50 Cent heard the song, he decided that he wanted it. Simmons owned the rights to it, but 50 Cent decided to use the song anyway. Because of this, Simmons is suing Aftermath Entertainment, G-Unit Records, andnbsp;Shady Records for copyright infringement.br /br /Simmons’ lawyer said this kind of infringement is unfair and will not be tolerated. They are hoping to make an example out of 50 Cent for the frequent copyright infringement in rap music.div class=”blogger-post-footer”div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”
