50 Cent wins BIG in the court of appeals after the judge dismissed a lawsuit filed against him for his 2007 hit ‘I Get Money‘ Atlanta rapper Young Caliber filed the lawsuit claiming that he bought the beat and was the rightful owner prior to 50’s use of it and it’s success. The case was thrown out initially due to the passing of the 3-year statute of limitations, but Young Caliber appealed the decision to get another chance at taking what he believes is his.

Tyrone Simmons aka Young Caliber, filed the lawsuit in 2010 stating that 50 Cent and his producers along with the 50’s label had infringed upon his rights with their use of the beat for ‘I Get Money’ which was released in 2007.

50 Cent’s lawyer made it clear that he is free and clear of any further punishment from this claim,

Today the Second Circuit Court of Appeals vindicated Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, in a copyright case relating to his 2007 hit record ‘I Get Money.” The plaintiff in the case claimed that he was the owner of the underlying beat of the track, but the appeals court affirmed an earlier ruling that the plaintiff had waited too long to raise his complaint.

So we don’t learn whether or not he was telling the truth, which is very possible. The fact of the matter is that the statute of limitations had passed for his claim and for that reason, no one could be held accountable at this point.
