Once again, 50 Cent is being sued by a man who claims he came up with the idea for Power. This has happened before with not only Power, but Empire as well. R. Byron Hord and Curtis Scoon claim that they pitched the show to 50 Cent in March of 2011, except theirs was titled Dangerous. It was about a black drug dealer attempting to turn his life around for the better, and included a Irish gangster friend and his girlfriend. Hord and Scoon are also suing Starz and parent company CBS, and are looking to get as much as $180,000 per episode.
Yung Joc had to get some money he was owed from his former booking agent, so apparently he figured he’d kill two birds with one stone and get some TV exposure out of it while he did so. The rapper appeared on Judge Faith yesterday, suing Polo 2G for $6000 for not giving him the money owed from deals, as well as for using a look-a-like to make money off of his name. Polo was also countersuing for $1000, claiming Joc failed to reward him after losing a game of Spades. Honestly, this whole thing looks fake as f*ck, but whatever. Enjoy it below.

It included softballs, a copy of Pink Floyd’s The Wall and a framed photo of Vladimir Putin. Check out the funny clip below.
