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.

Judge Throws Out Frank Ocean’s Dad’s $142 Million Lawsuit Against Russell Simmons

ifwt_frank ocean mm

2 years ago, Frank Ocean’s estranged father, Calvin Cooksey, sued Russell Simmons and Global Grind. He accused them of defaming his name by labeling him a deadbeat dad, and decided that $142 million would make it all better. SMH. The Global Grind story was based around a tweet sent out by Frank himself, where he called Cooksey a scheming father and a deadbeat, so it’s not like they made up something out of thin air. Thankfully, a judge has once again shut down the suit, ordering the case to be dismissed once and for all, and Cooksey not be awarded from his complaint.

ifwt_future-x-rocko

Rocko and Future used to be close back in the early 10’s, with Rocko being instrumental in Future’s early success. In 2011, Future signed to Rocko’s A1 Recordings label, and the deal was for Future to make his first 6 albums with them. The pair made a joint deal with Epic Records strictly for distribution, but according to Rocko, that’s when things went south. He alleges that Future cut a side deal with Epic for a few million, and cut him out of the deal. Rocko sued Future for $10 million back in June, which is the number he came out with after calculating 25% of the commission he’s owed off the Epic advances, as well as 20% of Future‘s earnings from touring, endorsements and more. Now Future is firing back, and has filed a countersuit for money he says HE’s actually owed.
