MIAMI - Rapper 50 Cent stole some of the lyrics for his 2003 hit "In Da Club" from a song by former 2 Live Crew frontman Luther Campbell, an attorney claims in a lawsuit.

Richard C. Wolfe filed the copyright infringement lawsuit against Curtis James Jackson, aka 50 Cent, in Miami federal court last week on behalf of Lil' Joe Wein Music.

Parts of "In Da Club," from the album "Get Rich or Die Tryin'", copy "It's Your Birthday," released in 1994 on Campbell's solo album "Still a Freak for Life," the lawsuit alleged.

A message left Friday for Wolfe was not immediately returned.

Lil' Joe Wein Music holds the copyright to "It's Your Birthday" and other songs Campbell produced with his rap group 2 Live Crew and as a solo artist. Lil' Joe Wein Music is owned by Joseph Weinberger, an attorney who formerly represented Campbell.

Campbell's song "I Like It, I love It" can also be heard on the 2003 DVD "50 Cent The New Breed," the lawsuit claims.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages in addition to attorneys' fees and other legal costs.

i dunno if this might get too far. 50 cent could probably buy himself some better lawyers, and his way out of it if things got very serious.

ok i am fair from a 50 fan, but heaps of mc's/rappers recycle lines, its not as if they are really stealing them for a whoole song, just like a sample. the only reason this is drawn to attention is because 50 gets so much publicity, half the mc's in the business could be sued for recycled rhymes. perhaps jigga for instance, btw anyone heard that track with all the biggy lines he used. i found it interesting.
