Ludacris getting sued…….

January 29, 2008

Three producers from Chester, Pennsylvania have filed a lawsuit against Ludacris that claims the superstar MC swiped one their ideas for a song. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Anthony Turner, Damon Mayfield and Markus Vick — known as the Boogii Men Entertainment Group — filed the suit in U-S District Court in Philly last week. The suit attests that the Boogii Men sent a beat CD called Boogii Men Beats Volume 1 to Luda’s Disturbing Tha Peace label back in 2004, but were brushed off when they reached out to see if there was any interest in any of their tracks. The trio claims that when the rapper dropped his next album six months later, The Red Light District, they noticed similarities between one of their tracks and the song “Get Back.”

It is unclear whether or not the men are asking for an injunction against sales of the CD, nor is the amount of any punitive or compensatory damages sought known. Their attorney declined to comment on the case to the Inquirer.

Follow up Report: R.Kelly is going to jail……

December 20, 2007

A bench warrant was issued for R. Kelly today for his failure to appear in a Chicago court for his child pornography case. According to Kelly’s defense lawyer, Ed Genson, he was held up in Utah because of the snow:

State police pulled over Kelly’s tour bus in Green River, Utah, to check the bus’ log, Genson said. The log details how long a particular driver has been driving a bus. The police ordered Kelly’s bus to stop for eight hours because the log had not been properly filled out, Genson said.

The bus went to the nearest motel. “We had a lawyer down there. We cut the eight hours down to three or four,” Genson said.

Genson assured Gaughan that Kelly had made every effort to make it to court on time. “Mr. Kelly is presently about two hours away from the courtroom,” Genson said.
