Rick Ross Responds to 50 Cent's 'In Da Club' Lawsuit Via Twitter

50 Cent and Rick Ross’ beef is seemingly unending. Earlier this week, it was reported that Fif had filed a lawsuit against Ross for rapping over his "In Da Club" beat. More recently, Ross decided to share his thoughts on the matter via Twitter.

On Thursday (Dec. 24), Ross took to social media to subliminally respond to Fif’s $2 million lawsuit.

In a statement sent to Billboard, 50 Cent’s publicist said the lawsuit was filed to protect the Queens rapper’s reputation.

“50 Cent’s most valuable asset is the name and reputation he has painstakingly built through his Grammy-winning music, acting, and business endeavors,” said Paul LiCalsi, partner and co-chair of the Entertainment and Media Litigation Group at Robins Kaplan LLP. “He chooses his projects carefully for the very purpose of protecting that name and reputation.”

The statement also claims that Ross used the instrumental for 50 Cent’s 2003 hit, without his permission, to promote his Black Market album. Ross swiped the track for his #RenzelRemixes mixtape.

“Our complaint alleges that Rick Ross has taken these without permission to advertise his own album, and violated 50 Cent’s rights in the process, and we believe he should be held liable,” LiCalsi noted.

Earlier this month, 50 Cent poked fun at the opening week sales for Ross’ latest album. The album reportedly moved 34,000 units.

"34,000? Is that a rock or a brick? 34,388 copies and you know they went and bought some," suggesting Ross' Ross' camp bought a chunk of the units that were sold. However, it was later reported that Ross actually moved 50,000 units in its first week.

It has also been reported that Black Market had been pulled from Walmart’s shelves following a complaint he made by video blogger Mark Dice.
