50 Cent has been named in a lawsuit by a little-known rapper over allegations of copyright infringement.
Tyrone Simmons, who goes by the rap name Caliber, filed suit in a Brooklyn, New York federal court on Wednesday claiming he bought the exclusive rights to use the instrumental beat of the star’s 2007 hit song I Get Money.

Simmons accuses 50 Cent of infringement by using the track, and he also names the tune’s creator and several music companies in his suit.

He is seeking unspecified damages.
