50 Cent Wins Copyright Lawsuit Over "I Get Money"

50 Cent avoids a copyright lawsuit stemming from 2010 over his hit single "I Get Money."

Back in 2010, 50 Cent was hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit over his 2007 single "I Get Money." Now, two years later, the Queens rapper has officially won the lawsuit in which another rapper claimed an exclusive license for the song's instrumental.

As DX previously reported, rapper Tyronne Simmons levied a suit against 50 Cent and producer Apex over the original beat of the song, which he said he purchased the exclusive license to prior to it's official release. Apex apparently apologized to Simmons for the issue offered him an array of other beats, but Simmons continued the pursue legal action.

Now, however, Opposing Views reports that the lawsuit been thrown out of court for some of the parties involved. 50 Cent and other plaintiffs named - including UMG Recordings, Interscope Records, Aftermath Records, Shady Records and G-Unit Records - will not face the wrath of the law as the suit exceeded the three-year statute of limitations for copyright suits. 

Although 50 and company are out of the woods in this case, there is no word whether Apex will face charges for copyright infringement.
