Cash Money Records Sued Over Unauthorized Sample On A Bow Wow Song

Cash Money records faces legal issues for sampling a song by The Persuaders.

Cash Money Records is facing yet another lawsuit—except this time, rather than a disgruntled producer who actually made a track for the label, it’s one who alleges an uncleared sample.

TMZ reports that Robert Poindexter of the ‘70s band The Persuaders claims Cash Money sampled his band’s song “Love Gotta Pack Up (and Walk Out)” for Bow Wow’s 2010 track “Still Ballin.”

The suit says that neither Cash Money nor Bow Wow obtained permission to use the 1972 song, which topped the charts.

Poindexter claims he reached out to Cash Money, and that the label redirected him to Bow Wow’s attorneys, who in turn pointed him towards Cash Money.

Poindexter is seeking $600,000 in punitive damages, plus interest.

Poindexter previously sued 50 Cent over the use of the same song, and Kanye West’s use of another on a 2006 mixtape.

    John Legend, Arrested Development, Bizzy Bone, Am Winehouse and many more artists paid Poindexter and his staff to sample or cover his songs in the past. The least that these so called "Ballin" rappers could have done was have their company clear the sample or get some sort of authorization even if it was for a mixtape track because they have the resources to do so. (Im not talking about underground artists.)

    Before you hipsters start bashing Robert Poindexter for filing this lawsuit. I highly suggest you go on YouTube and watch the video about him talking about his past lawsuits with Kanye and 50 Cent. He is happy that they sampled his music, but their mixtapes were and still are being sold online (contrary to our belief, those mixtapes are not free and are being sold on certain sites)
