Atlanta rap star Ludacris has been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit by three producers from Chester, Pennsylvania, who claim the rapper stole their track and used it on his hit album The Red Light District.
The lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, alleges that Boogiii Men Entertainment Group sent a CD of beats to Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace label in 2004.
The three producers, Damon Damethegreat Mayfield, Markus Vincent Vick and Anthony Turner, claim their follow up calls to the label were met with lukewarm responses.
The men claim that when Ludacris released his CD The Red Light District in 2004, they noticed similarities between a track on the CD they submitted and Ludacris’ track, titled “Get Back.”
The producers credited for Get Back on Ludacris The Red Light District are The Medicine Men and Tic Toc.
Boogiii Men Entertainment Group is represented by James, Wells of Haines & Associates.
The Boogii Men have worked with artists like Charli Baltimore, Juelz Santana, Rampage of Flipmode Squad, Special Ed, Jaguar Wright and others.
