Game Sued Over Mixtape Beat

(AllHipHop News) The Game has been sued from a producer over a beat that was used for the rapper’s highly touted mixtape California Republic.

The rapper has been slapped with a $100,000 lawsuit by Infamous, according to TMZ.

Infamous claims that he gave The Game the beat to “Skate On” in 2010 so that the Compton rapper could determine if he wanted to use it. He alleges that he never heard from The Game, but the song was used on the free mixtape without his consent.

Infamous also charges that he tried to contact The Game in April via a letter, but did not get a response.

Infamous said he generally charges from $20,000 — $25,000 per beat.

    […] No matter how cool and relaxed Producer X is, it doesn’t take long for him to realize that everyone (the artist, managers, promoters) is making money off their music, except for them. While artists can chase dollars any number of ways, for a producer their financial options are much more limited. They’re inherently at the mercy of the rapper, so I can easily understand why a lawsuit may feel like their only option, especially when the use of the beat was unauthorized (and the rapper could have easily paid).
