50 Cent and Dr. Dre Sued, Accused of Stealing 'P.I.M.P.'....15 Years Later


50 Cent and Dr. Dre are being sued for their 2003 hit “P.I.M.P.” by a man who says they stole the song for him.

via TMZ:

Brandon Parrott says he sent 10 tracks to Dr. Dre in 2001 … in hopes one of Dre’s artists — like Eminem — would record his music. Cut to 2003, when Parrott says he got a call from a producer for Dre’s company, Aftermath Entertainment.

He says the producer admitted Parrott’s track, “BAMBA” was used in “P.I.M.P.” — and was included on 50’s huge debut album, “Get Rich or Die Tryin'”. Parrott says the producer pleaded ignorance — that he had no idea “BAMBA” was going to end up on the final edit.

In other words: It was an honest mistake.

Parrott says he signed a settlement deal based on that story — but he’s recently heard interviews where it’s now clear to him it was no mistake. He feels 50 and Aftermath took advantage of him.

Parrott’s going after both parties for a cut of that “P.I.M.P.” dough.

Why is this lawsuit happening in 2016 though?
