50 Cent Accused of Stealing Power Premise


Rapper 50 Cent is being sued by a pair of screen writers who claim he stole their script for his hit TV series Power...

According to reports writers R. Byron Hord and Curtis Scoon filed a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court this week claiming they wrote a pilot script back in 2009 for a show called 'Dangerous' about a Black former kingpin trying to go straight while maintaining his friendship with an Irish gangster.

In their lawsuit Hord and Scoon claim in 2011 they gave the script to LA based execs who pitched the series to 50 Cent but never heard back.

Now the two are suing for copyright infringement.

50 Cent, Starz and parent company CBS are all named in the suit.

I follow the Curtis Scoon guy on Twitter. He's a pretty smart guy but not without flaws. He has been tweeting about this lawsuit for years now. He claims he doesn't need the money but that it is based on the principle of the matter.

Any who, I wish them well. 50 Cent is a hot mess.

Sad for Curtis cuz 1) he hasn't been too successful with the lawsuits lately and 2) wasn't he just accusing Empire of ripping of this very same show, Power?

Karma may not be a bitch at times, but she will be a muthafucker.

Anybody know what the ratings for Power's season finale where? I watched it but was bored with it. Angela is a filthy weak Hoe. Ghost was stupid and it seems that Kane will never die on this show.
