Part of G-Unit isn't feeling so hot right now. Rapper and actor 50 Cent is being sued for copyright infringement, according to Billboard.

It turns out that rapping about how you've got tons of money isn't always a good thing. Atlanta rapper Caliber is filing a lawsuit against Fitty and the producer who dropped the beat on 50 Cent's song "I Get Money," as well as multiple companies in the music industry.

Caliber claimed the exclusive rights to the instrumental track that was used on "I Get Money" belonged to him.

As 50 Cent once said in his song "In Da Club," "In the hood in L.A. they sayin', '50, you hot.'" Well, they might not be saying that so much today.
