Game is the latest rapper to get hit with a lawsuit over a mixtape track, specifically for a cut off his recently released California Republic project.
According to TMZ.com, a producer who goes by the name Infamous (real name: Marco Rodriguez) recently filed a lawsuit in California against the Compton hip-hop star, claiming a beat he sent him was used without his permission.
Infamous claims, via court docs, that he's worked with The Game regularly in the past, so he sent him a beat to listen to back in 2010 ... so Game could decide whether or not he wanted to use it. But, the producer claims he never reached any deal with the rapper for the beat, so when it showed up on a song called "Skate On," off the California Republic, he says he was shocked.
Infamous claims he sent a letter to Game in April in an effort to resolve the issue, but never got a response.
The producer says he usually charges between $20-$25,000 per song, and is suing Game for damages in excess of $100,000.
