50 Cent is looking to stop Young Buck from selling his intellectual property to pay off creditors in his bankruptcy filing.
Fif’ and his lawyers have filed a motion seeking to halt the sale of Buck’s recordings, publishing and other music-related assets until a judge decides what he’s allowed to sell. 50 says he owns the rights to the former G-Unit member’s material because of their previous record deal. In addition, G-Unit’s lawyers say the label owns all trademarks, logos and even the name “Young Buck.”
The matter will go to a bankruptcy judge in Nashville next month. –Rahim Wright
