G-Unit boss 50 Cent and Dr. Dre are reportedly in hot water over their early 2000’s hit single “P.I.M.P.”
According to reports, producer Brandon Parrott issues stem from him sending Dre 10 tracks back in 2001.
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. 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.

Last week, 50 teased fans about the return of his Starz show “Power.”
In late May, 50 explained his decision to move the night “Power” airs.
Barring any changes, “Power” season three officially returns in mid-July.
In a move that shifts the show from its regular Saturday evening timeslot, EW has learned that the Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson-produced drama is set to premiere Sunday, July 17, and will include 10 one-hour episodes – although whether that proves long enough for James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) to get out of the crime game remains unseen.
