Cash Money Records is facing legal action for allegedly using a sample featured on a Bow Wow track without permission.

According to TMZ, Robert “Bobby” Poindexter of R&B group the Persuaders is suing the hip-hop label for sampling his group’s song, ‘Love Gotta Pack Up (and Walk Out),’ on Bow Weezy’s 2010 tune, ‘Still Ballin.’ He alleges that neither Cash Money nor Mr. ‘106 & Park’ obtained permission to use the song.

Furthermore, Poindexter claims that when he tried to reach out to Cash Money, they redirected him to Bow Wow’s attorney, who then pointed him back to the label. It looks like someone was trying to pass the buck.

Poindexter is seeking $600,000 in punitive damages, plus interest. Attorneys for both Cash Money and Bow Wow had no comment on the matter.

This isn’t the first time Poindexter had to sued rappers for illegally sampling his group’s songs. In April 2012, the singer-producer slapped both Kanye West and 50 Cent with separate copyright-infringement lawsuits over unauthorized samples.

We think it’s time that either rappers start paying up or leave the Persuaders’ catalog alone.
