50 Cent Says Man Suing Him Doesn't Own Allegedly Unauthorized Sample

50 Cent says the man suing him for using his sample doesn't even own it.

In April, The Persuaders' Robert Poindexter filed a suit in New York over 50 Cent's uncleared use of the group's track "Love Gonna Pack Up and Walk Away" from 50's "Redrum," included on the rapper's War Angel album.

Now, 50 has responded, stating that he hasn't violated any copyright laws.

TMZ reports that 50 claims in recently filed court documents that Poindexter doesn't own the rights to the music because he apparently signed them over to Warner Music Group.

50 has asked the judge to dismiss the case.
