Usually, 50 Cent is the one hounding people down for money, so is this his karma?
Dancehall legend Lady Saw turned Christian Minister, Marion Hall, put Fif on BLAST for using one of her songs in Power Book II: Ghost, which aired in 2020. Lady Saw is reaching out to 50 Cent for using her 2004 song “Strip Tease” in the first episode of Power Book II: Ghost, according to Urban Islandz.
In a message online, Lady Saw gave 50 Cent props for being a “savvy businessman,” she also wanted clarity on if he paid her for using her song. In the lengthy message, she said,
“I know you got some money for me, for using one of my songs in one of your power episodes. Or you might have given it to someone, who’s been taking my money, and not giving it to me ,cause I haven’t gotten paid for that song ,or any other songs that was used in other movie.” She continued,
“I use to go by the name lady Saw. With all due respect. I need to know who to go to, so I can collect what is mine. I know you’re a respectable business man, and wouldn’t mind if you could produce a movie about my life. Look me up, and see if my story, interest you. I did send you a private massage before, but I know you must have gotten so many messages, that some gets lost in the trash. I hope this one don’t,” the outlet reports.
Lady Saw spoke with Tamara McKayle on The Trailblazers Show last November and opened up about her music used in entertainment, and she hasn’t been compensated. For example, according to Lady Saw, her Country hit “Give Me A Reason,” released in 1996, has been used in numerous samples and covers which she has not benefitted from. During the interview, Lady Saw said, “Even with Vitamin C -put a smile on your face’…that song was used by Hershey bar. I was in Jamaica watching it play on all these soap operas. Adam Sandler movie, How Stella Got Her Groove Back.”
