50 Cent is being hit with a 200-million-dollar lawsuit.  TMZ reports the rapper is being accused of allegedly stealing the idea for his hit television show “Power.”  The suit was filed by writer Larry Johnson, who claims that the manuscript he wrote for his book “Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid,” is a copy of 50’s show on Starz.  He says the premise of the “Power” is the same as his book, following a drug dealer who is trying to become “legit.”  “Power” has become a hit among viewers, breaking all-time rating records for Starz most popular original series.
