Akon, Bone Thugs Sued Over Stolen Beats

7/19/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guys who sued Common this week for copyright infringement are now taking aim at Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Akon -- accusing them of ripping off the exact same song!

Bone Thugs & Akon
In a lawsuit filed the day after Common's, Songster, LLC -- which owns the rights to the song "When Will the Day Come" -- claims Bone, Akon and producer Swizz Beatz jacked their music for the collaboration "I Tried."

Songster is seeking unspecified damages -- no word on who they'll sue next.

Um that song is old and they just now claim it was stolen from them? Sounds suspicious. Someone must be trying to scrape up some rent money or something. I doubt they will win these lawsuits.

Akon has yet to have a single original song. And his singing is less than mediocre. Why is he even famous????

Akon is a piece of trash. Total piece of trash!!! He picks on people in the crowds and isn't even remotely talented.

This is exactly what happens when you have no talent and can not put pen to paper and write music. How are rappers even considered musicians?
