Rapper Pitbull

Sued over the Sound of Music

12/1/2009 9:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The acoustics of the song "Hotel Room Service" are so important to rapper Pitbull, he'll allegedly bail on a gig if you don't have the right sound equipment ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Pitbull is being sued by the El Potrero Night Club in Cudahy, CA, which claims it paid the rapper $28,000 for a concert back on May 14.

In the lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the owners of the club say Pitbull showed up on the day of the gig and complained about the sound equipment ... then officially bailed on them four hours before he was supposed to go on.

The owners of the club say Pitbull made off with their $28,000 -- and claim a total loss of $80,000 from the last-minute cancellation.

Ever time you book an act you get sent a rider, it tells the promoter what type of gear they need to bring and how it has to be set up! if the promoter does not do what is in the rider then the act does not have to go on stage. so i bet the club didn't do what was asked of them and he didn't go on
the club won't get a dime is my bet :)
