Floyd Mayweather -- Alleged Beat Jacker

5/4/2010 4:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just days after Floyd Mayweather Jr. beat up Shane Mosley, he's already scheduled for another fight ... and it's all over his musical entrance to a recent WWE event.

Floyd Mayweather
According to a new lawsuit, Pretty Boy Floyd is accused of jacking a beat from a musician named Anthony Lawrence Dash and remixing it for his entrance music for Wreslemania 24 in March 2008. Dash also claims Floyd is using the song on his website.

In the documents, filed Monday in South Carolina, Dash claims he copyrighted the beat in 2005 -- and has sent Floyd multiple cease and desists letters ... that have all been sent back, unopened.

Dash -- who's suing Mayweather, WWE and others -- wants at least $150,000 to make things right.

Calls to Mayweather have not been returned ... presumably because he's still partying his face off in Vegas.

To avoid defending his belt to such elite Welterweights fighters, Floyd Mayweather refused to pay sanction fees thats if he wins his fight with "Sugar" Shane mosley! That also means "once a cherry picker always will be a cherry picker!" Cause once he holds the belt then he will be forced to defend it by mandatory challenges

These Rappers (I'm not calling him a musician)steal all there music. This clown Dash robbed all of his songs by biting up real songs in software. He has the nerve to sue? How do you copyright a beat? It would be like copyrighting the letter G.

Just left Vegas, I met Floyd and his CREW of atleast 10, at Chopard last night in Ceasers. He was buying some BLING and spending some of his winnings. Floyd has to be one of the rudest people I have ever come across. I wish I had video taped how he was treating the sales people and for that matter everyone around him. As if this guy thinks the world revolves around him.
