It's been years since released the song "Sex Room" featuring back in 2010, but that did not stop a Chicago rapper named Marvo from filing a lawsuit against the Grammy Award-winning rapper and actor for allegedly stealing his original concept. Marvo is suing for a yet unspecified amount which most likely will include unpaid royalties.

In the lawsuit, Marvo claims that he worked on the original composition back in 2009 with producer Kajun, who supposedly sold his song to Ludacris without his knowledge. Apart from changing some parts of the original, Ludacris was said to have kept most of the original lyrics, particularly some written by Marvo such as "welcome to my sex room" and "it's a private party."

"Sex Room" was recorded by Ludacris for his seventh studio album "" and was released as the album's third single. Although Kajun is officially credited as the track's producer, Christopher Bridges and Tremaine Neverson are listed as its writers.

Prior to this latest legal hitch, Ludacris has had his share of controversies over song lyrics, most recent of which was over his 2008 "The Preview" mixtape track "Politics As Usual", where he criticized more than a few prominent political figures like Jesse Jackson, John McCain, George W. Bush and Hillary Clinton. A few more years back in 2002, his lyrics compelled political commentator Bill O'Reilly to call for a boycott of Pepsi products for having Ludacris as an endorser.
