“Larry Johnson claims he wrote a manuscript, ‘Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid,’ and in 2005, sent it to Nikki Turner, who works for 50 at G-Unit Books,".

 “He says the book was eventually published elsewhere, but believes Nikki showed the manuscript to 50. Johnson claims much to his horror, in 2014 Starz debuted ‘Power’ Fiddy's show about a drug dealer who's trying to go legit.

In his book, the primary character has a goatee ... ditto ‘Ghost’ in ‘Power.’ In fact, Johnson says he even uses the nickname ‘Ghost’ as his pen name.”

Johnson is seeking $200 million from his lawsuit.

When "Power" debuted in 2014, Johnson says he couldn't help but notice the similarities.
