Rapper Fabolous is being sued by a woman who claims the hip-hop star's 2001 hit YOUNG 'N (HOLLA BACK) was stolen from a group on her record label.

CARLA BOONE, from Brooklyn, New York, claims she gave CDs, featuring the song HOLLA BACK by her group TRAJIK, to promoters and executives who worked with Fabolous.

Boone, who set up an independent recording label five years ago, claims the song's hook ended up on Fabolous' platinum selling album GHETTO FABOLOUS.

Boone is seeking unspecified damages from Fabolous' collaborators THE Neptunes, who produced the single, and record labels ELEKTRA, EMI APRIL MUSIC and the WARNER MUSIC GROUP.
