Hip-Hop duo Blazhay Blazhay have sued former Fugees star Wyclef Jean for alleged illegal use of their memorable hit “Danger.”

 

Blahzay Blahzay, comprised of DJ PF Cuttin’ and MC Out Loud, claim that Wyclef Jean violated their copyright entitlement by using elements of “Danger” in the 2007 song “Welcome to the East.”

 

Blahzay’s “Danger” was released in 1995, and immediately became popular on East Coast radio outlets.

 

The track utilized creative vocal samples, such as Jeru the Damaja’s “Come Clean,” and Gwen McCrae’s infectious 1975 hit “Rockin’ Chair” as a rhythm foundation.

 

After releasing an all-star DJ Premier-produced remix, the group released one album, 1996’s Blah Blah Blah.

 

The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan Federal Court, and also names Sony BMG Entertainment as a defendant.

 

The music giant alleged culpability stems from the song’s distribution on Carnival Vol. II: Memoirs of an Immigrant, Wyclef’s sixth studio album.

 

At press time, Wyclef could not be reached for comment.
