Mac Miller better get lawyered up quick because one of the legends in the game is coming after him with a $10 Million lawsuit! Legendary rapper and producer Lord Finesse is suing Miller for the unauthorized use of Finesse’s 1995 hit song, “Hip 2 Da Game” from his album The Awakening. Check out the full story here.
The lawsuit claims that Miller used the instrumental for his “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza (The Kool-Aid Song)” on his mixtape Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Sh*t without Finesse’s permission.
Mac Miller has responded to the lawsuit on twitter. Check out what he said below:
“I’m supposed to be on hush but lemme speak on this real quick. 1. I made that record and video as nothing more than an 18 year old kid who wanted to rhyme and pay homage, no other intentions. 2. Finesse and I spoke on the phone for an hour after he heard the record and cleared the air. We even planned to work on music together. 3. All I wanted to do is shed light on a generation that inspired me. 4. When I heard there was a problem, I reached out to him to try and solve it. No response. 5. Finesse never cleared the Oscar Peterson sample on the original record. I did nothing wrong. We spoke on the phone had a good conversation, he was cool with the record. It’s all love tho. I ain’t even mad at dude. He still a legend.”
Oh okay, so the original sample wasn’t even cleared. Hmm, does Finesse still have a case then? How do you feel about the lawsuit? Do you think Finesse deserves a cut of Miler’s career?
