Kanye and T.I. Have Been Sued By A Rap Hating Rock Band!

(AllHipHop News) Universal Records, T.I. and Kanye West are the targets of a new lawsuit by Bloodstone, an R&B/Funk/Rock band that does not approve of hip-hop music.

In a new lawsuit, the 3-person group stated their claim.

“Plaintiffs do not approve of their song being sampled in a hip hop or rap song.”

“Bloodstone did not know that UMG had granted the license to TI and Kanye West until late 2011/early 2012. Since that time Bloodstone has sought to find out who granted the license to TI without any authority, and recently learned it was Ume [Universal Music Enterprises]. Plaintiffs do not approve of their song being sampled in a hip hop or rap song.”

“On belief, in 2003, in exchange for consideration, Defendant granted the hip-hop artists known as TI and Kanye West a license to sample ‘I’m Just Doing My Job’ without notifying any of the members of Bloodstone and without paying any compensation to Bloodstone. The Bloodstone sound recording of ‘I’m Just Doing My Job’ was used by TI and Kanye West in the song ‘Doin My Job’ in its entirety and has sold millions of copies.

The group seeks an injunction on the songs and punitive damages.
