The plaintiffs claim a sample from the track “Jimmy Smith Rap” was used on the Drake record without permission. The Smith estate is apparently seeking $300,000 from Drizzy and others.

“Pound Cake,” which features an appearance by Jay Z, was included on Drake’s third album Nothing Was The Same. The liner notes from the project state that “Jimmy Smith Rap” was properly licensed.

Smith died in 2005 at the age of 79.
