T.D. Jakes To Take Legal Action Against Jeezy


(AllHipHop News) T.D. Jakes, the famed preacher, author and film maker, has announced that he plans to take legal action against an unauthorized sample on the remix of “Holy Ghost” from his new album Seen It All.

The exact nature of the legal action has not been determined.
Jakes revealed the move on his Facebook page, stating the following:

SPECIAL NOTICE: The ‘Holy Ghost’ remix by Jeezy featuring Kendrick Lamar was produced without the knowledge or consent of T.D. Jakes, TDJ Enterprises, Dexterity Music or its associated companies. We are taking the necessary legal actions to stop the unauthorized use of T.D. Jakes’ intellectual property.

The sample stems from a speech from Jakes called “Don’t Let The Chatter Stop You.”
In it, Jakes says, “To tell myself, I’m still on fire. I’m under attack, but I’m still on fire. I got some chatter, but I’m still on fire. I got some threat, but I’m still on fire. I got some liabilities, but I’m still on fire. If it’s not amazing that I’m on fire. I’ve been to hell and back, but I’m still on fire.”

The “Holy Ghost” remix features Kendrick Lamar.
