Since Jay Z has to testify in the “Big Pimpin'” copyright infringement case there are some things he does not want held against him. According to reports, Jigga does not want this wealth or criminal past mentioned during the case. Hova reportedly filed a motion to keep the jury from considering his riches and past charges as factors during the case.
The trial is scheduled to begin on Oct. 13th. Besides Jay, the track’s producer, Timbaland, will also take the stand.
Osama Ahmed Fahmy is suing on behalf of his deceased uncle, Baligh Hamdi, who is the composer of “Khosara, Khosara,” the track he says Jay and Timbaland stole the melody for “Big Pimpin'” from.
