Rap Group Blazhay Blazhay Sues Wyclef Over "Danger"
Hip-Hop duo Blazhay Blazhay have sued former Fugees star Wyclef Jean for alleged illegal use of their memorable hit Danger.
Blahzay Blahzay, comprised of DJ PF Cuttin and MC Out Loud, claim that Wyclef Jean violated their copyright entitlement by using elements of Danger in the 2007 song Welcome to the East.
Blahzays Danger was released in 1995, and immediately became popular on East Coast radio outlets.
The track utilized creative vocal samples, such as Jeru the Damajas Come Clean, and Gwen McCraes infectious 1975 hit Rockin Chair as a rhythm foundation.
After releasing an all-star DJ Premier-produced remix, the group released one album, 1996s Blah Blah Blah.
The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan Federal Court, and also names Sony BMG Entertainment as a defendant.
The music giant alleged culpability stems from the songs distribution on Carnival Vol. II: Memoirs of an Immigrant, Wyclefs sixth studio album.
At press time, Wyclef could not be reached for comment.
