    Jay Z and Timbaland is sum truble

    https://www.billboard.com/articles/co...y-z-big-pimpin

    "There's no dispute that Jay Z's 1999 hit "Big Pimpin'" includes elements of a 1950s Egyptian love ballad, yet the flute notes taken from "Khosara Khosara" have created a lingering problem for the rapper and a hit-making producer.

    For two days last week, Jay Z and producer Timbaland sat in a courtroom in downtown Los Angeles, listening as lawyers and witnesses picked apart their song and the actions that led to its creation."

    When I first read this article I thought why tf doesn't Jay Z just pay the kid and walk away, but it turns out that in 2001 Timbaland actually DID pay for the sample that the nephew of the original artist claimed was stolen! The family of the original artist, sued producer Timbaland and he paid $100,000 to buy the sample from them so they would not take it any further. But apparantly, they decided to take it further 14 years down the road.
    Greedy ass people.

    The money from the previous lawsuit probably ran out.

    Must have. Timbaland apparently never really checked deep with who he happened to pay the $100k and now another relative is wanting their share is what I believe is happening.

    Like you said, greed.
    People will try to get as much money as possible off someone who has it, whenever an opportunity shows up. Smh.

    The situation wholly depends on if the sample was legally purchased, and if the rights were actually transferred.
    While a bitch move, they would have a case if it wasn't.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Right. See Timbaland says he paid for the sample, but I'm thinking he bought it from a family member of the guy who originally wrote it who has nothing to do with the rights to the music.
