Kanye & Common, Red & Meth Sued Over Samples

kanye-com.jpg

Billboard reports that daughter of Jazz artist Joe Farrell has filed suit against Ye, Com, Red and Meth over an allegedly uncleared sample.

The lawsuit, filed by Kathleen Firrantello in the U.S. District Court in New York, names the rappers along with various labels owned by Universal Music Group.

None of the record companies or representatives for the rappers were immediately available for comment.

The lawsuit said all the rappers used portions of Farrell’s 1974 musical composition “Upon This Rock” in three separate songs — West in “Gone,” Common in “Chi-City” and Method Man and Redman in their song “Run 4 Cover.”

In related but unrelated news, Andrew over at Fake Shore Drive got his hands on the vintage Go Getters album from Kanye, GLC, Really Doe and Arrowstar and he’s going to be posting songs one at a time. Today’s selection is: “World Record Holders.”

    ^^
    That’s a major issue. A lot of producers use so little f the original song that they try to sneak it through without having to tell the label about it. U remember Preemo going off about samples on Moment of Truth?? That’s because backpacker were publishing what samples they use.
