Lord Finesse Sues Mac Miller For $10 Million Over "Hip 2 Da Game" Instrumental

Post by reneesmith on Thu Jul 12, 2012 12:07 am



Legendary emcee and producer Lord Finesse has filed a lawsuit against Mac Miller for unauthorized use of one of his beats.
Lord Finesse has filed a $10 million lawsuit against Mac Miller for using the former's "Hip 2 Da Game" beat without permission.

Finesse, a member of New York's Diggin' in the Crates Crew
(D.I.T.C.), released "Hip 2 Da Game" in 1995. The song was featured on
Finesse's third solo album, 1996's The Awakening, as a single. It was performed and produced by the Bronx native:



According to Courthouse News Service,
Lord Finesse is suing Mac Miller because of Miller's use of the "Hip 2
Da Game" beat on the song "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza (The Kool Aid
Song)." Miller's song is featured on his mixtape K.I.D.S.: Kickin' Incredibly Dope Shit:



"This is a case about a teenage rapper- Mac
Miller- copying the music from a song written, produced and performed by
Lord Finesse, a hip hop legend, changing the title and then
distributing it under his own name in order to launch his music career,"
states Finesse's complaint.

Finesse says he filed the lawsuit after mixtape-hosting site
DatPiff.com, Miller, and Rostrum Records (Miller's label), refused to
respond to a cease an desist letter earlier in July.
