Kanye West Hit With $500,000 Lawsuit Over Sample

By  Grandmaster Grouchy Greg Watkins

Hip-Hop star Kanye West is the subject of a lawsuit over an illegal sample contained on a 2006 mixtape.

Robert Poindexter filed a lawsuit against Kanye West in the United States District Court of Southern New York, on March 27.

Kanye is being sued over the song “Girls Girls Girls (Remix)” on the mixtape “Freshmen Adjustment 2.”

Robert Poindexter claims that Kanye’s track contains an illegal sample of the song “Trying Girls Out” by R&B group The Persuaders.

The lawsuit claims that Kanye knew the sample was not cleared, because he used a cleared version of the sample on “Girls Girls Girls” on Jay-Z’s 2001 album The Blueprint.

“I have offered to resolve this matter out of court with Kanye West,” Robert Poindexter said. “But in response, he has refused to even discuss any ‘out-of-court’ resolutions whatsoever. Nor has he provided any evidence that he is demanding others to cease and desist from selling the illegal version.”

Robert Poindexter achieved fame with The Persuaders by singing the 1971 hit song “Thin Line Between Love and Hate.”

Diggy Simmons Launches Diss Track Aimed At J.Cole

by  Slava Kuperstein

Young rapper Diggy Simmons was none to pleased when J. Cole addressed Diggy in a dismissive manner on “Grew Up Fast “: “Move along cocksucker, ain’t got nothing to see / ‘Less you talking blockbuster, you niggas is not Russell / You more Diggy, me? I’m more Biggie / No diss to the young buy, I’m just rapping, get bored quickly.”

In response, Diggy decided to lay it on the line with his new track, “What You Say To Me,” spotted at MissInfo.TV:

“The other day I was listening to Purple Rain / couldn’t believe all of the things that I heard em say / Who dat, who dat, you know who it is / Heard you lying on my sis, tellin people that you hit / When your album drops I’ma hit you with your bricks / So I’ma bomb first on you since you wanna riff / Who you gonna call, you ain’t got no friends / This fight is fixed, you ain’t got no wins / Little nigga named Cole think he live like me / Jet setter trend setter, yeah you not like me / Can’t find a girl that you know that do not like me / Can’t find a girl I know, who know you, you dumb fool / Wasn’t even poppin’ in the school you used to go to.”

Diggy’s reference to J. Cole’s “Purple Rain ” illustrate another facet of the dispute, as Cole referenced Diggy’s sister, Vanessa, on the cut. (HipHopDX)
