Kanye West Has A ‘Gold Digger’ Problem

Published

on

Kanye West is being sued for allegedly using unlicensed samples in his 2005 hit single, “Gold Digger.”

TMZ first reported that the children of deceased musician David Pryor, from the band Thunder And Lighting, filed a lawsuit against the rapper for allegedly sampling a part of the bands 1974 song, “Bumpin Bus Stop.”

Pryor’s two children, Trena Steward and Lorenzo Pryor, claim that 13 seconds into “Gold Digger”, you can hear Pryor singing “Get down” three times, followed by Kanye’s, “Get down, girl. Go head, get down.”

Pryor’s kids are asking a judge for millions of dollars in damages, and to stop sales of the song.

The 70’s hit by Thunder and Lightening might not sound familiar, but many artists have sampled “Bumpin Bus Stop”, including Missy Elliott, Talib Kweli and A Tribe Called Quest.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
