Jay Z Has 99 Problems And A Lawsuit Is One

Published

Jay Z might have 99 problems and a lawsuit is definitely one.

New York record label TufAmerica Inc. is suing the rapper for allegedly sampling 60’s hit “Hook & Sling Part 1” without permission. According to New York Daily News, the record label filed a suit on Wednesday claiming that Jay illegally sampled Eddie Bo’s 1969 track in his 2009 hit, “Run This Town.”

According to the documents, “Run This Town,” which features Kanye West and Rihanna, allegedly samples the classic jazz song “dozens of times.” The suit reportedly seeks proceeds from “Run This Town” and damages will be determined at trial.

“Hook & Sling Part 1” is clearly a popular song because in September of 2012, TufAmerica Inc. sued Kanye West for sampling the joint on two tracks from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. 

Earlier this week, Jay made headlines after presenting Roc Nations Sport’s Robinson Cano with a $33,900 watch for his birthday. The rapper is under investigation by the Major League Baseball Players Association because according to rules and regulations: “No Player Agent or Applicant shall provide, cause to be provided or promise to provide, any money or any other thing of value to any player, or any person related to or associated with such player, the purpose of which is to induce or encourage such player to use or continue to use any person’s or firm’s services as a Player Agent, Representative, or Draft Advisor.”
