Looks like youngster Mac Miller cant’t stay out of legal trouble these days. The “Donald Trump” rapper, who was just featured in this week’s Music Monday, is now being sued for a reported $10 million, for the unauthorized use of a sample for the song Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza, from his 2010 mixtape K.I.D.S. The song featured a sample from Lord Finesse’s 1995 song “Hip 2 Da Game”, and apparently no acknowledgement or consent was given. Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza was the first song I ever heard from Mac, and from watching the video, I knew the kid was going to be a star. It’s just sad to see him go down for something that made him so popular in the beginning.
However, this is not the first time he’s come under fire for this type of thing: Last year in New York City, Mac was accosted by a local producer and crew for the alleged misuse of the beat for Miller’s “La La La”, also from his K.I.D.S. mixtape. You can watch video of that incident here. C’mon Mac, we love you and all, but you gotta start paying for your beats! Supposedly, Mac and Finesse have been chatting over the past few days, but according to the artists’ Twitter accounts, Lord Finesse still plans on suing Mac. How will this all play out? Only time will tell. But listen to the two songs below, and let us know who you think did it better.
