Lord Finesse has slapped Mac Miller with a $10 million lawsuit over an uncleared sampling of his 90′s single, “Hip 2 Da Game” on the track “Kool Aid & A Frozen Pizza”, from his K.I.D.S. (Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Shit) mixtape.


The lawsuit states: “In 2010, Mac Miller recorded himself rapping over Finesse’s music and renamed the song ‘Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza’ (‘The Kool Aid Song’).”


Mac Miller has since responded via Twitter, stating “I made that record and video as nothing more than an 18 year old kid who wanted to rhyme and pay homage, no other intentions. Finesse and I spoke on the phone for an hour after he heard the record and we cleared the air. We even planned to work on music together. All I wanted to do was shed light on a generation that inspired me. Finesse never cleared the Oscar Peterson sample on the original record. I did nothing wrong. We spoke on the phone had a good conversation, he was cool with the record. It’s all love tho. I ain’t even mad at dude. He still a legend. When I heard there was a problem I reached out to him to try to solve it. No response. Lord Finesse, thank you for what u did for hip-hop. Thank you for bringing my favorite rapper into the game.”


Finesse has responded via Twitter, stating: “I appreciate Mac’s kind words, but his people did not handle his business correctly. Basics – Mixtapes are one thing, but you can’t take someone else’s entire song, shoot a music video, and call it your own. Mac’s on top of his game right now. I wish him the best in Europe and I hope to hear from him besides on Twitter.”


We’re not sure what that all means as far as the lawsuit is concerned…..

    I think this Mac Miller guy is a pathetic piece of crap, but unfortunately I have to take his side over Lord Finesse on this one (for reasons mentioned above)

  • Tom says:

    Apparently there is another video going around of some producers confronting Mac Miller over using one of their beats and not giving them credit.

  • Mitch 3K says:

    Finesse should be ashamed of himself

  • Tom says:

    It’s still hard to let go of what Chuck D did. He claimed he didn’t want to be associated with the subject matter of that song, yet he is in a group with Flava Flav. Somebody who is exactly the type of person Chuck D speaks out against. Also, any fan of hip hop will know that is a sample and not Chuck D endorsing the sale of crack. Anybody who can’t tell it’s a sample probably doesn’t listen to much hip hop and won’t even know who Chuck D is. Not to mention the Bomb Squad were masters of sampling.

    Yeah theres a video of these two dudes who claim they produced Mac’s La La La song and he didn’t give ten credit. they came to one of his shows and out front of the venue they got up in his grill. Mac didn’t talk to them and he ran.
