Mac Miller’s indie imprint, Rostrum Records, released a statement about Lord Finesse recent $10 Million lawsuit against the young emcee’s use of “Hip 2 Da Game” instrumental for his “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” mixtape track.


There have been a lot of misstatements online and in the press, so we thought it’d be best to make some brief comments. First and foremost, we stand by Mac Miller in this situation and we will fight the case together with him.


Mac never pretended that the “Hip 2 Da Game” beat was his, despite what’s being said in the suit. Lord Finesse was given credit on both the video and the mixtape from the very beginning. We’ve never distributed “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” for sale on iTunes and have consistently policed digital retailers and other sites to make sure that no pirates were ever illegally selling the song.


Lord Finesse has known about “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” for a long time and never objected to the use. For some reason, he has very recently changed his mind.


We look forward to resolving this issue soon, and we appreciate all of the support that we have been receiving from the entire music community.

    If they can’t go rob people of their money on the streets, let’s try to do it the legal way.

    I am by no means a Mac Miller fan…hell, i think the dude is as corny and wack as they come. That aside, Lord Finesse needs to knock this off. This is what Premier called ‘Greedy ass fake bullshit’ back on Moment of Truth. If he had a brain in his head, maybe he would have used this as an oppertunity to make some new Lord Finesse material featuring Mac Miller. Taking this route is just going to make him look like an old rapper who is trying to cash in. There are still MC’s from his era who are still recording and still have an audience. This isn’t going to connect them with him.
