Kanye West, Common, Method Man & Redman Sued By Jazz Artists Daughter For $1 Million Dollars

    Kanye West along with fellow rappers Common, Method Man, and Redman were sued yesterday by a late Jazz artists' daughter over a sample they used in various songs by the artists. Kathleen Firrantello, whose father is musician Joe Farrell, filed the suit in a U.S. District Court in New York claiming portions of her father’s 1974 track “Upon This Rock” was used in West’s “Gone,” Common’s “Chi-City,” and Method Man and Redman’s “Run 4 Cover.” Also suing their record companies, she’s seeking $1 million dollars in damages and asking that no further copies of the songs be sold or performed.
