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

Posted By on May 23, 2008

    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.

    Kim Scott is still abusing me. I am not friends with her sisters nor cousins either. She abuses Marshall too, and Isis, and etc.

    I hope Kanye gets better, by the way. What a tough time of year for him. <3 Kim West K.

    oops, wrong person. My mistake. Not Kim Scott. I think its her sister. Maybe.

  • Congratulations on the newest addition to The West family.
