Mac Miller Responds to Lord Finesse 10 Million Dollar Lawsuit

Posted By on July 11, 2012

DITC member and old school legend Lord Finesse sounds off and files a lawsuit on Mac Miller for $10 million.

Lord Finesse is suing Mac Miller because of Miller's use of the "Hip 2 Da Game" beat on the song "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza (The Kool Aid Song)." Miller's song is featured on his mixtape K.I.D.S.: Kickin' Incredibly Dope Shit.

"This is a case about a teenage rapper- Mac Miller– copying the music from a song written, produced and performed by Lord Finesse, a hip hop legend, changing the title and then distributing it under his own name in order to launch his music career," states Finesse's complaint.

Mac Miller who wasnt supposed to speak public on the issue took to twitter to explain his stance.

I'm supposed to be on hush but lemme speak on this real quick. 1. 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. 2. Finesse and I spoke on the phone for an hour after he heard the record and cleared the air. We even planned to work on music together. 3. All I wanted to do is shed light on a generation that inspired me. 5. 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. 4. When I heard there was a problem, I reached out to him to try and 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.
