Jeezy Getting Sued By Famous Preacher

Posted By on September 24, 2014

Famous preacher, author, and film maker, T.D. Jakes claims he is planning on taking legal action against Atlanta rapper Jeezy. Jakes is going after the rapper because of an unauthorized sample on the remix of his “Holy Ghost” track, which features Kendrick Lamar.
Although details are slim, Jakes took to his Facebook page and stated the following:

“SPECIAL NOTICE: The ‘Holy Ghost’ remix by Jeezy featuring Kendrick Lamar was produced without the knowledge or consent of T.D. Jakes, TDJ Enterprises, Dexterity Music or its associated companies. We are taking the necessary legal actions to stop the unauthorized use of T.D. Jakes’ intellectual property.” (AllHipHop)

The sample used in the “Holy Ghost” remix is from a speech the preacher did titled, “Don’t Let The Chatter Stop You.”

“In it, Jakes says, “To tell myself, I’m still on fire. I’m under attack, but I’m still on fire. I got some chatter, but I’m still on fire. I got some threat, but I’m still on fire. I got some liabilities, but I’m still on fire. If it’s not amazing that I’m on fire. I’ve been to hell and back, but I’m still on fire.”” (AllHipHop)
