Blastmaster KRS-One is suing Kanye West for copyright infringement.
The producer, who knows best, tried to pull the fast on a hip-hop pioneer.
According to TMZsampled Boogie Down Productions head “South Bronx” on his song “Life Of The Party” featuring Andre 3000 (who did not agree to be featured in the commercial version of Donda A project because you slandered Drake in his hair.)
Now the song has appeared on the artist’s STEM player as a bonus track Dondabut it still needed to be done right by one of the most famous pioneers of hip hop music.
Yi’s team originally communicated, but the license was never completed. The lawsuit alleges that the two parties did not agree on the song, and when they did not agree to KRS-One’s number, the deal was cancelled.
However, Yi and his partner Alex Klein released the song anyway.
The BDP legal team says Kanye sold about 11,000 Stem players on the first day of release and grossed nearly $2.2 million. They were so bold, according to the lawsuit, that they even promoted the song to boost its sales Donda And the stem player.
This suit is similar to the lawsuit Yi faces for sampling the track of the 1986 Marshall Jefferson home “Move your body” on “Flowers” without permission or compensation.
Yi was represented in the lawsuit by Greenberg Traurig LLP, But the company is trying to bring down the rapper for his anti-Semitic rhetoric and comments he made about George Floyd in October.
It’s best to leave KRS-One alone and give his money away.
