One of the legends of the hip hop world, Lord Finesse has filed a $10 million law suit against one of the game’s fastest rising stars, Mac Miller over the unauthorised use of his beat from the track ‘Hip 2 Da Game’, which featured on Finesse’s album ‘The Awakening’, released in 1996.

The Mac Miller song in question is ‘Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza (The Kool Aid Song)’, and was featured on Miller’s mixtape titled ‘K.I.D.S.’ (Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Shit). The mixtape was originally released in 2010 and has been downloaded over 500,000 times. The case, according to Courthouse News Service, states…

“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,”
