Drake Sued For “Pound Cake” Sample

drake-ri

Good God Almighty.

Drake has found himself in another lawsuit, but this time for unauthorized sampling. According to documents, Jimmy Smith’s Estate is suing Drake and Cash Money for $300k for allegedly using the late jazz musician’s monologue on “Pound Cake” without permission. Hopefully, the suit is here today and gone tomorrow.

    300K? Hold up, while Drizzy reaches in his back pocket.

      let these rap guys fool you.

  • jtoven

    No one wants to take a 300k loss, period.

    • datnicca

      espcially jews

  • Davey Allen

    drake whips his ass with that money

    • Swoop

      I think you meant wipe unless you think he whips his own ass

    • xccxc

      that’s probably your sexual fantasy. he probably wipes his ass with it, tho

      • Davey Allen

        no its with your mom, aunt, girlfriend and sister.

    • Joseph Ip

      Drake wipes his ass with dicks

  • ThaRealHater

    Jimmy Smith dont own his own rights. His publishing company does and thats who was paid.

  • PTK

    under these circumstances that seems reasonable

  • mP

    He must have 300K if he has this many accountants on RapRadar, commenting… SMh

    • tipp_-0183 aka Dwight Stewart

      BOL LMAO, right! letting this rap niggas fool them

    • krow132

      he made 10 mill last year according to Forbes, and they pretty reputable

  • Hussle

    People dont do their job @ Cash Money. Why not make sure they sample was cleared in the first place?

    • T

      artist @ YM can do what they want…CM/YM isn’t apart of the creative process, they let them be free…also, how do you know Jimmy Smith owns the rights? Uncle Luke tried to sue French Montana/Bad Boy for “Pop That” but didn’t own his publishing

      • tipp_-0183 aka Dwight Stewart

        Well that would be a reckless way to do business and its hard to believe. I’m sure they had listening sessions prior to the release and I’m absolutely sure there were at least 3 motherfuckers that were like “Yo, ain’t that…”. He probably knew they wouldn’t clear it and premeditated that L.

    300k for an intro sample… not cleared???

    • tipp_-0183 aka Dwight Stewart

      the impact of the song warrants it. that was one of the first songs people skipped too when they saw that Jay feature.

      • Rena

        Jimmy Smith’s intro is everything on that song. His estate probably has no case tho…..publishing company was most certainly paid.

        • tipp_-0183 aka Dwight Stewart

          your opinion. that Jay verse was everything to everyone else though. respectfully, no one even knows who Jimmy Smith is except for you and a couple other people who are familiar with his music.

  • tipp_-0183 aka Dwight Stewart

    I’m sure they had listening sessions prior to the release and
    I’m absolutely sure there were at least 3 motherfuckers in the room that were like
    “Yo, ain’t that…”. He probably knew it wouldn’t get cleared and
    premeditated that L. The song made the impact it needed to make. #Happy300KEaster #Merry300KChristmas

  • Young Fry King

    It’s pretty obvious they cleared it through whomever OWNS the master and publishing… shit it’s credited in the liner notes..

  • gimmemy$$

    am I the only one who thinks its weird for Rap Radar to put up a pic of Drake and Rihanna hugging on a post about drake getting sued?
    most blogs are very pro “aubrih” looks like you fools are no different

  • @djicecold

    “Hopefully, the suit is here today and gone tomorrow.” BHA! Well Done!
