“In 2010, Mac Miller recorded himself rapping over Finesse’s music and renamed the song ‘Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza’ (‘The Kool Aid Song’),” the complaint reads (Take a listen to the track below). On Tuesday Mac took to Twitter to tell his side: “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.”
My thing is it was back in 2010, why didnt you say it was a problem then? You want 10million for a song that was free to the public through his mixtape? Anyway, Lord Finesse took to his twitter page as well: “I appreciate Mac’s kind words but his people did not handle his business correctly. 2. Basics – Mixtapes are one thing, but you can’t take someone’s else’s entire song, shoot a music video and call it your own. 3. Mac’s on the top of his game right now. I wish him the best in Europe and I hope to hear from him besides on Twitter.”
“Hip 2 Da Game” (Lord Finesse) around a portion of Oscar Peterson’s 1971 jazz record “Dream of You,” never actually cleared the sample from the original composer.
So what do you think.. Should Mac Miller have to pay 10Million to Lord Finesse?
