Not sure if you remember this but Mac Miller was sued by Lord Finesse in 2012 for using a sample of his track without permission. Lord Finesse had originally sued Mac Miller for $10 million but they ended up settling outside of court. Mac couldn’t speak on what all went down because of legal terms but here’s what he had to say about the situation…
“I’m actually legally not allowed to say anything about what happened. Other than that it’s been resolved and we didn’t go to [trial]. If that was really a problem, people would be getting sued left and right.”
Seems like a lot of people are going after Mac Miller these days for sampling their songs without permission. This time we have a man by the name of Patrick Berlinquette aka “Warm Speakers” suing Mac for sampling his music on the song “The World Around You” which was on Macadellic.
In the complaint, Berlinquette says “[Miller] uses other people’s music because it’s easier, cheaper, and faster than creating his own.” Adding: “Miller seeks to capitalize on the common misconception in Copyright Law that people whose music he takes have no remedy if he gives their music away for free.”
We’ll see how this one plays out since the only real case is that he may have used the song to gain fame since the mixtape was put out for free. Hopefully Mac doesn’t get sued out of his career as he’s already facing another $10 million lawsuit.
We recently reported on the face that Al Capone’s bullet proof Cadillac was being auctioned off, and now his villa in Miami is also for sale for $10 Million. Capone purchased this home at the peak of his gangster career in 1928, back then the house only cost him $40,000… which at the time was a lot of money.
