    This article would be better if it included a PDF of the complaint Lord Finesse filed, as a sidebar. Update this article with that, please.

    The way Mac and his team tried to handle the situation was extremely unprofessional. I hope they sue him for every last penny.

    pay the man or just use something else…..its that simple……Its business nothing personal!…get your mind right and sample with your checkbook out….

      Why should he pay the man for using a sample that wasn’t cleared? It’s like your neighbour asking for money as his house was made of bricks first!

  • TruthBeTold

    lord finesse should not be praised for anything. what he is doing now is strictly for own personal gain, not for hip hop or the community or anyone else. people would understand if mac sold the record and made a commercial profit but he didnt.. he gives his music away for free ? the only money made from that song wouldve been touring, and even then producers don’t make commission in the first place when it comes to touring. long story short, lord finesse is just another rat, and clearly has no love for the game.. most likely dudes just running out of money.
