Lord Finesse Suing Mac Miller, Rostrum Records for $10 Million

Digging in The Crates founder and producer, Lord Finesse is suing Mac Miller, the Rostrum Records label he is signed to and for $10 million for reportedly using the beat to his 1995 song “Hip 2 the Game.”

According to AllHipHop, the $10 million lawsuit alleges “copyright infringement, unfair competition, unjust enrichment, interference,” amongst several other claims, and was filed in a New York federal court on Monday (July 9).

Mac’s “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” from K.I.D.S. samples Finesse’s “Hip 2 the Game.”

Robert “Lord Finesse” Hall has also sued, the mixtape website which initially made Mac’s offering available for download.

Mac’s “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” counts over 24 million views on YouTube, while his K.I.D.S. mixtape has been downloaded over 500,000 times.

Miller has enjoyed great success over the past few years.

The indie rapper’s first album, Blue Slide Park, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last November after moving 144,000 units.

That charting marked the first independently-distributed debut album by an act to reach No. 1 since 1995, according to Billboard.

More recently, named Mac Miller the top independent rapper.—Jakinder Singh
