Mac Miller Speaks to Lord Finesse, But $10 Million Lawsuit Still On

A good conversation between two quarrelling people can lead to a truce.

That’s not the case with Mac Miller and Lord Finesse, however. Mac took to his Twitter account on Wednesday night (July 11) to tell his faithful following that he and Finesse spoke, but that the results remain the same.

“I just talked to Lord Finesse,” Mac tweeted. “He’s still suing me. To my fans, don’t be disrespectful. Finesse is a legend. If you have a problem with his actions be intelligent about it and be respectful.”

Earlier in the day on Wednesday news broke about Finesse suing Mac and Rostrum Records for $10 million for sampling his “Hip 2 Da Game” record on Miller’s, “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” from his K.I.D.S. mixtape.

Finesse has also sued mixtape website for distributing Mac’s offering for download.

After hearing the news, Mac tweeted out five bullet points to why he sampled the cut in the first place.

“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,” Mac added. “2. Finesse and I spoke on the phone for an hour after he heard the record and cleared the air. 3. We even planned to work on music together. 3. All I wanted to do is shed light on a generation that inspired me. 4. When I heard there was a problem, I reached out to him to try and solve it. No response. 5. Finesse never cleared the Oscar Peterson sample on the original record. I did nothing wrong. We spoke on the phone had a good conversation, he was cool with the record. It’s all love tho. I ain’t even mad at dude. He still a legend.”

Despite the conversation they had later that day, the lawsuit is still on.
