Lord Finesse Issues Statement Regarding Mac Miller Lawsuit

Lord Finesse says that he never wanted to pursue legal action, but felt obligated given the circumstances.

Lord Finesse has issued a statement regarding his $10 million lawsuit against Mac Miller over the unauthorized use of his track "Hip 2 Da Game" for a 2010 mixtape cut.

In the statement, the Hip Hop veteran explains that the issue lies beyond sampling. “I love mixtapes but this is different. And it’s not a sample," stated Finesse. "Mac didn’t take a piece of music and create something new. He didn’t transform it into something other than what it was. He just dropped the needle on my record and changed the title.”  

Finesse insists that he did not give permission to Mac to use the song. He says that he's seeking "proper credit and compensation," and that he attempted to resolve the situation and never wanted to pursue legal action.

“Permission was never given. A lot of money was made on my song," he continued. "At the end of the day, I only stepped to these people for proper credit and compensation. I have done a lot of great things in hip hop and I never wanted a lawsuit. Never. I made every attempt to resolve this. But, when I reached out to these people their attitude was I should be grateful Mac was using my music to sell out concerts because it keeps me relevant. How does it keep me relevant if I’m not being credited or compensated? You’ve heard Mac, you’ve heard a portion of it from me. The truth will come out in court.”

    This smells like desperation from LF. I'm a big fan of his but he's making himself look foolish. It's a mixtape people. Maybe LF doesn't know about the mixtape game but that's how the business works nowadays. It's the same concept as sampling. At least mixtape rappers don't release it for-profit. For all of you saying that he plays it live therefor LF is owed money. Here's my counter-argument, how about DJ's playing other people's songs at clubs? Should they get sued as well? Ya'll sound like the people behind SOPA/ACTA

    • Rapper Noyd

      ..and ya'll sound like a bunch of know it all morons who don't know shit about hip hop. Mac jacked Finesse's whole track and made loot off it. Then told Finesse he should be grateful? lol

  • Phuc.Finesse

    So is finesse going to use this 10 mill to pay back the Blue Note artists he stole from for his latest Blue Note mix CD? Fucker was selling them for $35 a pop. Who's the real asshole here? FUCK FINESSE!

    Mac should just be happy this isn't 1994 or some gully shit would happen to the kid for beat jacking like this. Sampling is one thing, straight recording over the whole beat is something else.

    People kill me with the relevant talk. Finesse is a legend, he has nothing to prove to anybody and he still has fans from way back. Rewind 3 years half of you temporary stans were team Gucci Mane, rewind 5 Soulja boy, rewind 7 d4l or franchize boys, 10 Nelly who riding with next? Lord Finesse DITC or any legendary mc has fans for life because they put out music that's still dope enough to listen to 10 18 years later. You may like some rapper now but if it was strictly underground as it once was you probably would just listen to r&b and call hip hop a fad.

    This what I think happen, Lord Finesse gave Mac the ok to use it thinking it wasn't going to blow up like it did. Once he saw he made decent money from it, Lord Finesse was like dam! I fucked up, let me sue this cat! I'm a legend im sure they will beleive me! Another questions for Lord Finesse, Why didn't he say anything when it first came out? Answer, Because he hadn't make that money yet! Up until now, smdh at Finesse!

      Mac is known for stealing beats, this isn't anything new. Mac is just finally learning a lesson in business, this shit happens all the time. Mac got away a few times in the past, this time it's caught up to him.

      If that was true then why didn't Finesse do that when they paid him a tiny bit for some "intro" sampling on Fatboy Slim's Rockefeller Skank, when the Finesse sample ended up being the whole damn track (which blew up). Also, to sue for this kind of stuff you have to show they used the work for gain of somesort (ie launching Mac's career, Youtube advertising, etc.) so until they did that there's no reason to sue.

    Guru R.I.P. said it best "I bet you couldn't name more than one pioneer Cause you didn't pay dues and you got on outta nowhere" Understand the Culture of Hip Hop and some of its principles. Some of you guys that comment on here are not fans yall are keyboard gossipers. I respect to young artist of today, but do the knowledge on the very culture you say you love. That Guru quote applies to at least 90% of these new artists and its probably even a higher percentage.

    All you dropouts need to recognise that any use of copyrighted material without permission is a strict and clear breach of the law. No one cares that Mac is not the only one to do this, I hope Finesse gets his dues because he reserves the right to decide who uses his OWN intellectual property.

    It's one thing to use it on a mix cd. BUT to do a video with it? WHen did an emcee ever use another persons beat from a mix cd and do a video??!! Never. He gave no credit and let the illusion slide that it was his original track.

    This suit is crazy. What Mac did is something every rapper does when they are nowhere. and thats exactly where he was when he made this song. Now that he is big it becomes an issue. He doesn't even have near 10 million.

  • Anonymous

    This is just silly. LF has sampled a bunch of people's music before and I doubt he got every sample cleared AND he got money off of it, unlike Mac Miller's K.I.D.S mixtape. And while I agree sampling is skillful and it can show talent, you're still taking someone else's piece of music to make your own. No I am not a Mac Miller fan.

    • shwang

      LF doesn't have a case here since his instrumental didn't get released for profit. Also, for everyone saying that "well MAc Miller performed it live so he owes LF money" anyone can perform whatever they want at shows. They don't need any clearance whatsoever.

      yea so in that case Finesse should have gotten at Mac two years ago when KIDS dropped and asked him for a shoutout and proper credit on the track... Not turned around and sued him for 10mil.

    Todays young hip hop fans judge by how much they make and their age, cant really blame them, they have that pop culture embedded in them, thats how MTV n shit have raised them, older heads were all about being innovative, original, creative and just havin fun and putting out a message, how times have changed.

  • Assassin221

    Idk the details, I don't listen to Mac and never heard the song, I thought it was pretty common practice though to borrow other beats on mixtapes though. But regardless, 10 mil? That's just fucking retarded. http://www.soundcloud.com/anarchy12

  • B

    I don't understand the basis of Lord Finesses' lawsuit. Mixtapes ALWAYS use other peoples beats, not just samples of them - but you don't need to clear a copyright if you're not making profit of it. Perhaps he made indirect profit from the publicity he gained from his K.I.D.S mixtape, but you can't say Mac Miller has X amount of dollars because of the song Kool Aid and Pizza. I'm surprised no lawyer hasn't just ended this unless there's something I'm missing. To someone else post - does the Pharcyde (or really the Dilla estate) sue Wiz Khalifa for using the beat of runnin' on the song Name on a Cloud? This happens on every single mixtape INTENTIONALLY. I even remember a quote by Big K.R.I.T in reference to one of his mixtapes stating how, despite the fact that people said it plays like an album and could be one "there's no way he could clear all those samples" - but its ok, because its a FREE mixtape.

    • Anonymous

      co-sign the first nigga. if you could get 10 mil out of every time someone uses your beat on a free mixtape, A-Plus of Souls of Mischief would be the richest man in the world

    • Dirty

      Whether you're making money or not, it's illegal to use copyrighted material without proper clearance. This isn't well known because if you're not making money from it, it's usually not pursued in court. But cease & desist letters are very common.

  • NY

    About time some legal action was taken against Mac Miller, all he does is steal beats from the 90's and claim them as his own. The Pharcyde should also look into this for their song "Runnin'" I don't know the name of Mac Miller's song on this beat but it's directly taken from them also without changing anything to the beat.

    • OP

      By not giving credit for the beat, he is giving the illusion that he made it. Miller has been stealing beats and doesn't give credit where it is due. Of course part of it may have to do with the company he's under as well....You do realize (Miller) performs these songs at concerts and makes money....Artists make money at concerts too.

    • ac

      To clarify to your dumb ass, Mac doesn't take these beats and claim them as his own. He released a MIXTAPE wit A finesse beat on it, while he never gave credit to finesse he also never tried to give the illusion that it was somethin he produced, or jerm, or whoever. get a clue

This is more of Finesse gettin at the label that is making money off something from his discography. I got nuttin against Mac Miller either. This is business at the end of the day. Those of you hatin on Finesse for this move obviously do not understand how the business aspect works. and those talkin that "old man" ish need to grow up and be a man first before you talk smack over the net.

      Don't need to be Lord fineses accountant to know the basics, but feel free to expand on why someone who is obviously a real fan can't make an evaluation and be critical of the situation of an underground legend without being told to SHUT UP. Take Jat z for instance right, everyones an expert on Jays finances and business ventures. So when it comes to vouching for the underdog and not falling in line with the rest of the flock and following pop culture it's to be frown on and disrespected immediately, your contempt for the realness shows clearly and obviously have no business commenting in on hip hop at any time!

There are ways to handle things, and I bet if he met up with Miller face to face this could be handled the right way. Such as have Miller do a song off an upcoming Finesse project. Or have Miller admit he jacked it and put the video on-line.

      Alright homie, i see you, along with a bunch of mac miller fans are upset that finesse is taking action but what ya'll fail to realize is THIS ISN'T PERSONAL. Finesse has already stated that he has contacted them about this issue before, and they continually disrespected him by saying "he's lucky". Not for nothing Finesse ain't no wet behind the ears producer, the man has contributed to almost every major hip hop release including Notorious BIG's "Ready To Die" and Dr. Dre's "2001". Just because MTV only promotes bullshit music and you never got the chance to really understand the man's legacy, that is no reason to diss like this will affect you. Mac Miller will not lose 10 million dollars, but he def got caught doing something he has been accused of before. In fact, the first time i heard of him was due to a couple young producers who claimed he had stole their material. Not a good look. THE PRODUCERS ARE THE TASTEMAKERS AND TRENDSETTERS!! Mac has been very respectful regarding this lawsuit, but I'm sure it's because he knows Finesse will son the shit outta bol. Finesse ain't no slouch!! He got bread!!

  • Really!?!?!?!

    the problem with these young rappers these days is they think they can just forklift a whole beat and call it their own. Lupe tried to pull this shit a few weeks ago with Pete Rock's T.R.O.Y. beat. These kids don't want to invest any time into their craft anymore. they just think they can use someone else's work and call it their own. It just doesnt work like that! 10-15 years ago these wack rappers would have been ridiculed for this kind of shit. There's really no excuse for this type of wack ass behavior.

      @Andrew A real fan would of hip hop would know Lord Finesse's song "Hip 2 da Game" and think of that first before thinking of Mac Miller's version. By the way I'm 20 and I blame the kids for not recognizing the song because they don't respect the older rappers like I do. They think anything before their time has to be horrible cause you think things would progress but it's not true at all, today is the worst rap you will ever hear.

      Question, how do you know that the sample hasn't been cleared? Just because Mac said it doesn't mean it's true. Mac probably just said that out of speculation anyway. And if the sample wasn't cleared, then Oscar Peterson (who's dead btw) would've sued Finesse a long time ago, and "Hip 2 Da Game" would've been removed from the album.

      Lord Finesse is entitled to compensation when ever Mac Miller performs that song- period. And to tell you the truth, I didn't hear of Mac Miller until he laced that instrumental. And promotion ain't free. Labels/Artist have a promotion budget, in regards to mixtapes, to pay producers and features. And the shit might be a tax write off - not sure.

  • Go

    More Power To Lord Finesse

  • Mike Love

    not surprising considering Mac has stolen unknown producers beats from e-mails, made tracks and videos for those songs, and posted them on YouTube without even crediting the songs producer. Whether it's 10,000 views or 10 million, you should always credit the producer. Especially if it's just mixtape work and they most likely won't get credit in any other form.

    • Gibberish

      Freddie Gibbs didn't give credit to Milkbon for his version of the song "The Ghetto" which also has surpassed 700,000 views on YouTube. Who knows he may have gotten permission from Milkbone's estate.

    • IDK

      Mac Miller's "On Some Real Shit" currently has around 700,000 views, but the beat used for that song was taken from Miilkbone's "Keep It Real." Mac didn't credit, or at least shouted out, Miilkbone nor producer Mufi in that song.

  • RC

    Finesse is always on top of his buisness and I'm glad he made it clear that droppin a needle and ripping off classic tracks is NOT sampling! I think mac and the people handling his biz are gonna get a nice slice of humble pie, and they should probably leave room for seconds.
