Jazz music legend Michael Henderson is suing both Snoop Dogg and Murs and 9th Wonder for illegally using a sample of his music without the proper legal clearance.
Henderson, who has performed alongside the likes of Miles Davis, claims Snoop used a sample from his 1979 album Do It All for the song “Flashback” and the Warzone cut “Hands On the Wheel.” In a separate suit, Henderson is also claiming that 9th Wonder and Murs illegally sampled him on their song “3:16 Pt. 2.”
Henderson is asking that the court award him statutory damages for the infringement and any profits made by the songs. He also wants the court to forbid the artists from further manufacturing, distributing and selling the works in question. Henderson’s full complaint can be found here.
