First it was Lord Finesse, now Donald Trump is aiming to stick Mac Miller for his paper.
The billionaire, right wing real estate mogul is now aiming to possibly sue the Rostrum Records rapper for using his name on the single “Donald Trump” after it had amassed close to 75,000,000 hits on YouTube.
“Little Mac Miller, you illegally used my name for your song “Donald Trump” which now has over 75 million hits,” Trump tweeted on his account recently. “Little Mac Miller, I want the money not the plaque you gave me! I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog!”
It isn’t exactly clear what provoked this sudden change of heart from Trump after publicly co-signing the video over a year ago on his personal YouTube account. “In one way I’m proud of him, I haven’t exactly seen the language. It’s a little bit hard to understand on the song itself. Probably it’s not the cleanest language I’ve ever heard, but this kid is the new Eminem. Everyone says he’s fantastic, so let’s see what it is,” Trump said in the 2011 video. “I’m very proud of that.”
So why did Trump suddenly change his tune? Who knows, but the timing couldn’t be any rougher for Miller, who just recently settled a sampling dispute with Lord Finesse over a song called “Kool-Aid and Frozen Pizza.” A legal truce was reached last month with the Southern District Court of New York presiding over the matter.
