Must Be The Money: Top 10 Frivolous Rap Lawsuits


3. Lord Finesse Sues Mac Miller

Lord Finesse may be a name that means nothing to anyone born past 1991, but he was part of the legendary Diggin’ in the Crates crew (in other words, he’s someone who is, rightly, credited with being a pioneer of the very genre we’re writing about on this website). So you can imagine how well it went over when milquetoast rapper Mac Miller sampled “Hip 2 Da Game” from Lord Finesse for his hit song, “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza”…and didn’t give the legend either his credit or a share of the profits. The song, though, was featured on a mixtape, and Mac (allegedly) never made any type of profit off of the song; nevertheless, he settled with Finesse for an “undisclosed amount.”

    The real “Freeway Ricky Ross” had a legitimate lawsuit against a former corrections officer for stealing his entire indentity, life style, life story and real name. This is fraud to the tenth degree in any level. This self proclaimed “boss” is as fake as a three dolla’ bill! Frivolous lawsuit? Think again HHW!
