70s R&B group SUING Justin Timberlake’s record label for “Suit & Tie” sample 

LAWSUIT & TIE SH**..

 
Your mans Justin Timberlake his “Suit & Tie” collaborator, Jay-Z, are being legally hemmed up by a 70s R&B group who claimed the Hip-Hop duo unlawfully sampled their music for the 2013 hit track. 

 
OOOP…

CATCH THIS MESS…

Two members of singing group, Sly, Slick and Wicked, filed a lawsuit against Mr. JT’s record label, Universal Music Group, for its failure to receive the rights to use vocals from their 1973 James Brown produced smash, “Sho’ Nuff,” which were sampled on “Suit & Tie.”

SMFH….

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE…

 
According to TMZ, the SS&W guys say they also didn’t get paid when UMG licensed “Suit & Tie” for a Bud Light commercial.

 
The 70s group members point out that Justin’s song was HUGE — 3 million copies sold, and 92 million YouTube views — and they want their cut of the COIN. 

 
The “Sho Nuff” crooning fellas are gunning for dough from UMG, Anheuser-Busch, and other publishers and producers of the track.

 
BLOOOP AND BLOOOP.

 
So far, neither Justin not Jigga have made any comments about the lawsuit. 

 
THOUGHTS??
