It seems to be the fate of all white male hip-hop supastarz to get hauled off to court for copyright violations. In this topsy-turvy time of P2P downloads (mostly of utter shite, but that’s beside the point) w/ © law and infringement so in the faces every man, woman, child, rock-star, pimp, congressman, and wannabe thug out there … how could this possibly slip by until now?
Smells like Vanilla Ice…
There are a few layers of irony here, too. Lessons-learned-unlearned and things of that nature. No real surprises anyway.
Funny, this isn’t an instance where I come down and side with the sampler. Of course, I also don’t much like Eminem.
