Could This Be True?? According to TMZ, theres a lawsuit filed against Drake for the song "Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2" which features Jay-Z. The song begins with a 35 second monologue from a 1982 song "Jimmy Smith Rap Song" by Jazz musician Jimmy Smith. The crazy thing is he gave credit in his liner notes that sample was properly used. Although Jimmy is no longer with us, his estate claims no permission was ever granted. YIKES! The estate is holding Drake, Cash Money, and a few others accountable-- asking for more than 300K.
