Jay Z Sued Over “Run This Town” Sle

jay z runIn this day and age people are still getting sued over sles? That was a rhetorical question. According to New York Daily News, a record label entitled TufAmerica, representing deceased R&B artist Eddie Bo has filed a copyright claim against Jay Z for allegedly using Bo’s 1969 funk single “Hook & Sling Part 1″ without permission.  The label is alleging the sle appears in Jay Z’s 2009 Grammy-winning single “Run This Town,” which featured Rihanna and controversial ranter, I mean rapper/producer Kanye West. I’m kidding about the ranter thing..kind of.Back to the lecture at hand.  TufAmerica has a history of filing sle-related lawsuits against hip-hop music artists. Just last year,  the label sued Kanye West for using a sle from the same song on his 2010 record “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” They also filed lawsuits against The Beastie Boys and Christina Aguilera as well.I need to go listen to their catalogue because apparently they made some hot records.
