The estate of the late Notorious B.I.G. — who is run by the rappers ex-wife Faith Evans and his mother Voletta Wallace, have filed suit against a man named Leroy Huston. The rep explains that Biggie released a song titled “The What” on his 1994 debut album. He says that 18 years after its release, Huston began a campaign of accusations about Biggie for illegally sampling his song “Can’t Say Enough About Mom” in “The What”. The rep claims that Biggie did use 2 bits of the song but they are not violating any copyright and are both fair use. He also claims that Huston’s campaign holds no merit and he knows Biggie did nothing wrong with sampling his song.

The rep filed suit against Hutson and wants the court to order that no infringement was done by Biggie.
