(EXCLUSIVE) Jay Z Fined By Judge In “Big Pimpin” Lawsuit
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Jay Z is being scolded by a federal court judge for playing dirty legal games and has been slapped a $3,000 fine for his behavior in the legal battle over “Big Pimpin”.
Jay Z has been battling a lawsuit over a sample he used in his hit song “Big Pimpin” since 2007. Osama Ahmed Fahmy – the heir to a 1960’s composer named Baligh Hamdy who created the musical composition ‘Khosara, Khosara” – filed suit claiming he licensed out his fathers son but with a moral clause. He says that clause was violated when Jay Z used it in his song because he had included it in a song that glorified things his father did not stand for in his life.
Jay Z and his label argued they had obtained the right license and did nothing wrong. The legal battle has been going on for years and is still being fought in federal court.
