Busta Rhymes Sued Over Lyrics


Busta Rhymes is being sued by veteran rap group The Sugar Hill Gang for biting their rhymes for one of his biggest hits...

From Page Six
Rapper Busta Rhymes has been busted over the lyrics from his 1996 breakthrough hit single. A copyright infringement suit claims Rhymes’ platinum-selling (and quite awesome) “Woo Hah! Got You All in Check” is a rip-off of 1980’s “8th Wonder” by old-school rappers the Sugarhill Gang. The Post’s Bruce Golding reports that the Manhattan federal court filing claims 20 percent of the lyrics in Rhymes’ tune were lifted from “8th Wonder,” which featured Master Gee’s refrain “Dang diddy dang di-dang di-dang diggy diggy,” and Big Bank Hank’s rap, “Woo-HAH! Got them all in check” (which has been sampled by many, including the Beastie Boys). Reps for Rhymes didn’t get back to us.

why is TMZ ASKING WHITE FOLKS ABOUT N WORD? THOSE HOUSE NIGGERS AND FAGOTS MAKE ME SICK. I WANT TO SEE A JEWS OR FAGGOTS WRITE QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR BELIEFS RACE OR RELIGION. TMZ IS NOT THE BIBLE, PAID BY JEWS WHO RUNS HOLLYWEIRD AND THE QUESTIONS ABOUT RACE TO WHITE FOLKS ANSWERED BY WHITE FOLKS IS STUPID. WONDER WHY RACISM IS STILL GOING STRONG!!!!

Didn't Q tip use this on a track on The Low End Theory? Are they suing him. While he's in the litigious mood, Busta should probably sue Nicki for using his Dungeon Dragon line. Rappers take little bits from the classics all the time.

artists have been suing for copyright infringement for years, years later, sometimes the artist is dead and the estate sues. so why all the hate on the sugar hill gang-cuz they're black? no need to go to hate groups black people hate themselves
waiting for the estates of biggie, tupac, and rappers such as ice cube to sue jay-z. jay-z took whole lines and speed them up or slowed them down why no outrage, why hadn't he been shamed for the black album and others he stole lyrics in more than 10 songs? he and his wife are nothing but plagiarizers
