Doug E Fresh Suing Empire Over Music Sample


Rapper Dougie Fresh is suing the hit Fox series Empire, accusing them of using his music without permission...

According to reports Dougie Fresh claims Empire sampled his song I-ight (Alright) for Jussie Smollett's character Jamal Lyons' single 'No Doubt About It' ft. Pitt Bull that was performed on the show last season.

The track was produced by Timbaland, who has since been replaced as Empire's musical director by singer-songwriter Ne-Yo.

Does Dougie have a case?

Pitbull says the hook at 57 seconds. You niggas just type without listening huh? Empire will pay up. Also Dougie is a 30 year vegan which is why he stays slim and looks 30 even though he's damn near 50.

Dougie doesn't have HIV, just a healthy lifestyle and is actual normal weight, no drugs, no drinking, and tons of fresh veggies. Scientologist or not, please don't start HIV rumors about people. It's not funny.

@1:08 - In the history of music, think of ALL the white musicians that have sued for use of "one line" or less. And think of all of the Black musicians that have died penniless because their guitar licks or chords were stolen (see Led Zepplin and all the Black blues musicians they stole from.)

It's all about what's "allowable" under the law and Dougie doesn't and shouldn't have his intellectual property stolen without his permission. He's suing Fox as a company and don't get it twisted that he's suing a "Black" show because the showrunner, producers, and production staff are almost all (who does no favors for and hates Black people anyway.)

Black folks better stop trying to be "nice" and let stuff go all the time and learn to use the law just like white people do.

You want less Police shootings? Sue each individual involved in the shooting down to the police chief in civil court.

You want better schools? Redistrict/rezone the neighborhood and make hood businesses pay their fare share of taxes.

America is all about money and Black folks need to learn to step up and take back what's been stolen, legally.

@2:44 yeeesssss!!!
It's not the "right way"it's the "white way." Shit I had a financial advisor tell me to have my parents name on my kids college savings accounts, that way when I disclose how much I have saved I don't have to disclose that money. They can still be considered for grants and scholarships but would have that cushion that nobody knows about. He said you can get as much assistance they have out there and the kids would still have money to spend. It's a business move people do it all the time.
