Tracy Chapman Settles with Nicki Minaj

Three years ago Grammy Award winning folk singer / songwriter Tracy Chapman filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against rapper Nicki Minaj after Nicki and New York radio DJ Funk Master Flex leaked an unreleased song with an uncleared sample of Tracy's smash hit single 'Baby Can I Hold You [click here if you missed that]. 

Nicki and Tracy have settled their dispute...

According to reports Tracy Chapman has agreed to accept the $450k settlement Nicki proposed last December avoiding a court trial. 

Nicki sampled Tracy's song after she specifically denied her request and then used Funk Master Flex to release the song over New York airwaves, while leaving the song off her album.

Tracy should've squeezed her for a milli. $450k is nothing to Donkey Booty. She probably spends that on trashy jewelry for her little gangsta baby.

Glad Tracy was able to collect her coins. Too bad she couldn't get more out Nikki.
