Mac Miller Rostrum Records Releases Statement in regards to Lord Finesse lawsuit against the Pittsburgh rapper. As we previously reported, Finesse filed a $10 million lawsuit against Miller, Datpiff and Rostrum Records after Miller sampled his song “Hip 2 Da Game” for his record “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza.”
Rostrum Records has just released a statement regarding the lawsuit defending Miller. Check that out below.
There have been a lot of misstatements online and in the press, so we thought it’d be best to make some brief comments. First and foremost, we stand by Mac Miller in this situation and we will fight the case together with him. Mac never pretended that the “Hip 2 Da Game” beat was his, despite what’s being said in the suit. Lord Finesse was given credit on both the video and the mixtape from the very beginning. We’ve never distributed “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” for sale on iTunes and have consistently policed digital retailers and other sites to make sure that no pirates were ever illegally selling the song. Lord Finesse has known about “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” for a long time and never objected to the use. For some reason, he has very recently changed his mind. We look forward to resolving this issue soon, and we appreciate all of the support that we have been receiving from the entire music community. Thank you, Rostrum Records.
