    Kool Aid and Frozen Pizza is available on iTunes for 0.99 dollars, so I guess there's a point to Lord Finesse's lawsuit.

    Forget about the mixtape, one reason he is being sued is cause he made a video to the song and that video has commercial ad's that pay Mac Miller and not Lord Finesse and that video probably has a few million views so i'm sure mac has made some good money off a track that was never his.

    You're right it was from the K.I.D.S. Mixtape from 2010. Wtf Rolling Stone Magazine?!
    There's no reason for Mac Miller to be sued if he wasn't selling the song for money, & gave it away as a free download instead!

    But...it's a mixtape. A free mixtape. As in no money charged for it. Is Lord Finesse an idiot? This is absolutely retarded.

    Also, as Miller suggested in the article: "Finesse [may have] never cleared the Oscar Peterson sample originally used to craft 'Hip 2 Da Game.'"

    I think it's an old tale that's back in the news again. The Beastie Boys, for instance, had numerous law suits filed against them for their many samples of legendary songs.

    The only way for an artist to be sure of receiving the most profit from a song (keeping it law suit free), is to keep it sample free.

    The beloved genre of Hip-Hop is deeply rooted in sampling (often blues & soul beats, such as The Funky Drummer by James Brown). Many hip-hop songs that listeners, such as myself, describe as 'gems' couldn't have been created without sampling.

    So glad Mac Miller's 'Cool Aid & Frozen Pizza' led me to find this absolute gem
