Jay-Z Going To Court Over “Big Pimpin'” Lawsuit

    As we previously reported, Jay-Z and a slew of other parties — from Timbaland to MTV — have been sued because a sample in Hov’s hit single “Big Pimpin'” was never cleared. And now it appears that the copyright case will indeed go to trial, according to Yo Raps. One of the main issues at hand is whether or not Jay profited from performing the track in concert, though a judge made it clear it’s not exactly plausible to know if he performed it at every show. What is in question is if his “concert revenues should be considered direct or indirect,” US District Judge Christina Snyder said. She added that it will be up for a jury to decide.
