After already becoming the highest charting female rapper in the UK, getting the most VEVO views for a debut in one day with “Stupid H*e” (the record has since been broken, however), becoming the first female rapper with 7 entries in Billboard’s Top 10 Singles chart and more, the HB can now add another accolade to her list.

As I reported yesterday, rap legend Lord Finesse has decided to bring a $10 million lawsuit against Mac Miller for his 2010 song “Kool-Aid & Frozen Pizza.” The song used the beat from Finesse’s 1995 song “Hip 2 Da Game”, but was a mixtape cut…thus, not sold for money. However, Finesse feels Mac ultimately profited off the song because it “launched” his career and he should pay because he used his beat. Mac took to his Twitter following news of the suit against him, and spoke out against the decision. Mac ultimately said what we’re all thinking: he made the record to pay homage. He even revealed he and Finesse had spoke on it shortly after the record came out and it was nothing but love. He also made a valid point that Finesse never cleared the ORIGINAL sample that’s in the record! Still, Finesse is full steam ahead and took to his Twitter to clarify exactly why he’s doing it. See what he had to say below.
Reverend Jomo K. Johnson hailing from Meek Mill’s hometown isn’t feeling his song “Amen”, feeling that it’s blasphemous, unrighteous, the whole nine. He’s done far more than just speak about the record at his congregation, however. No, that’d be the normal thing to do. Instead, he’s gone on a media crusade to speak about it, even recording his OWN DISS SONG toward Meek. And this is your leader, people? I would NEVER attend this man’s church services! EVER! Yesterday afternoon, things came to a head as a Philly radio station had both parties call in to debate the topic at hand. Needless to say, Meek got pretty amped. Listen to the whole convo below. Who are you riding with in this one?
