Did you know that last year, Lord Finesse filed a lawsuit against rosacea-rap pioneer Mac Miller?
No, of course not, you read a blog where they talk about hockey songs—no offense, Megan. You don't know who those people are! As a rule, you people never know what the fuck I'm taking about. I'll proceed, though, for all you exceptions to this rule.
Finesse, a hard-rhyming mainstay of '90s east coast titans DITC (the Diggin' In The Crates crew), sued Miller (to the tune of 10 million!) for using his "Hip 2 Da Game" beat for "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza". Now it seems that Miller has settled with Finesse for an undisclosed amount; this seems to be the fiercest volley in rap's growing intergenerational Cold War. Sayeth Mac's lawyers:
"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."
Gee, what could that reason be? I think Finesse's DITC homies Showbiz & AG might just know:
Boy, I bet Mac thought his days of getting pocket-checked were long gone. This is all enough to make a hard rock smile.
