He can't seem to stay out of trouble!

T.I., who is currently in a halfway house after doing time for weapons possession, is being sued for copyright infringement!

Rapper Motoe Blizzid is claiming that T.I. used part of his 2004 song "Reverence" in T.I.'s hit track "What You Know."

Blizzid is alleging that the 2006 single has the "same rate of harmonic range" and that they have "nearly identical instrumental melodic lines in terms of pitch, shape, and rhythm."

The rapper is seeking damages and profits received from "What You Know."

Sounds like T.I. might have to pay up!

    This is ridiculous. It's another case of some wanna be trying to cash in one someone else's success. Even if TIP had to pay up to this guy, it wouldn't even leave a dent in his bank account! I can't even find Motoe Blizzid's Reverence song on youtube, so it must be pretty lame. Motoe, just because you can't pay the bills, doesn't mean you can start making things up and trying to trash a Grammy winning song that T.I. won fair and square.

    Could be true, but could also just be a sad attempt to cash in.

    You know what other song has the "same rate of harmonic range" and "nearly identical instrumental melodic lines in terms of pitch, shape, and rhythm." as "What You Know"? It's called "Hey Joe". It's by a little known artist named Jimi Hendrix.

    This is stupid!

    first off u guys have no idea who motoe is,so u should educate urselves before speaking on it,i was at motoe's pad listening to the beat that was sampled from.well before t.i. transitioned from wrapping his lips around a crack pipe to a mic.this has been well known among those lucky enough to be close to motoe.if you have never heard of motoe,he has been in the music industry writing,producing and rapping.search motoe blizzid on youtube,myspace or go to his band site @ nicetie.me
