Wow! We've lost count how many times this has happened now!
George Clinton, a legend in funk music, is suing The Black Eyed Peas for allegedly sampling one of his songs on their track, Shut Up.
The song was first featured on their 2003 album, Elephunk, but has spawn several remixes since then, including one that appeared on the deluxe edition of The E.N.D. album. According to Clinton's lawsuit, the group used elements of George's song (Not Just) Knee Deep on this remix.
As he insists that he never granted the group permission to use the song, he's suing will.i.am and Fergie, along with Universal Music Group for copyright infringement damages and an injunction to block further sales of the remixes.
We hate to break it to them, but George does have a point. The remix does sound a lot like his funky hit.
Take a listen to George's song and The Peas remix (above) and tell us what U think? Does George have a case?
