NEWS: Jay-z & Timbaland Copyright Lawsuit Tossed Out

'Hov & Tmbo can breathe a sigh of relief as the 17 year old case of copyright infringement surrounding 1999's UGK assisted "Big Pimpin". The now iconic record featured a looped sample from Baligh Hamdi's "Khosara Khosara". Judge Christina A Snyder dismissed the suit stating that Hamdi's nephew did not have the right to sue on the grounds of copyright infringement.
Though the pair were not present at the hearing, both Jay-Z and Timbaland previously stated that they obtained the rights via EMI Arabia. At the DIGIBUZZ Offices we're playing the video below to celebrate.
