Seems that the show Empire might of went too far with sampling a classic hip hop party song.
According to a report, a publishing mogul, Rasheed Rahan Wonder has teamed up with Doug E. Fresh and songwriter Unique Mecca Hall to officially file a Multi-Million Dollar lawsuit against Fox’s top-rated show, “Empire.”
The lawsuit contends that during season two of Empire, the show sampled the 1993 Doug E. Fresh hit song, “I-Ight” (Alright).
The track was illegally sampled and used in the song “No Doubt About It,” which was performed on episode 3 by Pitbull and Jussie Smollett, as well as featured on “Empire: Original Soundtrack from Season 2 Volume 1.”
Listen to the song in question below.
The song was produced for the show by Timbaland, who was recently replaced as the musical director of Empire after two seasons.
