I guess we have discovered one of the problems that he is also sharing with producer Timberland. Both are facing a copy infringement lawsuit from 81- year old singer, Ernie Hiles, who says he needs his coins from the sampling of his song “Help Me Put Out the Flame9 In My Heart).” Listen below.
Apparently, Ernie believes his song sounds similar to Jay-Z track Paper Chase and R&B singer Ginuwine hit Toe 2 Toe.
With his conclusion for the uncleared sampled of the hits, Hiles attorney is seeking a smooth $2,000,000 for copyright infringement. With a ticket price that high I am pretty sure this is all of the 99 problems for Jay-Z but he is married to a billionaire so this is just couch money.
