Legal Trouble for Common, Kanye, & Method Man

Kanye, Common, and Method Man are in a bit of hot water due to a lawsuit filed by the daughter of late jazz musician Joe Farrell. The $1million suit claims that on Kanye’s “Gone”, Common’s “Chi-City” and Method’s “Run 4 Cover”, Farrel’s music was used without his approval. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court of New York, seeks punitive damages of $1million and asks that no further copies of the songs be made, performed or sold. We will have to wait to see if whether or not the claim will be taken to trial or settled out of court.
