Jay Z vs. TufAmeirca Inc.

There's a toll to pay when you "Run This Town," says a new lawsuit brought by TufAmerica Inc. against Jay Z, Roc-a-Fella and Atlantic Records for his 2009 song featuring Rihanna and Kanye West. The filing alleges that Jay sampled Eddie Bo's 1969 "Hook & Sling" multiple times — without clearance — and marks the third time Jay's faced TufAmerica for infringement. The company has sued him twice before (and, notably, has sued West over the same Eddie Bo song — used in a different Yeezy song — in a separate suit).
