Mary J. Blige, Jay-z Accused of Beat Jacking

Mary j and Jay-Z are targets of a federal song swipping suit filed by two New Jersey men. Jermaine Jumpp and Michael Adams accuse famed producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins of stealing there beat that was used for Blige’s “Enough Cryin”.

They claim they sent a CD containing their song to Jerkins back in ‘01 and were stunned when “Enough Cryin” was released in 2005. Jay got a co-writing credit they got shit. No one knows why this is popping up 3 years later, but it must be hard to reach the lawyers of such famous folk.

My focus would be go after Rodney Jerkins hard body, he the producer not Jay and Mary. I can see why to attack them though, Rodney is a famous producer but you get max attention when Jay and Mary on the headline.

I Like It – Grand Puba

“I hit a flow, all dipped in Lo, sit back and sip Mo, as I count my Dough”  Grand Puba Maxwell put out his second solo album “2000” back in 1995 “I Like It” was the classic single off the album.  Puba had the smoothest style I can’t front, not to mention being a founding member of Brand Nubian, back in the day you had no choice but to check for Grand Puba.  Let’s not forget he practically introduced the hip-hop world to the queen Mary J. Blige on records like “What’s the 411” & “Check it Out”
