Mac Miller Release’s Email On $10 Million Lawsuit
Lord Finesse recently filed suit against Mac Miller for a whopping $10 million, due to Mac using one of his instrumentals illegally. Well it seems that even against his legal teams advice Mac could not help himself from releasing a statement.
Mac Miller says he wasn’t supposed to speak on the issue, but he decided to take to Twitter earlier yesterday to speak out on the suit.
On his tweets, Mac explains that he thought everything was gravy with Finesse since they had allegedly spoken with one another an hour after he heard the record and “cleared the air.”
Also Mac claims that when he heard there was an issue, he reached out to Finesse to smooth it over but he was met with silence. (So I guess he is calling Finesse a liar!)
Finesse initially claimed that he sent a cease and desist to DatPiff, Miller and Rostrum Records in early July but was never given a response.
Check out Mac’s full response below:
I’m supposed to be on hush but lemme speak on this real quick. 1. I made that record and video as nothing more than an 18 year old kid who wanted to rhyme and pay homage, no other intentions. 2. Finesse and I spoke on the phone for an hour after he heard the record and cleared the air. We even planned to work on music together. 3. All I wanted to do is shed light on a generation that inspired me. 5. Finesse never cleared the Oscar Peterson sample on the original record. I did nothing wrong. We spoke on the phone had a good conversation, he was cool with the record. It’s all love tho. I ain’t even mad at dude. He still a legend. 4. When I heard there was a problem, I reached out to him to try and solve it. No response. Lord Finesse, thank you for what u did for hip hop. Thank you for bringing my favorite rapper into the game.
