He used to produce beats for Jay Z, why the fuck would he sue him - I thought they were close.

Good job reading the article.

This is just a lame attempt to cash in off a song made in 1971. Ye already paid you to clear it for the widely successful Blueprint 1 and now you are trying to get him to pay 500,000 for a mixtape. I don't see this holding much ground as it is a mixtape that no money was made off.

Yeah, I was about to ask whether or not that would hold up at all since it was on a mixtape.

I'm not sure how many of Lil Wayne's or Lil B's mixtapes get cleared but I'm going to guess none.

I'm pretty sure if the mixtape was free they don't have a leg to stand on in the case. Frivolous.

Yes because to read Tate's summary and post a sentence takes 3/4 the time of reading an article. Simple.
