"One phone call will have ya body dumped in Marcy"

Welcome to the rap game...featuring, THE GAME! Suit filed yesterday in SDNY for copyright infringement arising from defendants -- rapper the Game, his label Universal/Interscope, his publishers -- unlawful use of plaintiff's original "music compositions." OTCS can picture the plaintiffs sitting, feather pen in hand, scribing the score on sheet music! Yeah right...probably put together some hooks, samples, and mixed it all together. But what does OTCS know? Who has the inside scoop?

Fact is: if you are going to work in the music industry, especially rap & hip-hop, get everything in writing! Otherwise, your boy will start playing games on you...
