The suit states that the case is “about a teenage rapper – Mac Miller -copying the music from a song written, produced and performed by Lord Finesse, a Hip-Hop legend, changing the title and then distributing it under his own name in order to launch his music career.”Robert “Lord Finesse” Hall has also sued DatPiff.com, the website which initially made the mixtape available for download upon its release as well as the independent label of Rostrum Records which signed Mac Miller in 2010.
The viral music video for Mac's “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” has been viewed over 24 million times on YouTube.

Missy Elliot has got a bone to pick with Fox Valley Motor Cars, a car dealership in Florida.
TMZ reports that the rapper/singer is suing the dealership, who she says is holding her newly-purchased Lamborghini captive.
The lawsuit expresses that she formed an agreement with the dealership last year to buy a $376,000 Matte White Lambo Aventador.
Missy claims that she agreed to make a down payment of $30,000 in cash and a trade in of her 2005 Bentley, which is worth $85,000. The dealership was supposed to then ship her the Lambo by mid 2012, however, they never did.
When she followed up with the dealership, she was told the terms had changed as a result of the market value of the car rising and refused to deliver the car.
