Timbaland, Jay-Z Sued Over 'Big Pimpin' Sample
Thursday, September 6, 2007
By: Kenny Rodriguez

Timbaland faces yet another lawsuit over uncleared samples – the Virginia producer is now being sued over a Jay-Z hit single recorded nearly a decade ago.

According to a Los Angeles lawsuit, Timbaland allegedly sampled from an obscure Middle Eastern record to produce the popular song, “Big Pimpin,” which features Jay-Z and Houston duo UGK.

Osama Admed Fahmy claims to be co-owner of the song “Khosara, Khosara,” recorded in 1957 by Egyptian musician Abdel Halim Hafez, and accuses Timbaland of lifting a portion of the song without copyright permission.

“Big Pimpin” was originally released on Jay-Z’s 1999 LP, “Vol. 3: Life & Times of S. Carter,” only to be re-recorded five years later alongside rock band Linkin Park on the mash-up EP, “Collision Course.”

Jay-Z, Timbaland, Linkin Park, and EMI Music Inc. are among those named as defendants in the lawsuit.

Timbaland – whose production often borrows from Middle Eastern and Hindustani genres – currently faces a separate lawsuit by recording house Saregama India.

The company, which owns nearly 50% of the music released in India, claims the hit producer illegally sampled one of their records for the 2005 song, “Put You On The Game,” recorded by The Game.

Caught up to ya timmy, i'm starting to question if he ever had any of those samples cleared.....DJ Paul & Juciy J would be in the same boat if they ever reached Timbo's Super Producer status.

He'll get hit for copyright infringement, if they can prove it. But it'll get settled out of court.

Tim has more than enough money to handle it and not be bothered.

I hope Tim wins too, who in America would listen to Indian or egyptian music?..My point exactly.


Tim>> Scott

It's not Tim's job to clear the sample Jay should of done it he knows Timbo samples besides the dude late as hell, their should be like a time limit on that or something, unless this article is old.

you guys really don't know anything.

Tim sampled it and probably tried to clear it and went ahead anyway for two reasons:
1:he thought they wouldn't notice
2:An indian record company WOULD NOT EVER let a sample be cleared for a song about s3x and hos, do you all not know anything outside your neighborhood?

samples don't get cleared all the time, it's not just an ask and ok go procedure

and no Jay's not gonna go around clearing samples, be real, you think a rapper is gonna do extra paperwork?
