Drake Faces Trial For Allegedly Misusing Sample Of Jazz Musician

NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) A jury trial that would determine if Drake misappropriated music of jazz musician Jimmy Smith is reportedly looming, with Drake on the plaintiff’s witness list.

Drake was sued by the estate of Smith and music publishing company Hebrew Hustle in 2014, both of which accused him of using a sample of Smith’s on the song “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2” which, by the way, includes a shout-out to Live Nation chief Michael Rapino.

Hebrew Hustle has provided its witness list and it includes Drake’s name as one of the main people they want to call to the stand, according to The Blast.

Drake has denied the accusations that he has used the song without permission and countersued Hebrew Hustle, claiming it was using his image on its website without his permission, making it appear he worked with the company and endorsed its work.
