''I Ain't Even Mad At Dude...''
Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller has issued a response to rapper/producer Lord Finesse filing a lawsuit against him. Finesse claims that Mac used his song without permission, but Mac explains that the two spoke at-length about the track.
Statement below:"I'm supposed to be on hush but lemme speak on this real quick. 1. I made that record and video as nothing more than an 18 year old kid who wanted to rhyme and pay homage, no other intentions. 2. Finesse and I spoke on the phone for an hour after he heard the record and cleared the air. We even planned to work on music together. 3. All I wanted to do is shed light on a generation that inspired me. 5. Finesse never cleared the Oscar Peterson sample on the original record. I did nothing wrong. We spoke on the phone had a good conversation, he was cool with the record. It's all love tho. I ain't even mad at dude. He still a legend. 4. When I heard there was a problem, I reached out to him to try and solve it. No response. Lord Finesse, thank you for what u did for hip hop. Thank you for bringing my favorite rapper into the game."
