George Clinton Seeking Compensation From Black Eyed Peas
Funk legend George Clinton has launched legal action against the Black Eyed Peas over allegations they illegally sampled his classic hit "(Not Just) Knee Deep" on the remix to their single "Shut Up".
Clinton's lawyers filed the copyright infringement suit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on Friday, December 10. In the court papers, the veteran star claims the Black Eyed Peas have cashed in on their 2003 track at his expense, thanks to various remixes released as a result of the chart smash.
Clinton alleges he never agreed to any use of "(Not Just) Knee Deep" by the Black Eyed Peas and he is seeking compensation for the complaint, reports AllHipHop.com.
