Timbaland Settles Lawsuit

Did ya’ll know that Timbaland was facing a lawsuit regarding “Throw It On Me” from Shock Value? Nope me neither. Seems Tim is facing (another) copyright infringement claim regarding the sample of the song “Spazz” by The Elastik Band that he used in “Throw It On Me.” The Timbaland camp settled with the song’s composer David Cortopassi for an undisclosed sum.

Just for kicks, take a listen to The Elastik Band’s “Spazz”:

And now compare it to Tim’s “Throw It On Me”

Clear them samples Timbo!
