Rap legend Jay Z has been accused of stealing rhymes from other rappers. But now a rapper is not only making the allegation against Jay Z - he's providing RECEIPTS!!
JT Money was recently on the Murder Master Music Show where he was asked about the line from his 1992 song All They Good 4, where he says:
"I hate bitches that try to play dumb / I got 99 mutha fuckin problems a bitch ain't one."
"All They Good 4" was released by JT's group Poison Clan in 1992. It was on the same album as Poison Clan's biggest hit song "Shake Whatcha Mama Gave Ya!"
A year later, Ice-T put out the song 99 Problems on T's Home Invasion featuring JT's former labelmate Brother Marquis of the 2 Live Crew. Ice T gave Poison Clam credit on that song.
Then in 2003, Jay-z dropped the song and video for 99 Problems off the Black Album. Unfortunately for JT, he didn't get any credit from Jigga for coming up with the line 11 years prior to it becoming a huge platinum success by Jay.
JT breaks down the timeline of 99 problems
"All They Good 4 the third verse! Then Marquis did the record with Ice-T and then Jay-Z came and did it. I tell people, just check the dates, do your homework and see who did what when."
Back in 2018, a federal appeals court awarded a victory to Jay-Z in a copyright infringement lawsuit claiming that the rapper sampled without permission from an Egyptian composer’s song for his 1999 hit “Big Pimpin’.”
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena, California ruled 3-0 that the nephew of the late composer Baligh Hamdy did not have legal standing to pursue copyright claims over his uncle’s 1957 song “Khosara Khosara.”
Circuit Judge Carlos Bea said the nephew, Osama Ahmed Fahmy, could not sue Jay-Z and hip-hop producer Timbaland solely because Egyptian law recognized an “inalienable moral right” of authors to object to improper uses of copyrighted works.
