Busta Rhymes Settles Copyright Infringement Lawsuit With The Sugarhill Gang


Busta Rhymes The Sugarhill Gang

The Touch It star was sued by the group in 2012 for allegedly sampling their 1980s song 8th Wonder for his track Woo Hah! Got You All in Check. In the lawsuit, the band claimed 20 per cent of Rhymes' lyrics, including the phrase Woo-Hah, came from their song.

The rapper, real name Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr., hit back at the lawsuit stating the phrase was not unique and was commonly used and could not be copyrighted. He also claimed the lawsuit was out of date because it was filed 16 years after his song was released in 1996. Requesting a consideration of the statute of limitations, he requested the case be dismissed.

However, on 5 October (15), a confidential settlement was reached, according to TheJasmineBrand.com.
