Dolby Attacks Federline Over Sample

Eighties synth-pop star THOMAS DOLBY is gearing up for a comeback by firing off at BRITNEY SPEARS' husband KEVIN FEDERLINE over an illegal sample. The HYPERACTIVE hitmaker was staggered when he discovered Federline had sampled his SHE BLINDED ME WITH SCIENCE megahit without permission. Federline posted the track on his www.myspace.com page, naively thinking the sample was from a MOBB DEEP tune. Dolby, who is on the verge of playing his first live shows for 15 years, has since pointed out that Mobb Deep originally had to clear the sample with him. Dolby fumes, "VANILLA ICE is a superstar compared to this guy." Federline has since pulled the track from www.myspace.com.
