5. Lord Finesse vs. Mac Miller
In the music industry, everything has a price. That’s what Lord Finesse of the legendary Digging In The Crates crew taught Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller after the Mac used a sample from a Lord Finesse track on his 2010 “K.I.D.S.” mixtape. The Golden Era freestyle king hit Miller with an incredible $10 million dollar tab for his use of a sample of “Hip 2 Da Game” made in 1995, which appeared on the “Kool-Aid and Frozen Pizza” track on the mixtape. Even though the downloaded song was free and Miller’s label, Rostrum Records, never profited from the music, Miller and his team still found it necessary to settle the case out of court and hit Finesse off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
