Here we go again: Mac Miller's being sued for $10 million over a sample used on his Macadelic mixtape. The suit was filed by an artist
Carlos Young's insight:

Miller's reasoning on taking on samples is different than any oother reason I've heard. "It's faster and cheaper than creating his own" and since the samples he uses are usually from people who give their music away for free, he thinks it's ok to do.

Mac Miller is one of the artist who openly admits that the art of sampling music is easier for him in this instance. He just didn't get the sample cleared. It was used very well though from my point of view.

Family of David Pryor want royalties for signature, 'get down girl, go 'head, get down' bit.
Carlos Young's insight:
