It’s lawsuit season!
This lawsuit against Mac Miller is very similar to one Jay Z recently faced. In both instances the rappers blatantly used songs by older artists without permission.
TMZ reports that Mac Miller has been sued by 70s band Aquarian Dream. They say Miller took their song “Yesterday (Was So Nice Today)” and used it in his track “Therapy”. Aquarian Dream’s Jacques Burvick says Miller’s rep admitted to the theft. According to Burvick, the rep said they tried to contact Aquarian Dream, but decided to use the song without permission when they didn’t hear back.
