Timbaland & Jay Z’s “Big Pimpin’” Lawsuit Is Headed To Court

After 8 long years, it looks like Timbaland and Jay Z’s lawsuit for “Big Pimpin’” will finally be heading to court. Back in 2006, Egyptian singer Abdel Halim Hafez, who was popular in the 1960s, sued Timbaland and Hov for allegedly stealing his song, “Khosara Khosara,” which was featured on a 1960 film titled Fata Ahlami. “They used it with a song that even by Jay Z’s own admission is very vulgar and base,” explained Fahmy’s lawyer, Keith Wesley. “That’s really why this is so significant to my client. They not only took music without paying. They’re using it in a song that is, frankly, disgusting.” Everyone on behalf of Hafez’ estate is furious because they feel that Jay Z made the song loose it’s value and meaning by adding his degrading lyrics to it. “This case is a perfect example of the importance of the requirement that a copyright owner be afforded the opportunity to consider any potential sublicense of his copyright.”

The most ironic part about the entire lawsuit is that back in 2011 when Hov appeared on “Decoded,” even he himself admitted that he’s disgusted by his extreme vulgar lyrics in “Big Pimpin’” track. “It was like, ‘I can’t believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing? Reading it is really harsh’.”
