The Song JAY Z Allegedly Stole “Big Pimpin” From (VIDEO) via @lisafordblog

HollywoodReporter.com writes, “Now in its eighth year, the long-running litigation over whether Jay Z rightfully sampled an Egyptian tune in his hit single “Big Pimpin'” is getting closer to resolution. With the trial scheduled for Oct. 13, the judge on Monday indicated she’d likely deny Osama Ahmed Fahmy’s motion for summary judgment against the rapper.

Fahmy’s lawsuit centers on the composition “Khosara, Khosara” from the 1960 Egyptian film Fata ahlami, which Jay Z and Timbaland (who is a co-defendant) turned into the unmistakable hook of the rapper’s 2000 single. Fahmy claims he’s an heir of “Khosara Khosara” composer Baligh Hamdy and sued the rapper for copyright infringement, also naming Paramount Pictures, Warner Music, UMG and MTV among the defendants.”
