Jay-Z and Timbaland’s ongoing case over the “Big Pimpin” sample continues. The song features an Egyptian sample off a piece named “Khosara, Khosara” made by Baligh Hamdi. When “Big Pimpin” dropped it was revealed that it had previously been used in an Egyptian film, Fata ahlami.
The case will begin trial on October 13th where Jay-Z and Timbaland will both testify. This case has been active for 16 years and is now marked as one of the longest-running active lawsuits. Stay tuned for more details to come.
