Drake is being sued for $300,000 over using a sample for his song "Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2" without proper permission. The 35 second monologue at the beginning of the song by jazz musician Jimmy Smith was allegedly used without his permission. According to TMZ, what made the situation even worse is that the liner notes on the album notes say the clip was "properly licensed".
