Drizzy Drake may have another lawsuit on his hands. According to TMZ, he’s being sued over the opening monologue on his Nothing Was The Same track, “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2.”

The Jay Z-assisted cut samples the 35-second blurb from jazz musician James Oscar “Jimmy” Smith’s 1982 song, “Jimmy Smith Rap.” Smith’s estate — he died in February 2005 — claims that despite the album’s liner notes, no one asked for permission, so technically no permission was granted.

Further details are scarce right now, but allegedly they’re asking for more than $300K.
