Ghostface Killah lawsuit

Tony Starks in action
My favorite general of the Wu-Tang Clan, the one and only Ghostface Killah, is being sued by an angry music composer over a sample contained on Ghost's legendary album Supreme Clientele from more than a decade ago. Jack Urbont is suing Ghost and Sony Music for copyright infringement because samples (re: the entire thing) of the "Iron Man theme" from Marvel's 1960's Iron Man cartoon which he composed are featured on Supreme Clientele's intro and outro tracks.

I think it's lame that the dude waited oh eleven years to launch this law suit. Talk about opportunism. If anyone should be pissed it's Marvel Comics since Ghost has been on an Iron Man kick FOREVER (one of his many aliases is Tony Starks for crying out loud). But no, Marvel doesn't care and in fact, Ghostface even had a cameo in the first Iron Man but got cut to due to the film's running time.

Copyright or not, Urbont is douche. I'll be blasting Supreme Clientele when I'm 90.

  1. I have a feeling that Mr. Urbont is soon going to realize that Wu Tang Clan ain't nothin to fuck with.

  5. He's never going to get a proper job calling himself Ghostface Killah, is he? Imagine his name being called out at the interview process.

    I've always been partial to RZA myself. He Ghost, GZA and ODB have all been coming out of my speakers for years and will be for years to come, I'll bet.
