Timberlake and Jay Z, a chronic copyright thief whose entire career is based on drug money and theft of intellectual property, made a lot of money from the song "Suit & Tie." The song sold 3,000,000 copies. However, being greedy and thieving, they have robbed and shortchanged the people who made the song possible in the first place, via refusing to properly pay Sly, Slick and Wicked for their labor. That's foul and disgraceful. If anyone had done that to Timberlake or Jay Z they would be on television whining and complaining. Knowing Jay Z, based on his past acts of violence, would stab the person.
Justin Timberlake Record Label Sued for 'Suit & Tie'
The band members say Justin's record label, Universal Music Group, paid to sample the song -- however, never got the rights to the vocal performances in that song. Their bottom line ... we did the singing, but we didn't get paid. Making matters worse ... the SS&W guys say they also didn't get paid when UMG licensed "Suit & Tie" for a Bud Light commercial. They point out Justin's song was HUGE -- 3 million copies sold, and 92 million YouTube views -- and they want their piece of the pie ... from UMG, Anheuser-Busch, and other publishers and producers of the track.
