In the midst of mourning the death of co-founder Adam Yauch, the Beastie Boys are being forced to answer to a lawsuit over their groundbreaking debut album “Licensed To Ill.” According to NewsPeopleNeed.com, the record label Tuf America filed suit against the recently-inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame act, just one day before MCA’s death from cancer last Friday.

Tuf America claims the Beasties illegally sampled portions of Trouble Funk’s songs “‘Say What” and “Drop the Bomb” for several tracks that appear on 1986’s “Licensed To Ill” and the album’s 1989 follow up “Paul’s Boutique.”

 

The Beasties’ songs in question include “Hold It Now Hit” and “The New Style” from “Licensed To Ill” and “Car Thief” and “Shadrach” on “Paul’s Boutique.”

 

Tuf America wants to take the case to trial to determine damages. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in New York last Thursday, also names Capitol Records.

 

Beastie Boys fans are flocking to the iTunes music store following the passing of one of the trio’s founding members.

 

Adam “MCA” Yauch died last Friday, May 4th, after a long battle with cancer. Since then, the surviving Beastie Boys have seen six of their albums return to the iTunes top 100 at some point. READ MORE
