Tracy Chapman Is Suing Nicki Minaj For Sampling Her Song Without Permission…

I think she has a case!

Chapman says that Nicki’s song “sorry” which is officially unreleased samples lyrics and vocal melody from Tracy’s 1988 song “Baby can I hold you.”

According to reports, Nicki Minaj did attempt to get permission several times but was denied.  As a result, “Sorry” was not included on Nicki’s latest album but was given to a well known Radio DJ who did play it on the radio.
