1  Forum / The Buzz Central / FUNNY! Jay Z Sued For Using "Oh" In 'Run This Town' on: 21-09-2014 06:31AM

According to record label TufAmerica, the hip hop giant took the short word form Eddie Bo's 1969 single "Hook and Sling".
Jay Z has been slammed with a new lawsuit for using one word - OH - in his 2009 hit song "Run This Town" which also featured Kanye West and Rihanna.
According to record label TufAmerica, the hip hop giant took the short word form Eddie Bo's 1969 single "Hook and Sling".
The "Holy Grail" hit-maker has already responded to the accusation. His legal rep stated that,  "Even if one short word – or the recording thereof – could possibly be deemed original enough to warrant copyright protection, this fleeting and generic phrase is neither quantitatively nor qualitatively significant."
Therefore they've reportedly set a motion to dismiss the lawsuit but it remains unclear if TufAmerica will accept to walk away.
Meanwhile, Jay Z is reportedly working on a joint album with his superstar wife, Beyonce with whom he shares a daughter, Blue Ivy.

A man in America caused panic in the White House when he jumped over the fence and landed inside the premises, AFP reports.
The intruder, identified as Omar Gonzalez, reportedly made it into the building before he was stopped.
President Barack Obama and his family were not in the residence as they had supposedly departed minutes earlier for Camp David, the presidential weekend retreat.
However, the incident still triggered an evacuation as officials and journalists were rushed out of the building.
Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said the intruder was 42 years old and from Texas. Leary added:
"It appeared to responding officers that he was unarmed, which turned out to be true,"
"Gonzalez ignored the commands of those officers to stop and ultimately was apprehended by officers just inside the North Portico doors of the White House."
"Any time someone jumps the fence, there is a security breach and the Secret Service has to balance security with access and reasonableness,"
Leary also reportedly said that Gonzalez was suffering from chest pains and had been taken to George Washington Hospital for a medical evaluation.
