Beastie Boys have been hit with a lawsuit


Music label Tuf America has reportedly submitted a lawsuit against the hip-hop group alleging the band illegally sampled Trouble Funk`s `Say What` and `Drop The Bomb` on four of their early tunes - `The New Style` and `Hold It, Now Hit It` from their 1986 debut album `Licensed to Ill` and `Car Thief` and `Shadrach` from their 1989 follow up record `Paul`s Boutique`.

According to AllHipHop.com, the lawsuit was submitted in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on May 3, one day before Adam - also known as MCA - died at the age of 47 after battling cancer in his parotid gland and a lymph node since 2009.

Tuf America claims to have completed a sound analysis of the four tracks before filing the lawsuit, which also names Beastie Boys` label Capitol Records as a defendant, and the company is now seeking a trial to determine the amount of damages to claim.

A number of stars have paid tribute to Adam - who founded the group with Kate Schellenbach, John Berry, and Michael Diamond (Mike D) in 1979 with Berry leaving in 1983 to be replaced by Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz - in recent days including Ad-Rock, Mike and music legends Madonna, Jay-Z, Eminem and Coldplay.

Mike wrote on the group`s Facebook page:"I know, we should have tweeted and instagrammed [blogged] every sad, happy and inspired thought, smile or tear by now. But honestly the last few days have just been a blur of deep emotions for our closest friend, band mate and really brother. I miss Adam so much.

"He really served as a great example for myself and so many of what determination, faith, focus, and humility coupled with a sense of humour can accomplish. The world is in need of many more like him. We love you Adam."
