#FreshRadio Lineup #TGIF October 19, 2012



On October 19th, 2004, Hip-hop legend Roxanne Shante filed a lawsuit against Janet Jackson, claiming her voice was sampled without permission on Janet’s Damita Jo album.

  • The song “Like You Don’t Love Me” contains a sampled clip of Shante’s voice saying “so fresh.”
  • Shante said she only contemplated the lawsuit after a representative for Jackson called her and said it wasn’t her voice that was sampled.
  • Shante, who has owned the masters to her own recordings for almost a decade, said this wasn’t the first time she’d had to deal with  sample clearances.
  • The words have been used in countless hip-hop songs and have appeared on popular break-beat vinyl compilations.
  • Most people assume the words come from Biz Markie’s “Nobody Beats the Biz,” which also sampled the original record.
