Timbaland Accused Of Stealing Beats

Kernel Records, a music label based in Finland, has filed a lawsuit against acclaimed music producer Timbaland and Pop singer Nelly Furtado, claiming that the two stole elements from a song previously recorded by Finnish artists in order to create the song “Do It.” Produced by Timbaland and written by Furtado, the song appeared on the singer’s third album Loose in ’06, which also featured hit singles such as “Promiscuous” and “Say It Right.”

According to Kernel RecordsTimbaland “knowingly and willfully stole” the song.

“That mess is so ridiculous,” said Timbaland on Marylands-based radio show Elliot in the Morning. ” I can’t really discuss it because it’s a legal matter. But that’s why people don’t believe it. It’s from a video game, idiot. Sample and stole is two different things. Stole is like I walked in your house, watched you make it, stole your protools, went to my house and told Nelly, ‘Hey, I got a great song for you.’ Sample is like you heard it somewhere, and you just sampled. Maybe you didn’t know who it was by because it don’t have the credits listed.”
