Jay Z Dodges the Bullet

Shawn Carter (aka Jay Z) is a free man after a California federal judge dismissed the copyright infringement lawsuit filed against him for allegedly lifting music from a 1957 ballad, “Khosara,” by Egyptian artist Baligh Hamy for his song “Big Pimpin’”. The case was brought by Mr. Hamdy’s nephew, Osama Ahmed Fahmy. The judge dismissed the case against Jay Z and his producer, Timbaland, ruling that Mr. Fahmy did not have legal standing to bring the case to trial in the first place!
