Rapper Jay Z has requested that his financial records and criminal past be left out of a pending lawsuit over his single “Big Pimpin”, according to TMZ. The Rock Nation  head is being accused of illegally sampling music from an Egyptian composer. A judge has yet to rule on Hova’s request. The plaintive, Osama Ahmed, thinks Jay’s financial records and criminal past matter because he claims the Brooklyn native stole the music sample. Hova, however, argues that the information isn’t relevant to the case. Amed is the nephew of deceased composer Baligh Hamdi, whose single “Khosara Khosara”,  was used in the “Big Pimpin” hook. Timbaland produced Jay Z’s 2000 hit and asserts that the sample was cleared through EMI Arabia. A trial date for the case has been set for October 13. Rapper Drake and singer Majid Jordan released the video for their single “My Love”. In the visuals the two venture into a seedy hotel filled with beautiful women. They are surrounded by them. In some scenes, they’re even in the hookah bar with them pondering the question “why do you want to be my love” while trying to have a good time. Let’s hope these guys find the love they’re looking for. Tinashe is back with more visuals for her debut album “Aquarius”. In the clip for the single “All In Good Time”, the R&B star uses the backdrop “Bet” and “Feels Like Vegas” to paint a personal portrait of herself. Directed by Stephen Garnett, the video is set in Los Angeles where Tinashe is in the middle of an intense workout. The camera is focused on her as she does choreographed dance moves while looking sexy in the process. She leaves with the words “End of an Era 1”, indicating that there’s a part two on the way. We’ll have to wait and see.
