According to Financial Juneteenth, Bishop TD Jakes has filed a lawsuit against Young Jeezy for using a passage of one of his sermons on the remix of his song, ‘Holy Ghost.’ The remix also featured popular rapper Kendrick Lamar.
A statement was released by TD Jakes Ministries: “SPECIAL NOTICE: The ‘Holy Ghost’ remix by Jeezy featuring Kendrick Lamar was produced without the knowledge or consent of T.D. Jakes, TDJ Enterprises, Dexterity Music or its associated companies. We are taking the necessary legal actions to stop the unauthorized use of T.D. Jakes’ intellectual property.â€
The basis of the song centers on the type of lifestyle the two rappers are living as opposed to the lifestyle they grew up with. The conflicts of being a celebrity yet knowing that some of the things they do and the way they are isn’t necessarily the correct way to live.
