Cypress Hill is being sued over 1991 song

A little over a week ago, a record company named Drive-In Music declared a lawsuit against Busta Rhymes and the Leaders of the New School for copyright infringement on one of their nearly two decade old songs. Now they are conjuring up another outdated legal battle with Cypress Hill for their song, “How I Could Just Kill a Man” off their 1991 self-titled debut album.

This time, Drive-In is claiming that Cypress Hill sampled a track from the rock band The Music Machine called Come On In without permission. Drive-In is using the same excuses made for the Busta Rhymes lawsuit regarding why there is such a long time lapse between the complaint and the release date of the song. They claim to have just recently become aware of the infringement.

Drive-In wants a full injunction to freeze any further sales of Cypress Hill’s 1991 album, an unspecified amount of damages, and impounding any copies of the record.

Cypress Hill or their reps have not yet commented on the allegations.
