Drake's song "Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2" has landed him in a little bit of legal hot water. The song's 35-second intro is credited to Jimmy Smith, a now-deceased jazz musician.

According to TMZ, despite the fact that he reportedly claims on the album that the clip was licensed, Jimmy's estate says nothing of the sort happened and they want Drizzy to pay up.

The site obtained a lawsuit that alleges that Drake stole the lyrics and used them without permission and they're seeking more than $300,000 in damages from the rapper as well as Cash Money Records and some other people associated with the song.

You can listen to the full song above...the part in question is the first 35 seconds...essentially everything leading up to the trippy auto-tuned "tomorrrroooowwwwww" lyric.

We totally understand wanting to use the clip because it's kind of a cool throwback, but why in the world wouldn't he get permission and then claim that he did?
