Kayne West, Common, Method Man and Redman are being sued by the daughter of a jazz musican because they did not get permission from his estate to use samples of his music. The lawsuit said all the rappers used portions of late U.S. jazz musician Joe Farrell's 1974 musical composition "Upon This Rock" in three separate songs -- West in "Gone," Common in "Chi-City" and Method Man and Redman in their song "Run 4 Cover." Kathleen Firrantello is seeking punitive damages of at least $1 million and asked that no further copies of the songs be made, sold or performed, according to the lawsuit.
