Led Zeppelin
A Pennsylvania judge has ruled that a plagiarism lawsuit against Led Zeppelin over their classic hit "Stairway To Heaven" can proceed despite the group's members not having any ties to the jurisdiction in which the suit was filed.

"The individual defendants are British citizens residing in England, own no property in Pennsylv...

T.I. Returns To Top-Notch Form On ‘Paperwork’

October 22nd, 2014 2:20pm EDT
T.I. - Paperwork
Could anyone possibly doubt ‘the King’ – aka T.I. – on his latest studio album, Paperwork? Total poppycock – the biggest load of BS ever, right? Well not totally. The Atlanta MC’s last couple of albums has fallen short of the glory of his best. Sure, 2012 album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head had more goods than the previous, questionable No Mercy (“Trap Back Jumpin’” was enough to seal the deal there), but the top-echelon status of KING (2006) and Paper Trail (2008) were still missing. Paperwork, hence, returns T.I. to top-notch form.

T.I. gets “things poppin’” from the jump, litera...
