Jay Z settles song dispute?

Rapper Jay Z has reportedly agreed to pay royalties to a 79-year-old jazz musician whose song he sampled without permission.

\n

The 45-year-old rapper has agreed to make payments to 79-year-old Bruno Spoerri for using his instrumental ‘On the Way’ in his track ‘Versus’ without seeking permission, reported Ace Showbiz.

\n

The agreement marks the end of an 18-month legal dispute over the track.

\n

Jay Z, who has three-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with wife Beyonce, initially denied using the music at first but has now admitted he did so without attribution.

\n

According to website, Bruno – who composed ‘On the Way’ in 1978 – initially rejected an earlier offer to settle the dispute because he felt the payment was too low, but has confirmed the matter has now been resolved.

Last month, Jay Z was the subject of another legal dispute when a man filed documents claiming to be his son.

\n

According to a civil lawsuit, written by 21-year-old Rymir’s legal guardian Lillie Coley, Jay submitted fraudulent information to the court to deliberately quash the paternity claim, which is believed to be a fake address.
