Rapper Action Bronson Has Been Hit With A Lawsuit Accusing Him Of Illegally Sampling Two Songs.
The owners of Puerto Rican salsa group El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico's catalogue allege the Easy Rider star sampled Falsaria and Trampolin for his tracks Mofongo and Tapas without their permission.
They also claim Bronson admitted on Twitter.com to using Falsaria in 2011 and mentioned his affinity for the band in a 2014 Inquisitor interview, saying, "I like to cook to Spanish and Latin music. If you're in the kitchen... I'd suggest bands like El Gran Cambo de Puerto Rico."
They are asking a judge to halt distribution of Bronson's songs and hand them unspecified damages, according to TMZ.com.
