T.D Jakes to take legal action against Kendrick Lamar & Young Jeezy

Thu 16 Oct 2014
By Isaac Borquaye

T.D Jakes has threatened legal action against award winning American rap stars Kendrick Lamar and Young Jeezy.

The rappers who recently released a remix named “Holy Ghost” used a snippet of a T.D Jakes sermon in the intro of the song.  Bishop Jakes has said that he did not authorise the use of the sermon in the Hip-Hop song. He posted the following message on his Facebook page:

The “Holy Ghost” remix by Jeezy featuring Kendrick Lamar was produced without the knowledge or consent of T.D. Jakes, TDJ Enterprises, Dexterity Music or its associated companies. We are taking the necessary legal actions to stop the unauthorized use of T.D. Jakes' intel

In the remix Jakes sermon states the following:

To tell myself, I’m still on fire. I’m under attack, but I’m still on fire. I got some chatter, but I’m still on fire. I got some threat, but I’m still on fire. I got some liabilities, but I’m still on fire. If it’s not amazing that I’m on fire. I’ve been to hell and back, but I’m still on fire.

Neither Young Jeezy nor Lamar have responded to the allegations.
