Uncle Luke Explains Why He Sued French Montana Over "Pop That" - French Montana's summer 2012 jam "Pop That" was a major hit, but not everyone was rocking out. The chorus samples 2 Live Crew's hit "I Wanna Rock," which at first had former member Uncle Luke hyped--but when he never received a check for the song, Luke wasn't as excited.

He explained that French called him to appear in the video without telling him about the sample, essentially being sly about it. When he realized what happened, he decided to go through with the lawsuit. 

He also maintained that he doesn't need to be sampled by current rappers to remain relevant. Listen to the interview above for the whole story.
