Looks like the music producers behind the hit Fox series, ‘Empire’ is in some hot water.

According to All Hip Hop, Hip-Hop legend, Doug E. Fresh and songwriter Unique Mecca Hall are filing a Multi-Million Dollar lawsuit against Fox’s top-rated show, ‘Empire’ for illegally sampling Doug’s 1993 hit song, “I-Ight” (Alright).

The sample was used in the song “No Doubt About It,” which was performed by Pitbull and Jussie Smollett in an episode. The song is also featured on ‘Empire: Original Soundtrack from Season 2 Volume 1’.
