Federline Rips Off Dolby

We all know Kevin Federline sucks, but it seems like the deadbeat coattail rider has committed another musical faux paux:

"Britney Spears’ slacker husband, Kevin Federline, has yet another trouble to add to his ever-growing list. The D-list celebrity has illegally sampled Thomas Dolby’s 1983 hit. Federline’s latest rap song, entitled 'America’s Most Hated', samples Mobb Deep’s 'Got It Twisted', which legally samples Dolby’s smash new wave song, 'She Blinded Me With Science.'"

Needless to say, Dolby is quite angry at Federline's latest anti-music attempt:

"You can't just take a very well-known piece of music and add your own vitriolic rap over the top of it and get away with it," Dolby told MTV News on Wednesday (April 5). "If anybody's going to sing nasty lyrics over my music, it's going to be me."

But the Dolby response that I think sums up the situation perfectly was:

"I think Vanilla Ice is a superstar compared to this guy."
