Hip-Hop Star Frank Ocean Hits Back At Don Henley
Hip-hop star Frank Ocean has stepped up his war of words with Eagles legend Don Henley, insisting he’s made no money from sampling Hotel California.
Henley has threatened to take legal action against the Odd Future rapper, accusing him of using “the whole master track” of the hit 1977 song in his tune American Wedding.
Ocean hit back this week, insisting the veteran rocker is “intimidated” by his song – and now he’s blasted Henley for taking aim at “the new guy”.
In a post online, Ocean writes, “S**t’s weird. Ain’t this guy rich as f**k? Why sue the new guy? I didn’t make a dime off that song. I released it for free. If anything I’m paying homage.”
