Mary J. Blige can rest a little easier now that a lawsuit centered on the 2001 hit single “Family Affair” has been thrown out. Blige was reportedly accused of committing copyright infringement in a suit filed this January by Leonard Jones and James White, according to All Hip Hop. “Family Affair,” a hit Blige completed in August of 2001 with Dr. Dre, according to White, bore a striking resemblance to a rapper named Benevolence’s song “Party Ain’t Crunk”. Due to a lack of evidence the case was reportedly dismissed clearing both Blige and Dr. Dre. In related news, Mary J. Blige will appear on Jadakiss’ new album “Last Kiss”. Speaking with MTV recently, the Lox member detailed the new list of collaborations featured on his forthcoming effort: “I did two joints with Swizz Beatz. I got one from Khaled by the Inkredibles. I got Mary J. Blige on it, I think it’s a big, huge record”. “Last Kiss” is slated for release April 7.
