    NO HE DIDN’T STEAL THE SONG! The OTHER PEOPLE JUST WANT ATTENTION! IF THEY MADE IT IN 1996 and it wasn’t a hit then, they need to hang it up.

    I’m amazed that Larry Platt marched with Dr. King and still has no idea about copyrights. I knew the LOSERS were going to come out of the woodwork and say he stole a song, but they had better have solid proof, other than that bootleg song they had on T/M/Z.

  • Alrighty Then...

    Who cares? Not like General larry is about to get a mulit-million dollar record deal. It was more about getting the message out there that these lil knucklehead nuccas walking around are LOOKING LIKE FOOLS WITH THEIR PANTS ON THE GROUND!! LOL!

    Their message COULDN’T have been more entertaining than his, so leave him alone…

    Uuuuuuugh, I think you need to read up on music LICENSING and then come back and make this statement. Music is a VERY LUCRATIVE field, he could make MILLIONS on the RINGTONE ALONE.

    THINK ABOUT IT, better yet, READ ABOUT IT!
    One song can make you very rich, why do you think these two men are LYING about him stealing their song.

    Okay now. Grandaddy got a message! He’s “tryna tell the young brothas this ain’t the way to go!” “Gotta say no to the gangs and the drugs and the dresscode. Wit cha pockets on the flo’.” I love it.

  • Alrighty Then...

    @moneymagnet – not interested in music licensing, but I am interested in music, and REALLY? For Pants On the Ground? MILLIONS?? lol… ok.

    The Green brothers are on to something.

    Yes, MUSIC makes MONEY, why do you think the record companies are going after INDIVIDUALS? This song is a GOLDMINE, but I suspect that Larry Platt is going to run into a very unscrupulous attorney.

    Families make Millions in royalties after their loved ones die, and not EVEN people who are REALLY FAMOUS.
    Why do you think Beyonce steals music from other artists and then says that she’s the writer. If you write a song and it becomes a hit, you are PAID though ASCAP!

    Another example is Michael Jackson, when he died, there were 20 attorneys in the courtroom during the reading of his will. Music is so lucrative.
    I knew this would happen with Larry Platt, even if you write a POEM, you should email it to yourself and never open the email, or mail it to yourself, and document what inspired you to write the song.
    Michael Jackson sang Dangerous for one of his albums, but the song was STOLEN from a songwriter, and it was VERY OBVIOUS that the song was stolen, but the lady lost in a court battle.

    People steal lyrics and songs ALL OF THE TIME because there is MAJOR money that you can make.

    Alrighty Then: Think about this, say he licenses the song for ringtones, and he sells 10 million ringtones at $1 each, that’s $10 million, but the best way to do it is through your own website.
