Young Jeezy and Kendrick Lamar may be attracting attention from fans with the remix to Jeezy’s single “Holy Ghost,” but the song is garnering a different type of look from Bishop T.D. Jakes.
MadameNoire.com reports the pastor’s legal team will be taking legal action against the song for the unauthorized use of his popular sermon “Don’t Let The Chatter Stop You.” An annotated version of the message featured in the into to the “Holy Ghost” remix includes Jakes preaching the following part:
To tell myself, I’m still on fire.
I’m under attack, but I’m still on fire
I got some chatter, but I’m still on fire
I got some threat, but I’m still on fire
I got some liabilities, but I’m still on fire
If it’s not amazing that I’m on fire
I’ve been to hell and back, but I’m still on fire
Jakes’ sermon, along with verses from Jeezy and Lamar, make up the content for the “Holy Ghost” remix. In his verse, Jeezy reminisces over days as a drug dealer in order to make money in addition to talking about his how his life is now after he became famous.
Lamar goes in next with bars that go into how he enjoys the materialism and sexual experiences of his new life but questions if he is a true role model by doing so. According to reports, the song title, “Holy Ghost” is based on the nickname Jeezy has for his Rolls Royce.
On Tuesday, the following statement was posted on Facebook regarding the song:
Since the release of the statement, no updates regarding specific legal action for the case has been given.
News of the case comes amid the recent release of Jeezy’s latest album, “Seen It All: The Autobiography.”
