If you try to get on Top Dawg Entertainment's YouTube page, you currently get this message:
"Top Dawg Entertainment has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted."So far no statement from TDE or any of its artists on what may have caused the termination, but the sample police are certainly suspect.
It could also be related to the lawsuit photographer Giordano Cipriani just brought against TDE artist Kendrick Lamar.
Cipriani claims Lamar used one of his photos for the cover art on his single 'The Blacker The Berry' without Cipriani's permission. He is seeking an injunction to stop Lamar (or anyone else) from using the image.
