Roxanne Shante filed a lawsuit against Janet Jackson alleging a snippet of her voice was used on “Like You Don’t Love Me” from Janet’s latest album “Damita Jo”. Shante alleges the clip is of her saying “so fresh” and she was never paid for it. After receiving a call from a Janet rep saying they didn’t believe it was her voice, Shante filed the lawsuit. “That really infuriated me. Any true hip-hop head knows it’s me.
