Action Bronson joins the list of artists being sued over sampling issues.

According to TMZ, Bronson sampled the veteran salsa group El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico without permission. The tracks “Falsaria” and “Trampolin” were said to be sampled on Action Bronson’s tracks “Mofongo” and “Tapas.” Although who filed the lawsuit is still under question, the filer claims that Bronson admitted to sampling the songs as well as being a listener of El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico.

The filer is not only seeking damages, they are also seeking cessation of distribution. Yikes. In the meantime, listen to the Bronson tracks below and see if you can spot the samples.
