The WWE Is ‘Looking Into’ Meek Mill Sampling The Undertaker’s Theme On ‘Wanna Know’
VIA: Among all the Twitter memes about Meek Mill’s “Wanna Know” were fake tweets about how pissed off The Undertaker was about Meek and producer Jahlil Beats sampling his theme. Well, the WWE is looking into the situation for real. TMZ contacted the WWE offices about it, and the spokesperson noted that “WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously, and we’re looking into the matter.”
The song has only been released via Funk Flex’s SoundCloud, so it seems unlikely that any actions filed will go beyond a cease and desist. Still, as the rep noted, the WWE has to protect their IP so that random artists adding trap drums to the Million Dollar Man’s theme don’t get any bright ideas about who legally owns what.
