July 17, 2012
This album forever changed the hip-hop industry because of the album's 12th track, "Alone Again." Biz was served a lawsuit by Gilbert O'Sullivan because of "Alone Again" featuring an unauthorized sample from his song "Alone Again (Naturally)." The resulting case was Grand Upright Music, Ltd. v. Warner Bros. Records Inc., in which the court granted an injunction against the defendants to prevent further copyright infringement of the plaintiff's song by sampling and referred them for criminal prosecution. The judgment changed the hip hop music industry, requiring that any future music sampling be pre-approved by the original copyright owners to avoid a lawsuit. Biz would poke fun at his misfortunes, titling his next album All Samples Cleared!

After Cold Chillin' ended its deal with Warner, the album was re-pressed without the illegal track.
