Thomas Dolby Isn't Happy with K-Fed

Hyperbole aside, K-Fed is working hard to live up to his self-proclaimed stature as "America's Most Hated." This week, he added another name to the enemy list.

New wave pioneer Thomas Dolby says he's contemplating legal action against Britney's other half for allegedly sampling Dolby's 1983 hit "She Blinded Me with Science" without permission.

Federline's latest song, "America's Most Hated," was recently released through the aspiring rapper's MySpace page and seems to sample Mobb Deep's "Got It Twisted," which in turn had (legally) sampled a riff from Dolby's smash single.

"Kevin Federline, whom I'd never heard of until a few days ago, appears to have illegally sampled one of my compositions," Dolby posted on his blog after getting tipped off to the track by a fan. "And laws aside, he owed it to me as an artist to ask if I minded that he recorded a vitriolic rap over the top of my music."

Federline's expletive-laced song, which starts off with the line, "This is for the haters," addresses his demonization by those in the press, with extra special shout-outs to Us Weekly--a false tabloid, as his wife might say, and one that the Federlines are currently waging a lawsuit against--and, of course, Bryant Gumbel.

Dolby said he first heard the song after being clued in to its existence via a posting on his Website's message boards. He responded with a blog entry requesting that the song be removed from the singer's MySpace page.

"So, K-Fed, if you're reading this, I'm asking you nicely to take the track down ASAP. Or maybe you'd prefer me to come after some of your wife's ill-gotten gains?"

While Federline's reps had no comment on Dolby's diss, the song was removed from Federline's Website on Wednesday.

Dolby posted another entry on his own site later that day: "Success!"

"You can't just take a very well-known piece of music and add your own vitriolic rap over the top of it and get away with it," the new wave singer told MTV News.

"I considered turning a blind eye to it other than, as I mentioned on my site, asking him politely to take it down. But I found out today that it aired on VH1 last week. So, it's more than just an MP3 download.

"It's like what Vanilla Ice did with 'Ice, Ice Baby,' " Dolby said, "although I think Vanilla Ice is a superstar compared to this guy."
