Jigga emerged victorious in his copyright trial stemming from the Egyptian sample he and Timbaland used in "Big Pimpin'."

A Los Angeles judged ruled on Wednesday that the nephew of composer Baligh Hamdi did not have a case for his claim that the rapper and producer illegally sampled his uncle's music.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the hook of the lawsuit was based on "moral rights" over Jay Z's licensed use of "Khosara Khosar," he obtained via EMI by Timbaland.
