I’m sure Drake thought he was doing a good thing, but reactions to the single and his fourth coming project had  mixed reaction.  For the most part, people were happy to her voice again.  However her family, Missy Elliott, Timbaland and DMX weren’t happy at all.  They all cited the fact that Drake neither knew nor worked with Aaliyah before her death and was being disrespectful to the artist that did by dropping a single without including them.  Non the less, Drizzy’s devotion to her never wavered and on top of the existing tattoo of her face on his back and recently got another tatt in her honor.

Now two lawsuits are  brewing over the ownership of Aaliyah’s music.   According to TMZ a publishing company named Reservoir Media Management is suing Craze Productions, an independent record label and film distributor for illegally selling tracks off  her self-titled 2001 album on iTunes.
