Kendrick Lamar is facing a lawsuit for copyright infringement.
Filed by Golden Withers Music and Musidex Music, who hold the copyright for Withers’ song, the complaint said Lamar sampled the music “with a thumb to the nose, catch me if you can attitude.”
They are seeking unspecified damages, and the suit was filed in the same court that awarded Marvin Gaye’s family more than $7 million for the “Blurred Lines” trial in March 2015.
That same court will also decide if Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” copied Spirit’s “Taurus.”
