Kendrick Lamar Being Sued Over Illegal Sampling On Section.80 Song
Reports surfaced that Kendrick Lamar is being sued over sampling issues for a song that appeared on his first project that was released for sale in 2011, Section.80.
Reports state, U.K. company Woolfsongs Limited is suing Lamar for an uncertain amount over his song “Keisha’s Song (Her Pain)” from Section.80. Woolfsongs Limited alleges that The Alan Parsons Project’s “Old and Wise” is illegally sampled in the song and past attempts to resolve the issue with Lamar in April were never handled.
The lawsuit is ordering for an injunction on the sale of the song as it is featured in various market venues such as iTunes, Spotify and Google Play Music.
