While Good Kid, mAAd City is Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut, 2011′s Section.80 was the first project he released for sale. Today (July 2nd) reports surface that Lamar is being
sued over sampling issues for one of its songs.
According to reports, U.K. company Woolfsongs Limited is suing Lamar for an unspecified 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 attempts to resolve the issue with Lamar in April were not returned on Lamar’s end.
The lawsuit demands an injunction on the sale of the song as it is featured in many marketplaces including iTunes, Spotify and Google Play Music.
