We are only a few days into the New Year and already we have our first case of “that b*tch done stole my song”. The good news is that for once (at least this time) it’s not Beyonce; I love her but y’all know she say’s jackin’ someone elses sh*t.
Any who, Wiz Khalifa, the rapper behind the massive hit single “Black N Yellow” (at least that’s what we thought) is being accused of swagger jacking another artist’s song “Pink N Yellow” and made it his own. At least that’s what they say.
Wiz Khalifa is telling friends there’s a ZERO percent chance he ripped his smash hit “Black and Yellow” from a lesser known song called “Pink N Yellow” … ’cause he’s never EVER listened to the track … this according to sources close to Wiz.
Wiz is adamant he would never jack lyrics from another artist … despite the allegations in a new $2.3 million lawsuit filed by a Pennsylvania rapper named Maxamillion.
Max claims he copyrighted “Pink N Yellow” in 2008 … three years before Wiz released “Black and Yellow.”
But one source close to Wiz tells TMZ … “Wiz has never heard of this guy … it’s just a plot that happens all the the time to rappers to get money. This is just some no-name rapper who wants to get paid.”
TMZ also spoke with Max’s attorney … who tells us Wiz SHOULD know who Max is … because the two sides had spoken about a potential settlement recently. We’re told Wiz’s people were not open to a deal. [source]
Take a listen to both tracks below:
Sounds like someone is a little bitter that their song didn’t blow up the same way Wiz’s did……..they don’t sound anything alike…but we shall see where this goes…..
