Jay Z and Kanye West Sued for Copyright Infringement (Recap)
The claim is being made by New York musician Joel McDonald, who says the rappers and featured performer Frank Ocean stole the concept of the song from his own tune of the same name, released in 2009.
McDonald, who goes by the stage name Joel Mac, is reportedly seeking $3 million in damages. The lawsuit interestingly comes as Jay Z's annual Made in America festival, which expands to two cities this year, is getting ready to take off this weekend. Philadelphia and Los Angeles will host the festivals, taking place over two days, Aug. 30 and 31. More of this story - here.
