Eminem has been sued for using someone else’s track in his song Rap God without permission.
According to TMZ, Raymond Jones of the rap group Hotstylz filed legal documents today, accusing Eminem of sampling their song Lookin’ Boy for 25 seconds in his Rap God track without asking for their permission.
If you listen to both songs (joined by TMZ below), there’s no doubt that they are similar. But what is not clear is whether Eminem simply stole the track or was just mocking.
Anyhow, Raymond is seeking $8 million.
