Wiz Khalifa is being sued by a Pennsylvania man, who claims Wiz stole the concept for his smash single, “Black & Yellow.”
According to AHH, Songwriter Max Gregory Warren, of Sharon Pennsylvania, filed a lawsuit in United States District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania on December 30th, 2011 claiming that he wrote a song titled “Pink N Yellow,” in November of 2007, and Wiz Khalifa, producer Stargate, and Rostrum Records, stole the concept for the song.
According to the suit, Wiz Khalifa and his team heard “Pink N Yellow” and “engaged in a scheme to defraud plaintiff out of the fruits of his copyright of the subject song.”
Warren is suing Wiz Khalifa for fraud and deceit, copyright infringement, civil conspiracy and unjust enrichment, and is seeking $2,375,000 in punitive and actual damages.
Others named in the lawsuit are Wiz Khalifa’s publishing company PGH Sound, EMI Music Publishing, Rostrum Records, Warner Music Group and Atlantic Recording Corporation.
