Rapper Claims Eminem Stole His Sample for “Rap God” Track
TMZ published the following article in regards to Eminem ripping off the “Rap God” track from a rapper named Raymond Jones:
Eminem is NOT a rap God … according to a MC who claims Marshall Mathers sampled his song “Lookin Boy” without permission — and now he wants MILLIONS.
Raymond Jones — a rapper from the group Hotstylz — is suing Em and his record label for $8 million over the song “Rap God” … which he says features a 25 second sample mid-track.
If you listen to the songs — the music in question does sound strangely similar.
After listening to booth tracks, these guys are really reaching. I highly doubt this lawsuit will see the light of day.
