*A Pittsburgh rapper is suing fellow hometown artist Wiz Khalifa for $2.3 million over allegations that he stole the hit song “Black and Yellow.”
Max Warren, who performs under the stage name Maxamillion, says Khalifa’s chart-topper “Black and Yellow” was swiped from his own song “Pink N Yellow.”
Warren says he copyrighted “Pink N Yellow” in 2008 and Khalifa copyrighted “Black and Yellow” in 2011.
The copyright infringement lawsuit was filed in federal court in Philadelphia and seeks at least $2.3 million in damages, according to the AP. It names Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz, two other songwriters and several record companies and music publishers.
