Pittsburgh rapper Maxamillion has filed a $2.3 million lawsuit
against Wiz Khalifa with the claim that the emcee's breakthrough hit
"Black and Yellow" stole elements from his own tune "Pink N Yellow."
Maxamillion, otherwise known as Max Warren, says "Pink N Yellow" was
copyrighted in 2008, while Khalifa's hit was copyrighted last year.
Maxamillion's lawsuit, filed in federal court in Philadelphia, names
Khalifa along with two other songwriters and an assortment of record
companies and music publishers. Spokespersons for both Maxamillion and
Khalifa have not commented publicly on the lawsuit.
