Wiz Khalifa Sued By Rapper Claiming He Stole ‘Black and Yellow’ Hit Single

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 01/06/12

Wiz KhalifaIn 2011, Wiz Khalifa blew up thanks to his breakout single, "Black and Yellow." But, a year later, a rapper has come forward claiming the Pittsburgh rap star stole the song from him.

According to TMZ, a Pennsylvania rapper named Maxamillion has filed a $2.3 million lawsuit against Wiz, claiming the idea for the hit "Black and Yellow" came from his lesser known song called "Pink N Yellow."

Max claims he copyrighted his single in 2008, three year before Wiz released and became a superstar off his smash single.

Despite the claims, a source close to Wiz tells TMZ that "Wiz has never heard of this guy ... it's just a plot that happens all the the time to rappers to get money. This is just some no-name rapper who wants to get paid."

Max's attorney, however, says that far from the truth, because he says the two sides previously discussed a potential settlement.

However, Wiz's camp wasn't open to the deal.

Wiz had not commented on the lawsuit as of press time.

Are the songs similar? Listen below.

    What a fucking joke, little bitch max trying to get his dusty ass track heard. His shit sucks!!! Wiz can't rap for shit but at least wiz can make a catchy tune.

  • Mr George3rd

    You don't know if Wiz never heard this song before. Just because you haven't doesn't mean he hasn't. Artist hear never before the public does, ask Jay-Z about "Renegades" that was Emenim & Royce's song first. So don't just follow blindly. With that said Max don't have too much of a case, two totally different songs. He'll lose this one. And it's not even that bad of a song.

    lol i thnk so it sounds too similar especially comin out of the same area but we dont know wiz or him so.

  • Derrell

    theres that little jingle in the back with a punk flavor to both of them. they sound similar and it could have been stolen. Wiz's song is better hands down though.
