Kendrick Lamar is being sued by Woolfsongs Limited regarding his 2011 song “Keisha’s Song (Her Pain),” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The case, which was filed in California federal court, centers around the song from the Compton, California rapper’s Section.80 album, which Woolfsongs Limited says improperly samples The Alan Parsons Project’s selection “Old and Wise.”

The Alan Parsons Project’s “Old and Wise” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Keisha’s Song (Her Pain)” are as follows:
