American rapper, Eminem, has been sued by another rapper who claims that Marshal Matters sampled his song without his permission.

Ramond Jones, a rapper from the group Hotstylez claims Eminem sampled his song “Lookin Boy” in his “Rap God” record without his permission and has now sued the rapper. Raymond Jones wants $8m compensation from Eminem and his record label as he claims his song was sampled on “Rap God” for 25 seconds.

According to TMZ, the songs sound similar and Eminem has not reacted to the allegation.

This legal case comes more than a year after Eminem released the song as one of the singles to promote his eight studio album The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

Hear the two songs and judge for yourselves.
