2008 has certainly been the year of lawsuits in the music industry. From sample clearance issues to copyright infringement, no artist seems to be in the clear. Not even R&B songstress Mary J. Blige and Hip Hop power player, Jay-Z.
According to TMZ, the two artists are facing legal action from two disgruntled musicians who allege they wrote one of the singer's tunes.
In a lawsuit filed in federal U.S. court, Jermaine Jumpp and Michael C. Adams claim they gave a CD to the office of songwriter/producer Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins, containing their song On My Grind.
The two claim that their song was later used as Blige's 2005 single Enough Cryin', which was produced by Jerkins and released on her album The Breakthrough.
If you're wondering what exactly this has to do with Jay, according to the album credits, Jay-Z is listed as a writer for the 2005 hit.
