Kendrick Lamar Dragged Into Legal Battle

Kendrick Lamar

Top Dawg Entertainment protégé Kendrick Lamar is making headlines this week for reportedly being sued over an unauthorized Bill Withers sample.

According to reports, Mattie Music Group has sought out legal action against K. Dot for not having the rights to Withers’ “Don’t You Want To Stay.”

According to legal docs filed by MMG … the company says K. Dot’s 2009 track “I Do This” is a complete replica of “Don’t You Want To Stay” — to the point it “consists of nothing more than new rap and hip hop lyrics set to the existing music of “Don’t You Want To Stay.” Mattie Music is suing for damages and wants Kendrick to stop using the Withers track.
