The Weekend & Kendrick Lamar Sued

Two years ago The Weekend and Kendrick Lamar scored a big hit with "Pray For Me" off The Black Panther soundtrack and the success of the song caught the ear of the Brooklyn based experimental rock band Yeasayer who claim that Pray For Me samples their 2007 song "Sunrise".

Yeasayer who broke up last December is looking to block sales and airplay of Pray For Me, as well as recoup all of the profits and damages from the release. The sample in question is in the chorus and rhythm of Sunrise being sped up and pitched up in Pray For Me.
