Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z Accused Of ‘Song Jacking’
Two New Jersey men, Jermaine Jumpp and Michael C. Adams, have filed a federal lawsuit against Mary J. Blige and Jay-Z claiming they made money off of their song.
In the fedaral lawsuit, Jumpp and Adams claim they handed a CD to the office of renowned producer, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, with their “On My Grind” song on it, according to TMZ.
The incident reportedly happened back in 2001, so the two, Jumpp and Adams, were surprised in 2005 to hear the Mary J. recorded song “Enough Cryin’ on the album The Breakthrough which Jay-Z received co-writing credit.
There’s no word on why the lawsuit or any legal action or ‘reaction’ took three years. Neither Jumpp, Adams, their lawyers, Jay-Z or Mary J. have commented or have been available for comment on the lawsuit, so no further details are available.
