Kendrick Lamar has been slapped with a lawsuit over his 2011 song ‘Keisha’s Song (Her Pain)’ from his ‘Section.80′ album.

Woolfsongs Limited, a U.K. company that manages the works of Eric Woolfson and his group, The Alan Parsons Project, filed the suit in California federal court.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Woolfsongs Limited accuses Lamar of sampling the Alan Parsons Project’s song ‘Old and Wise’ without their permission.

The lawsuit states that both parties tried to settle out of court but were unsuccessful.

Woolfsongs Limited is seeking an injunction on the sale of the song and compensatory damages.

Lamar’s lawsuit follows behind gospel rapper Lecrae and Flame’s copyright-infringement case against Katy Perry. They believe that producer Max Martin, Juicy J and Perry have stolen their song ‘Joyful Noise’ for Perry’s No. 1 hit ‘Dark Horse.’

Attorneys for Katy Perry had no comment on the matter.
