Wiz Khalifa Sued'Most of Us' Don't Steal Songs... But, You Did!!! 2/1/2018 3:02 PM PST Breaking News
Wiz Khalifa got a demo CD from a fellow rapper, and liked the track so much he decided to make it his own hit song ... so claims that rapper in a new lawsuit.
Hip-hop artist Cymple Man claims he met Wiz in 2012 in the Salt Lake City airport, and gave him 2 copies of an original song he'd recorded, called, "Most of Us." Cymple says he wanted to see if Khalifa was interested in a collab.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Cymple never heard back from Wiz, but then in 2016, Khalifa released his self-titled album with a song he says "unmistakably copies the essential elements" of Cymple's song. Of course, Wiz's track is also "Most of Us."
Cymple Man is suing Khalifa for damages and wants him to stop using his song.

The singing icon kicked off the new year by returning to her critically-acclaimed Las Vegas residency at Caesar's Palace.
And while Celine is famed for interacting with fans during her set, things went a step further during her latest concert when an overzealous audience member rushed the stage.
The unidentified woman, who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, interrupted the 49-year-old singer in the middle of her show.

This year’s American Music Awards was a reflection of the year in pop music, with women dominating the show, but not as nominees or winners.
In categories like artist of the year and favorite pop/rock album, where men and women compete, no female acts were in contention. Only six female artists or groups that include women won in the more than two dozen fan voted awards handed out Sunday night. However, the legendary Diana Ross was given a lifetime achievement award, which former President Barack Obama rightfully noted was an overdue honor.
But the women instead took over the show with powerful, incredible, emotional and inspiring performances from Ross, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga and more.
