Kendrick Lamar, SZA Deny They Stole Art For "Black Panther" Song "All The Stars"

AllHipHop Staff

Kendrick Lamar and SZA defend their honor over claims they stole artwork for the "Black Panther" soundtrack.

(AllHipHop News) Kendrick Lamar and singer SZA have denied allegations suggesting they illegally used an artist's work in the music video for their "Black Panther" song "All The Stars."

British-Liberian artist Lina Iris Viktor launched legal action against the musicians in February, claiming their promo was used to recreate the "unique look and feel" of her fine art pieces, entitled "Constellations I," "Constellations II," and "Constellations III," while also using "specific copyrightable elements" such as "stylised motifs of mythical animals, gilded geometric forms on a black background, and distinctively textured areas and patterns."

She revealed representatives for the movie had previously reached out to her twice in the hopes of using her talents onscreen, but she declined, only to find aspects of her work allegedly utilized in the promo for Kendrick and SZA's collaboration.

In her filing, she demanded unspecified damages, and an injunction preventing the duo from continued use of her art.

However, the stars are now fighting back, insisting they have done nothing wrong.

Kendrick and SZA maintain the video was independently created and did not lift ideas from Viktor's work, stating any similarities are fair use and not copyrightable.

They are asking to have the case dismissed. A ruling has yet to be made.
