Wiz Khalifa Sued By Unknown Rapper Over Airport Demo
(AllHipHop News) Rapper Wiz Khalifa has been named in a lawsuit filed by a man he met at an airport.
Dustin Bennett claims Wiz ripped off his 2010 song "Most of Us" after the unknown hip-hop hopeful gave him a demo copy of the tune following a chance meeting at the Salt Lake City International Airport in Utah.
Bennett alleges he gave Wiz two copies of his CD in the hope of persuading the rap star to work with him.
Bennett says he never saw or spoke to the "See You Again" hitmaker again, but in 2016 the rap superstar released the album Khalifa, which featured the song "Most of Us."
In his complaint, he claims Wiz stole "the refrain and chorus" and the lyrics to his song.
"Both tracks have the same title,” the lawsuit contends, “The exact words 'most of us' appear approximately 80 times throughout the Khalifa song, and Khalifa used the exact lyrics in the exact manner as Bennett by introducing each refrain in the same style in the Khalifa song."
