Woman Who Stole Jay-Z Lyrics For Kids Book Caught In Blackface Controversy
(AllHipHop News) Jay-Z's Australian lawyers are gearing up for what could be a nasty fight over one of his best-known songs.
Jay-Z's lawyers warned her to stop selling the book in 2018, claiming she was infringing on his copyrights for the song since she never offered up a dime to use the lyrics.
Jessica Chiha issued a statement in which she expressed disappointment in Jay-Z, for protecting his assets while vowing to fight the lawsuit.
"To have someone like Jay-Z file legal proceedings is daunting beyond belief and hugely dispiriting," Jessica Chiha told The Daily Mail, even though her company has been accused of ripping off African-American artists in the past.
Jessica Chiha could have more legal action to deal with if Jay-Z's complaint is any indication of how she operates her company.
Chiha has authored other books like "First 50 Words With 50 Cent," and "1 2 3 With the Notorious B.I.G." and sells merchandise with lyrics from Beyonce, Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, and others.
