It was all good just a week ago. But now it looks like Jay Z and Kanye West are facing another lawsuit due to their 2011 collaborative album Watch The Throne. Musician Joel McDonald claims that he was the who made the melodic skeleton of the song “Made In America” and is suing to receive compensation.
McDonald’s version contains similar vocal melodies as the Watch The Throne track. However, both songs have an overall different sound. Check out both tracks below and decide for yourself whether Hov, Yeezus and Frank Ocean could be found guilty.
