Kendrick Lamar is being sued for the above “The Blacker The Berry” single cover, which photographer Giordano Cipriani claims the rapper used without his consent. He’s looking for $150,000 in compensation for every time it was used, and he also wants K Dot to pay his legal fees.

Top Dawg Entertainment, Aftermath, and Interscope are also named as defendants in the suit, which was filed July 10.

As a potential result of the lawsuit, TDE’s Youtube page has been taken down for copyright infringement. You’re met with the following image when you visit that page now:
