Following the success of Kendrick Lamar’s single, “The Blacker The Berry” he’s now being sued for copyright infringement for the single artwork. The single artwork which features a woman nursing two young babies is allegedly stolen from photographer, Giordano Cipriani. The_Blacker_The_Berry_Kendrick_Lamar_Art-561x560 [ad type=’inarticle1′] Cipriani claims he took the photograph of the woman with her children, back in 2011 when he took a trip to Africa and neither the rapper or label asked permission to use the photo or compensated him for it. Cipriani recently filled a lawsuit on July 10th and is asking that Lamar not be allowed to use the photo. Additionally, he’s requesting $150,000 damages for each time the image was used and additional cash to pay lawyer fees. [ad type=’inarticle2′] It’s not confirmed if the claim by the photographer is in fact true, but if it is SMH shame on him and TDE!
