Two musicians are suing Kendrick Lamar, claiming that the rapper’s track “Rigamortis” sounds identical to a song they created.

TMZ first broke the story, musicians Eric Reed and Willie Jones III claim that the Compton native ripped off their song, “The Thorn.” In the suit, Reed and Jones claim Lamar took their music and just added his own lyrics. They say Rigamortis isn’t just a small sample of “The Thorn” but that it is pretty much the same, down to the horns and the beat.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
