A Christian rapper collective are suing Katy Perry, saying she copied their song without permission for her hit, "Dark Horse."
As Gigwise reports, Missouri vocalists Marcus Gray, Chike Ojukwu, Emanuel Lambert and Lecrae Moore have filed lawsuits against Perry, rapper Juicy J and producer Dr Luke, alleging they ripped off their 2008 track "Joyful Noise" for "Dark Horse."
The gospel singers are also accusing Perry of tarnishing "Joyful Noise" with "witchcraft, paganism and Illuminati imagery."
"Indeed, the music video of 'Dark Horse' generated widespread accusations of blasphemy and an online petition signed by more than 60,000 demanding removal of an offensive religious image from the video," add the quartet in their lawsuit. They're seeking damages and demands that Perry stop using any form of their music.
