Kendrick Lamar has been accused of hidden design from a British-Liberian artist for his lane All The Stars.
The new track, which also facilities SZA, is pronounced to underline design very identical to that of Lina Iris Victor, who was approached by Marvel to use her art in both 2016 and 2017 but she incited the offer down.
The artist now claims that frames in the video for All The Stars underline art temperament such a clever similarity to her pieces that she has brought in a authorised group to take matters further, according to the New York Times.
Viktor’s counsel Christopher Robinson has told CEO of Top Dawg Entertainment Anthony Tiffith that it’s an ‘ethical issue’.
He said: ‘It’s an reliable issue, since what the whole film purports is that it’s about black empowerment, African excellence—that’s the whole judgment of the story”, Robinson told the New York Times.
‘And at the same time they’re hidden from African artists.’
The minute claims the design facilities for 19 seconds of the video.
Viktor told the NY Times: ‘Why would they do this? It’s an reliable issue, since what the whole film purports is that it’s about black empowerment, African value — that’s the whole judgment of the story. And at the same time they’re hidden from African artists.’
Reps for Kendrick Lamar have been contacted for comment.
