Celebrities have a lot of nonsense to deal with, but recent outrageous lawsuits filed by a Philadelphia woman against premier Compton emcee Kendrick Lamar, as well as hip-hop/R&B’s first couple, The Carters, Jay Z and Beyoncé, may take the cake. Sameerah Satterthwaite is trying to come up on a fortune from the stars in two separate lawsuits, seeking $200 million in each.
According to Philly.com, Satterthwaite is suing Kendrick Lamar Duckworth for the following reasons:
In her lawsuit against Lamar, Satterthwaite alleges that she met with the rapper in Philadelphia on November 3, 2014. The two “talked for like two hours,” Satterthwaite wrote in her statement,” over the course of which they “had a deep conversation.”
Satterthwaite alleges that she recited a poem of her own creation for Lamar titled “Revolutionary Women,” which contained themes she says the rapper stole for his own use on the album To Pimp A Butterfly. Further, Satterthwaite claims Lamar told her that “he will look out for me if I made him rich,” which she considers a “verbal agreement.”
Satterthwaite also claims that the rapper uses her last name on the extended video version of the track “Alright,” speaking at the start “Satterthwaite turn that s—t up” and later saying “R.I.P., my diligence is only meant to write your eulogy.” The lyrics are listed by respected lyrics website Genius as “Sounwave, turn that s—t up,” with Sounwave being Lamar’s award-winning producer.
Satterthwaite is requests that K. Dot “cease and desist all profit earned” from TPAB, or that he break her off with “$200 million for being slandered with R.I.P.” Furthermore, she asks that Kendrick relinquish one of the five Grammys he was awarded for his critically-acclaimed album.
As for Shawn Carter and Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, the allegations are as follows:
In her suit against Beyoncé and Jay Z, Satterthwaite claims that the pop star is “referring to me as a Hoe” in her track “7/11” as a result of the line “I’m fresher than you, hoe.” In live performances of the song, Satterthwaite claims that the singer refers to her “as Medusa referring to my Scoliosis.”
She also notes that “7/11” was released shortly after a family member, Rymir Satterthwaite, 22, entered the public eye last year for claiming that Jay Z is his father. The Family Civil Liberties Union recently took up that case.
Additionally, Satterthwaite alleges that Beyoncé “was slandering my clothing line,” Struck7Philly, in a past performance by wearing “her t-shirt KALE which represents her capital worth.” The singer wore a “KALE” shirt in her music video for “7/11.”
In a separate track, “Formation,” Satterthwaite says the pop star is “referring to her slaying me” due to Beyoncé’s use of the term “I slay” throughout the track.
Satterthwaite is truly aiming for (or at) the stars with these crazy lawsuits. Of course, counsel for Kendrick, Bey or Jay could not be reached for comment.
Man, I guess…
