Jay-Z & Mary J. Blige Accused Of Jacking For Beats

Two New Jersey men have sued Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige and super producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins for allegedly stealing their music.

According to TMZ, Jermaine Jumpp and Michael C. Adams believe that Jerkins’ beat for Blige’s single “Enough Cryin’” off her 2005 album The Breakthrough, sounds too similar to their song “On My Grind.” The duo claim they submitted a CD with a copy of their song to Jerkins’ office years ago.

As of press time it is unclear what Jay-Z’s role is in the lawsuit. Most recently he teamed with Blige for the hugely successful “Heart Of The City Tour,” which ended in April.- Elan Mancini
