To accuse [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Legend [/lastfm]of jacking a song from another artist is a bit of a shock, but if the evidence is there? Then that rtist may win his lawsuit against the grammy award winning Legend.

According to HiphopDX.com:

Singer-songwriter [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Anthony Stokes[/lastfm] has filed suit against John Legend, claiming that the Grammy-winning ivory tickler listened to his demo tape and modeled a song after one of his tracks.

The suit, filed in New Jersey, claims that Legend watched Stokes give a performance at UNC in 2004. Following the gig, Stokes gave Legend his demo tape with the promise that he would listen to it, but never heard back.

But in 2006, Stokes heard the song “Maxine’s Interlude” off of Legend’s Once Again and realized that it ripped off his track “Where Are You Now?”

Stokes is suing Legend for unspecified damages and is attempting to block Legend from selling the track.

Now I wanna hear Stokes’s song to be able to make a real comparison. I’m a lil shocked that John Legend would resort to such tactics if he actually did or not.
