AllHipHop.com is reporting Jay-Z has been slapped with a lawsuit by a man who claims that sections of his 2010 book ‘Decoded’ were in stolen from him.
In a handwritten lawsuit, filed on June 13 in California, Patrick White asserts that his laptop was stolen in 2009 and somehow his information from the computer now appears in Hov’s lyrics book. “The book contains various expressions, colors, phrases, which correlates to my work,” he scribbles in his lawsuit.
White also claims he unsuccessfully tried to contact Jay-Z and ‘Decoded’ co-author Dream Hampton about the alleged plagiarism but hasn’t heard a word from both parties. “After contacting or attempting to contact the co-author, I got no reply,” he writes in his suit.
