Kendrick Lamar is facing a lawsuit by photographer Giordano Cipriani. Allegedly Lamar used one of the freelance photographers pictures to promote his song  The Blacker The Berry off his latest album To Pimp A Butterfly. Cipriani claims the photo was taken while with the rapper in Africa and never received payment for the photograph. The image is of a mother breastfeeding her child. He recently filed a lawsuit (July 10th) against Kendrick Lamar, Interscope and Aftermath at the New York Federal Courts. The lawsuit states Cipriani wants $150,000 for every time the picture was used and the cost of legal fees.

We will keep you updated on how this plays out. What are your thoughts?
