Eminem and his record label have been sued by a French composer who claims the rapper stole one of his tunes.
The copyright infringement lawsuit, filed in Manhattan, accuses Eminem and Interscope Records of lifting parts of "Pulsion" - a jazz fusion work by Jacques Loussier - for Eminem's "Kill You."
The suit, which names Loussier as plaintiff, seeks unspecified damages.
A call to Interscope Records was not immediately returned.
"Kill You" appears on Eminem's best-selling album "The Marshall Mathers LP." The song talks about killing women, with the lyrics, "I'm ready to play, I got the machete from OJ"
Loussier, 67, of Paris, gained fame by fusing classical music and jazz with his Play Bach Trio.
He has released more than a dozen albums, selling six million copies worldwide.
