Chance the Rapper was sued Tuesday (Sept. 12) for alleged copyright infringement over his song “Windows”
off his debut mixtape 10 Day that came out in 2012.

The plaintiff, a New-York based jazz musician and composer named Abdul Wali Muhammad (formerly Eric P. Saunders)
claims the song contains portions of the Lonnie Liston Smith song “Bridge Through Time,” which Muhammad
filed a separate copyright claim for in 1979, a year before it was released.

Muhammad claims that he never granted Chance the permission to use the sample, and is seeking damages
for the infringement. In his eight-page complaint, he also requests a court order from a federal judge
to stop Chance from “copying, distributing, performing, selling or offering to sell Chance’s song ‘Windows.’”
