Luda’s version of “Sex Room” appeared on his 2010 album Battle of the Sexes and featured Trey Songz.
MarVo is now asking for compensation from Ludacris, which is weird because Luda didn’t steal the song, he paid for it. If anything the Chi-Town up-and-coming artist should be suing the producer.

According to court docs obtained by Rolling Stone, the Peas front-man is claiming that he owns the the “I AM” phrase and Pharrell’s logo is “confusingly similar”. To that, Pharrell issued a statement on the issue and in a very professional manner said, “negro please”:
“I am disappointed that Will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me. ”I am someone who likes to talk things out and, in fact, I attempted to do just that on many occasions. I am surprised in how this is being handled and I am confident that Will’s trademark claims will ultimately be found to be as meritless and ridiculous as I do.”
