In spite of the benefits, today would not be a great day to be Chance the Rapper. Lil Chano has been slapped with a lawsuit for copyright infringement regarding a song that appeared way back on his debut mixtape 10 Day.

As reported in The Chicago Tribune, the plaintiff in question is Abdul Wali Muhammad, a New York-based jazz musician. Muhammad has issued a complaint regarding Chance's track "Windows," which samples the song "Bridge Through Time," co-authored by Muhammad in 1979. He has claimed that Chance did not seek permission to use the song, and has ignored attempts at contact throughout the year. Muhammad has moved for a court order from a federal judge to cease "copying, distributing, performing, selling or offering to sell Chance’s song ‘Windows.'”

As of press time, there has been no statement issued from Chance or his representatives. We will update this story as it develops. Listen to "Windows" and "Bridge Through Time" below.
