Lecrae Speaks Out On Katy Perry Lawsuit: 'I Don’t Want Nothing To Do With All That'


Credit: GETTY


Grammy® Award winning Christian rap artist Lecrae Moore, who was recently named among multiple plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against pop superstar Katy Perry, is distancing himself from it.


The 34-year-old Reach Records CEO said he wants nothing at all to do with the legal music beef.

“I have no qualms with Katy Perry. Love her. If she wants to talk at any point in time I’m more than willing to,” he said in an interview with MTV.

A 2007 song “Joyful Noise” by Christian rapper Marcus Gray, best known as Flame, sparked the controversy. Perry’s song “Dark Horse” is said to have infringed upon the copyright of its Christ-honoring musical predecessor.

The official documents claim “Joyful Noise” is “irreparably tarnished by its association with the witchcraft, paganism, black magic, and Illuminati imagery evoked by the same music in ‘Dark Horse’.”

Katy Perry is being accused of copyright infringement for her song "Dark Horse" which Christian rapper Flame says is very similar to his 2007 hit "Joyful Noise" Though some within the faith community agree that the imagery and allusions connected with the pop star’s song are disturbing, Moore does not share that perspective.

“I was in Hong Kong and all that stuff went out. The press release went out. It’s not my song. It’s my guy Flame’s song and I respect everyone’s intellectual properties,” he said, “but that statement about all the witchcraft and stuff, that’s not my statement and I don’t stand behind that statement.”

Chike Ojukwu and Emmanuel Lambert (Da T.R.U.T.H.) are also named in the suit.

“At the end of the day, hey, man, I hope for the best between all of that stuff that’s going on over there,” said Moore. “I’m over here and I don’t want nothing to do with all that.”

And there you have it.

Currently, the lyricist is promoting his 7th LP, Anomaly, due in stores in September. Preorders of the body of work have skyrocketed, landing the unreleased project at No. 2 on iTunes overall charts.
