Artist Claims 'Black Panther' Soundtrack Stiffed Her

Artist alleges her art was stolen for “All The Stars” video Artist Says Kendrick Lamar and SZA's "All The Stars" Video Copied Her Work

After Lamar's music was featured in some of the trailers for Black Panther, fans assumed that he'd create a song or two for the soundtrack.

The newly released Black Panther The Album studio effort is set to do monster numbers. "And at the same time they're stealing from African artists", Viktor told The New York Times. "The infringement of Ms. Viktor's rights is willful and egregious", the letter says.

Although its curators would prefer you didn't call it a soundtrack, the Black Panther album-crafted by Kendrick Lamar, Top Dawg and team to accompany the wildly anticipated Marvel blockbuster, which hits theaters in one week-has arrived, in tandem with an official ST (for the latest steamy installment in the Fifty Shades franchise). The video director, Dave Meyers, who oversaw the video along with Lamar and his creative partner Dave Free, did not respond to requests to comment.

Nancy E. Wolff, a copyright lawyer who serves as the president of the Copyright Society of the US, said that the video's directors are likely to argue that the images in the video are not exact copies. Viktor said to the Times. A story in Okay Africa about the video noted: "The work and influence of British-Liberian artist Lina Iris Viktor can be clearly spotted". So, when the video was released, she was surprised to see her gold patterned style closely duplicated in a 19-second scene. There's no word if he plans to officially release it in the near future.

The video for Kendrick Lamar and SZA's collaboration "All The Stars" has been accused of plagiarism. "Cultural appropriation is something that continually happens to African-American artists", she said, "and I want to make a stand".

New York Times reports that the artist was approached by representatives from Marvel about using imagery from her Constellations series, but she ultimately declined.
