Dustin Bennett, who performs under the name Cymple Man, claims he gave Khalifa his CD when the two met in 2012 at the Salt Lake City International Airport.
Wiz Khalifa is facing a new lawsuit over his Khalifa track "Most of Us" by a Georgia rapper alleging his 2010 song with the same name was ripped off due to similarities between the phrasing on the two songs.
Dustin Bennett -- who raps under the moniker Cymple Man -- claims Khalifa had access to his song when the two artists allegedly met in 2012 at the Salt Lake City International Airport in Utah and Bennett gave him two demo copies of his first album, entitled Cymple Man. The Self-Titled Debut. According to the suit, Bennett was traveling to Idaho to perform a concert, while at the same time Khalifa had just landed to perform at the University of Utah that night. The two never had contact again following.
While the songs are significantly different in their production, they do bear similarity in their lyrics. Both Khalifa and Bennett follow a similar phrasing structure throughout, starting each stanza with the phrase "most of us" as a means to describe how they perceive their own lives and those of others (while Bennett's is focused on scrutinizing the American status quo, Khalifa mostly reps his Taylor Gang crew and his rise to the top while staying hard). And though "most of us" is a common phrase, the Bennett's argument focuses in on the resemblance of how it is used both songs.
