Wiz Khalifa is telling friends there’s a ZERO percent chance he ripped his smash hit “Black and Yellow” from a lesser known song called “Pink N Yellow” … ’cause he’s never EVER listened to the track … this according to sources close to Wiz.
We’re told Wiz is adamant he would never jack lyrics from another artist … despite the allegations in a new $2.3 million lawsuit filed by a Pennsylvania rapper named Maxamillion.
Max claims he copyrighted “Pink N Yellow” in 2008 … three years before Wiz released “Black and Yellow.”
But one source close to Wiz tells TMZ … “Wiz has never heard of this guy … it’s just a plot that happens all the the time to rappers to get money. This is just some no-name rapper who wants to get paid.”
TMZ also spoke with Max’s attorney … who tells us Wiz SHOULD know who Max is … because the two sides had spoken about a potential settlement recently. We’re told Wiz’s people were not open to a deal.
A rep for Wiz had no comment.
