Angie Stone Linked to Possible Lawsuit Against Bruno Mars?

According to reports, Angie and the rest of her former rap group feel Bruno’s hit “Uptown Funk” sounds a lot like their song “Funk You Up.”

They are reportedly in talks to sue.

TMZ writes:

The Sequence, one of the first female rap groups, claims Bruno used their 1979 hit, “Funk You Up” as the inspiration for his massive hit with Mark Ronson.

The group’s rep, Kali Bowyer, claims the hook to both songs are the same, and there are other similarities as well. Check out the 2 songs … you be the judge.

The timing may be more than coincidental … Mars and Ronson just won the Grammy for Record of the Year.

The Sequence — Angie Stone, Cheryl the Pearl and Blondy — haven’t filed a lawsuit yet, but there are now rumblings.
