Musician Joel Mac is currently in the midst of suing hip hop superstars Jay Z, Kanye West and Frank Ocean for copyright infringement over allegations that the trio lifted the song “Made In America” from Jay’s “Watch The Throne” album off a track that Mac recorded in 2009.

TMZ reports that according to the federal lawsuit filed by Mac, the musician claims that several years ago he had stationed himself outside of the Mercer Hotel in New York City, selling copies of his CD, which featured a track called “Made In America.”

At that time, Jay, West and Ocean were inside the hotel, having reportedly rented out several rooms to record Jay’s album “Watch The Throne.” A producer on the project named Mike Dean allegedly bought a copy of Mac’s CD outside the hotel when the recording was taking place.
