Angie Stone wants Bruno Mars to run her coins and says he needs to respect those who help pave the way for his music.
We got the R&B; singer Thursday in the ATL and asked her about her rap group, The Sequence, suing Bruno and producer Mark Ronson back in December … alleging their hit single, “Uptown Funk,” is a ripoff of The Sequence’s 1979 single, “Funk You Up.”
As TMZ first reported … The Sequence is asking for a jury trial and unspecified amount of money from Bruno. Angie’s lawsuit ain’t the first against Bruno for the same song. Zapp and Roger Troutman made similar allegations back in September.
Now I do love me some Bruno Mars. However , I see a Robin Thick and Pharell payout on the way. Please pay Angie Stone she known knock a mf teeth out 😣😣😣😣
