The O’Jays are headed to court

O’Jays co-founders Eddie Levert and Walter Williams are suing Crown Royal Whiskey over use of their 1974 Top 10 hit, “For The Love Of Money.” TMZ reported that the pair is seeking $1 million dollars in damages and claim that the use of a session singer rapping over their recording, was, quote, “humiliating and demeaning and reduced them to background singers.”Levert and Williams slammed the singer calling him a “poseur with limited ability to carry a tune.”
