common-1Common is a self-proclaimed thief … A dude who busts himself when he steals — this, according to a pair of songwriters.

Andrew Marks and London McDaniels filed a lawsuit yesterday, claiming Common stole their song ‘When Will The Day Come’ in his 2007 tune ‘Take It EZ.

Even though Common gives Marks and McDaniels this credit on the downloadable version of his song: “Contains samples from: When Will The Day Come.”

Too bad having credit on a song doesn’t stop the bill collectors from coming around, so Marks and McDaniels are suing for unspecified damages.

Common, you landed the 14th spot on Forbes’ Hip-Hop Cash Kings List with $8 million dollars earned, paying them for their orginal work shouldn’t be a problem…
