Tupac Shakur who had died more than ten years ago is facing a lawsuit after similarity in lyrics was discovered by the rightful owner.

Even more than a decade after his death in 1996, is still making a headline. The deceased rapper is being sued by singer Esther Williams for copying her lyrics in the song "Late Night".

Williams filed a lawsuit against the rapper icon's company Amaru Entertainment after discovering Tupac's lyrics in "Last Night" was too similar to her 1976 single "Last Night Changed It All". Tupac's mother and the representation of Universal Music Group are faced against this charge.

Tupac was shot in a drive-by shooting on September 7, 1996. He died 6 days later due to respiratory failure and cardiac arrest.
