Eminem to donate “Lose Yourself” lawsuit money to Hurricane Relief.
Earlier this week, Eminem won the lawsuit which was filed against the National Party of New Zealand for breaching copyright of his hit “Lose Yourself”. The lawsuit was filed by the publishers of ‘Lose Yourself‘ Eight Mile Style. The rapper was awarded $600,000 (around $415,000 U.S.) after winning the lawsuit.
According to Variety, Eminem will donate all the Lawsuit proceeds to the charity that has been helping residents of Puerto Rico, Houston, Texas, and other areas that were affected by Hurricane Maria, Hurricane Harvey, and Hurricane Irma.
The rep for Eminem said “Eminem was not a party to this lawsuit now was he consulted regarding the case. Any monetary settlement he receives from it will be donated to hurricane relief. He encourages the plaintiffs, 8 Mile Styles, to do the same.”
The case was filed against the conservative National Party of New Zealand back in 2014 for breaching the copyright of “Lose Yourself” in their campaign ad.
