Eminem is suing Apple for copyright infringement. According to media reports, the rapper and his publishing company Eight Mile Style are going after the tech company for illegally offering 93 of his songs on iTunes.

As the court battle continues between both parties, Apple denies the allegations and claimed that Aftermath Records offered them the songs in question. But Eminem’s publishing company claimed that Aftermath was not authorized to make such a deal without consulting first with the rapper.

On Thursday, September 24 each camp will battle each other in court, where a judge will rule on the validity of the lawsuit.

It is not the first time that the rapper and the tech company have been feuding over money. Earlier this year, FBT a production company that worked with Eminem, unsuccessfully sued Apple, claiming they were entitled to half the royalties that the rapper’s songs generate from iTunes. In 2005, Apple was forced to remove an ad that featured an actor singing Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself”; the rapper sued and later received an undisclosed financial settlement.
