CARDI B, FRENCH MONTANA: Sued Over Sample
Written by KingCnote on August 13, 2019
A DJ is claiming that a beat he created nearly 20 years ago has been sampled multiple times by a number of rappers. And now he wants his money.
Kirk Edwards, who goes by the name DJ JMK, filed a lawsuit against Cardi B, French Montana, Yo Gotti and Master P, who he claims lifted a beat he produced for Choppa‘s 2002 single “Choppa Style” and never paid him. The lawsuit cites several examples of his track being used, including City Girls‘ “Twerk,” which features Cardi B, as well as the Yo Gotti and French Montana track “Oh Yeah.”
The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages for copyright infringement. (TMZ)
