Cardi B & French Montana Sued for Supposedly Sampling Song Without Permission
Cardi B, Master P, and French Montana are in for litigation concerning a sampled song without permission. According to the court document, the Louisiana DJ JMK claimed in 2000 he created an instrumental called “Choppa Style Instrumental” and eventually hooked up with rapper Choppa to add lyrics to create a song called “Choppa Style.”
He claims the song became popular and they made a deal with Take Fo’ Records to include the song on Choppa’s album. But DJ JMK claimed Take Fo’ Records had their in-house producer recreate his song, rather than pay him.
DJ JMK claims the duplicate version copied his “horn riff, arrangement and melody” and used “a piano to copy the horn melody and arrangement” of his song.
