Over the last several days, rappers and Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul and Juicy J have been hit with multiple copyright infringement lawsuits. Now, duo has just been hit with another one, this time alongside rapper G-Eazy for the illegal sampling in the track, “No Limit.”
TMZ reports that Juicy J, along with G-Eazy, has been named in a lawsuit filed by Memphis artists DJ Squeeky and Gaylon Love who claim that G-Eazy’s hit single “No Limit” sampled their 1993 track “Looking 4 Da Chewin” without their permission. The suit is seeking hope that a portion of the singles profits. Cardi B and A$AP Rocky, who were also featured on the original track, were not named in the suit. Juicy was featured on the remix alongside French Montana and Belly. However, neither of them were mentioned in the suit either.
According to the duo’s attorney, the suit is taking aim at G-Eazy because it is his song. However, their reason for coming after Juicy J is because “he hails from Memphis, so he should have known he was rapping over a popular Southern hip-hop track that first hit the scene in the early ’90s,” TMZ wrote.
Juicy J nor G-Eazy have commented on the lawsuit. Check out the official video for “No Limit” below.
