Meek Mill Sued for Allegedly Stealing Lyrics
Meek Mill is being accused of stealing lyrics.
The Philly rapper has been sued for copyright infringement by a Philadelphia record label that claims he lifted two songs from them. According to Bossip, Dream Rich Entertainment filed suit against Meek last month, accusing his record label Dream Chasers and parent company Atlantic Records of civil conspiracy to commit copyright infringement.
Dream Rich alleges that Meek stole copyrighted lyrics and titles for “100 Summers” and “Cold Hearted II” and tried to pass them off as his own. In court documents, Dream Rich said Meek had access to one of its songwriter’s lyrics and recorded them for his 2018 album Championships.
Meek has yet to respond to the case. Dream Rich says it has attempted to contact Meek about the alleged song infringement to no avail.
The label wants a judge to decide and is seeking at least $75,000 for each alleged infraction, or more than $300,000.
Last year, Meek relaunched Dream Chasers in partnership with Roc Nation and is readying a compilation project from the label.
