Nicki Minaj is being sued for more than $200 million over her Lil Wayne-assisted song “Rich Sex.”
Queens rapper Jawara Headley, who goes by Brinx Billions, claims Nicki ripped off his version of “Rich Sex” after he played it for her sometime prior to 2016. In the legal documents, obtained by TMZ, Brinx says Nicki told him it would be “extremely marketable and become a global hit.”
Brinx, who says he’s known Nicki since they met on MySpace in 2007, alleges that Minaj stole his song and put it on her 2018 album Queen. While he’s not listed in the album credits, Brinx insists he’s the sole author/creator/composer/writer/producer of “Rich Sex.”
In his suit, he alleges that Minaj ripped off specific lyrics such as, “It ain’t such a thing as broke and handsome.” Additionally, he says Minaj’s song has similar music, musical notes, musical arrangement, musical beats, and musical rhythm.
Brinx is suing Minaj, along with Universal Music Group, Young Money, and Cash Money, for over $200 million in damages.
