Tekashi 6ix9ine has been winning big with every single he’s released since getting out of prison last April. The first one he put out was “GOOBA,” which saw instant success with streams and views for its music video. The Brooklyn rapper is now facing a copyright lawsuit though regarding the record, according to TMZ.
Texas producer group, Beat Demons, claim that 6ix9ine used GOOBA to copy their song, “Regular.” They claim that both instrumentals are similar in their “melody, to form, to structure and function.” Beat Demon’s instrumental was also released back in January 2018, a few months before 6ix9ine really started to take off as a star.
Beat Demons also believe that 6ix9ine’s team may have heard the beat and just decided to use it without contacting them at all. GOOBA ended up debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and is at platinum status in the US. At this point though, the producers want the profits from this record in court. 6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, has since said to TMZ that they just want to take advantage of 6ix9ine’s success.
“The lawsuit is without merit and is another attempt to profit off of Tekashi’s success. We are confident that it will be dismissed.””
