EXCLUSIVE: Migos Deny Stealing “Walk it Talk It” From Rapper
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, Migos is denying that ripped off their hit single ‘Walk It Talk It’. Founded in Lawrenceville, Georgia, in 2008, the group is composed of three rappers known by their stage names Quavo, Offset and Takeoff.
“Walk It Talk It” is featured on the trio’s third studio album, Culture II (2018). After the album’s release, it debuted at number 18 and later peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 after its release as the third single.
The group recently responded to the case filed by a musician named Leander C. Pickett who goes by the rap name M.O.S.. He claims that he released a song by the same name as the Migos hit back in 2007, way before the band did in 2018.

The group’s legal team states that the musician has not shown one “substantial” similarity in songs and can’t prove any of the band members came into contact with his work at any point.
Migos lawyer points to the musician suing filed to copyright months after his client released their song. They will request the lawsuit be dismissed.
