Yung Bleu Denies Stealing Songs From Producer Amid Copyright Infringement Lawsuit: He Got Paid For All The Beats He Did
Update #2 (June 4th): Yung Bleu has denied copyright allegations over his hit songs “Miss It”and “Ice On My Baby.”
He told The Shade Room,
“He [Ice] got paid for all the beats he did on that project. We were on the come up together. He was an unknown producer. The songs just happened to blow up after he sold his rights… He sold his rights to my manager, Taquari (Boosie’s brother), for $1,500. He didn’t know it was gonna blow up.”
Original Story (June 3rd): Rappers Boosie and Yung Bleu have found themselves in some legal trouble.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, music producer Ice Starr is alleging that Yung Bleu stole instrumentals for two of his most popular songs. Yung Bleu is accused of using the producer’s beats on “Miss It” and “Ice On My Baby” without his knowledge or consent.
On top of these two songs, Ice Starr alleges that the majority of Yung Bleu’s 2018 Investments 5 album also used his music without authorization. In fact, the producer claims that Yung Bleu began taking his music for unauthorized use back in 2017–and Ice Starr allegedly hasn’t received any compensation from song royalties.
However, it’s worth noting that Yung Bleu‘s latest hit–“You’re Mines Still”–is reportedly one song that Ice Starr claims did not use his music.
Regarding Boosie, the producer claims that he was in on Yung Bleu‘s alleged antics. Yung Bleu is signed to Boosie‘s label–Bad Azz Music Syndicate–and the label allegedly had Ice Starr sign away his rights to “Miss It” after it had already been released without his knowledge. The producer alleges that this was done so Yung Bleu could allegedly continue profiting off the unauthorized use of Ice Starr‘s recordings.
Resultingly, Ice Starr is suing for copyright infringement and wants to profit off the tracks that Yung Bleu made with the producer’s allegedly stolen beats.
Viewers can see that he had a very public, working relationship with Yung Bleu dating back to at least late 2017.
Neither Yung Bleu nor Boosie have commented on the lawsuit.
