Megan Thee Stallion & Big Sean Settle Lawsuit Filed Against Them Over ‘Go Crazy’ Song

Megan Thee Stallion and Big Sean have finally reached an agreement regarding their “Go Crazy” lawsuit.

As previously reported, two men sued Megan Thee Stallion, real name Megan Pete, and Big Sean, real name Sean Anderson, over their collaboration on the track “Go Crazy,” which is featured on the “Hot Girl’s” 2020 debut album “Good News.” Plaintiffs Duawn Payne and Harrell James claimed that the rappers ripped off their 2012 song titled “Krazy.”

Court documents obtained by AllHipHop state that the men informed Judge Vernon S. Broderick of the agreed settlement. Payne and James’ attorneys wrote: 

“We represent the plaintiffs in the above-referenced action and write on behalf of the parties to inform the Court that the parties have reached an agreement in principle to settle their dispute in its entirety,”

They added:

“We ask that the Court stay this matter for 30 days so that the parties may finalize their terms of settlement.”

The plaintiffs, who are Detroit natives, believe that Big Sean must’ve heard their track in his hometown. They said they performed it at numerous nightclubs and passed out CDs on the streets of Michigan. The lawsuit read:

“The sale of thousands of physical copies of CDs featuring the Copyrighted Work on the streets of West Detroit and the parking lots of hip hop clubs in West Detroit frequented by [Big Sean] provide further access of the Copyrighted Work to Defendants.”

In the beginning, Payne and James sent a cease and desist letter to Megan Thee Stallion and Big Sean in March. They originally sought all compensation from “Go Crazy” as well as damages. The Texas hottie’s album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, following 100,000 sales in album-equivalent units in its first week.

It seems that Megan has been spending her time dealing with lawsuits and addressing the false information behind them. As previously reported, the 27-year-old took to Twitter to set the record straight about the lawsuit she has with her estranged record label 1501 Certified Entertainment. The “Sweetie Pie” rapper wrote:

“No judge has ruled anything abt this 1501 case, this information is not accurate the court date for this isn’t even until DECEMBER 12TH … we HAVE NOT went to court and got a summary judgment. Please stop spreading misinformation thanks.”

Accusing the men at 1501 of sabotaging her by not clearing her music she continued:

“..the men over in that camp haven’t been clearing my music to be synced anywhere (shows, movies, etc) so I ALMOST couldn’t even do my Amazon performance tonight!”
