Jamie Foxx And 2 Chainz Being Sued For 'Party Ain't A Party'
According to a lawsuit, his new track is identical to that of another artist...
The Nontra Records lawsuit which was filed on Thursday (September 18), alleges that the instrumental used in the track was originally sent to J Rand, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
According to the complaint, DJ Mustard sent the instrumental to J Rand's then record company Poe Boy Music Group to act as material for his next release.
The lawsuit states: "Specifically, the underlying material and Jaime Foxx's lyrics contained in the Subsequent Work are identical to the lyrics sung by J Rand in the sound recording of the Original Work."
DJ Mustard's legal representative commented: "DJ Mustard did not grant any rights to a third party to exploit the recording 'Party Ain't A Party' and, accordingly, this claim against DJ Mustard has absolutely no merit."
Nontra Records is looking for upwards of $150,000 (£92,000) for copyright infringement.
