YFN Lucci, PnB Rock Fined $1.7 Million for Stealing ‘Everyday We Lit’
Jersey-based rapper Rackboy Cam has been granted around $1.7 million out of a fight in court where he asserted that YFN Lucci and Philly rapper PnB Rock duplicated his 2016 tune ‘All that Be Lit’ for their own hit ‘Regular We Lit’.
It was a significant long-running lawful question where Rackboy guaranteed that his copyright was encroached by Lucci and PnB Rock. ‘All that Be Lit’ by the autonomous rapper came out a couple of months before ‘Regular We Lit’ which wound up being a best 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 diagram.
The claim, documented in 2018 in U.S. Region Court in Georgia, depended on similitudes between the themes of the two melodies, alongside the verses. The snare of Rackboy Cam’s track was finished by Maino. The two melodies, Rackboy Cam had asserted, incorporate verses about “adornments and ladies.” He was requesting the adjudicator to arrange preventing from deals of the tune and that YFN Lucci hand over piece of the benefits from the tune.
According to the documents filed in the court, the song ‘Everyday We Lit’ made approximately $7 million in revenue. The resemblance was enough to convince Judge Charles A. Pannell Jr. to issue a default judgment in Rackboy Cam’s favor.
Under the terms of the judgment, Rackboy Cam has been awarded $1.445 million plus legal expenses. The rapper also received writer’s credit for royalties at 50% in perpetuity from both YFN Lucci and PnB Rock.
Rackboy Cam said he had a past relationship with PnB Rock and that Lucci’s name Think It’s a Game Records once showed interest in marking him. His lawyer, Chris Nero, said Rackboy Cam even made a trip to Atlanta to meet with Think It’s a Game Records about ‘All that Be Lit’ just to track down a couple of months after the fact that they delivered a comparable melody to the majority.
“This has been an exceptionally extensive and monotonous interaction. I’m appreciative for the result, and I’m grateful it’s everything behind me,” said Rackboy in an explanation. “I’m eager to get once more into the studio and keep making music for my fans. I wish the best for all gatherings on current and future undertakings.”
