French Montana could soon be taken to court. A rapper accused a Moroccan-American artist of stealing his lyrics. He asks Montana to solve the problem. Otherwise, the courts will deal with him.
Apparently, rapper Turk told his lawyer to send a letter of demand to the lawyer in French Montana. The letter alleges that Montana stole some of Turk’s lyrics for a track called Handstand, released in 2021.
Here’s everything you need to know.
French Montana charged with stealing lyrics to 2021 song Handstand
According to TMZ’s claim, Turk claimed that rapper French Montana tore lyrics from his band’s song without permission.
Tab Virgil Junior aka Turk is a member of a group called The Hot Boys. He claims that Montana took the word from the hit track ‘I Need A Hot Girl’, released in 1999.
In the claim, Turk also noted that the music video for Montana’s track Handstand, which contained the stolen lyrics, had already been viewed by users more than 17 million times on YouTube.
For Unversed, The Hot Boys were a hip-hop band formed in the ’90s. The group included members such as Lil Wayne, BG, Juvenile and Turk.
Hot Boys’ single ‘I Need A Hot Girl’ was a hip-hop group hit. The track even made it to Billboard’s Hot 100.
French Montana’s Handstand track features artists like Doja Cat and Saweetie.
The lyrics of the track are ‘I need a project b****, I need a hood mouse b****. One af*** and don’t say she took that one.’
These are the lyrics that Turk claims to have composed and performed in Hot Boys’ memoirs.
Nevertheless, sources have come forward to reveal that Montana has purchased his song beats. The guy added that everything was clear when the rapper bought the hook.
It is also noted that all claims about the state of Montana are grossly misleading.
Team members in Montana are known to be working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.
Turk’s attorney Paul M. Aloise Jr. of Brooks LeBoeuf also said he was willing to settle the matter without going to court.
Nevertheless, we hope that everything will be resolved soon.
