It's has to be crazy when you get the okay to sample a song, but then something happens and you get threatened with a lawsuit. Our Powerhouse performer, Juice WRLD has done pretty well with his song, Lucid Dreams, which, happens to sample some musical element from rock icon, Sting and his 1993 song, Shape of My Heart. According to Hip Hop Wired, Sting gave his permission for Juice to use the song but is allegedly threatening legal action. Lucid Dreams' track producer, Nick Mira got heated about the legal action and posted up some tweets over the weekend, which, have since been deleted. But Hip Hop Wired got wind of it and Mira tweeted, “F*ck @OfficialSting and his WHOLE team. After taking 85% of Lucid Dreams (for interpolating Shape of My Heart, NOT EVEN sampling) he threatened to take us to court for trying to get any %. Sting ALSO flexed stealing our money and said it put his grandkids through college.” Meanwhile, Juice was unbothered and he tweeted, “Lost millions made millions…the song impacted to many ppl in a good way for me to be upset over it. There’s always more money to be made and I will make it so."
