City Girls, Cardi B, and More Hit With Lawsuit For Illegal Sampling

Uh oh, this hot girl summer may have to cost a few hot girls. There is a Louisiana DJ who is trying to sue a few people for sampling his music without permission. According to The Blast, Kirk Edwards, who goes by DJ JMK, claims he created an instrumental called Choppa Style Instrumental years ago and of course that was used by the rapper Choppa to add some lyrics. Well he says when he got with Choppa, he made a deal with a record company to use the song for Choppa but there was an in-house producer who recreated the song and didn't pay the DJ. DJ JMK claims the duplicate version copied his "horn riff, arrangement and melody" and used "a piano to copy the horn melody and arrangement" of his song. The DJ claims there was even another unauthorized version on the song with Master P jumped on remix with Choppa. Since then, the song has been sampled many times, including Yo Gotti and French Montana's "Oh Yeah," City Girls and Cardi's "Twerk" and Trouble and City Girls "She a Winner." DJ JMK is now trying to get all of his money and he is suing the artists as well as record labels over copyright infringement and breach of contract for unspecified damages.
