French Montana claims he brought the beat and thought everything was cleared.
Rapper French Montana is being sued by fellow rapper Turk who was signed to Cash Money, for copying lyrics and has demanded that French settle the matter quickly or face the consequences.
Turk of the ‘Hot Boys’ sent a demand letter to French Montana’s lawyer, alleging that French plagiarized portions of their client’s lyrics for his 2021 song “Handstand.” Tab Virgil Jr., which is Turk’s real name, claims that French copied lyrics from his band’s 1999 song “I Need A Hot Girl” without permission and the song with the stolen lyrics has already received over 17 million views on YouTube.
Lil Wayne, B.G., Juvenile, and Turk were members of the hip hop group The Hot Boys, which was created in the 1990s. French had actually purchased the beat and the hook with the thought that everything was clear, according to a source with firsthand knowledge. However, there must have been some misunderstanding, as French’s team is already working to correct the problem.
Turk’s lawyer, Brooks LeBoeuf’s Paul M. Aloise Jr., says they’re willing to settle out of court, no word on if they have settled as of yet
