It looks like someone is trying to come for Meek Mill and his pockets! According to BOSSIP, the rapper is being sued for copyright infringement for allegedly stealing lyrics. The news site reports that Dream Rich Entertainment sued Meek last month and his record label Dream Chaser along with parent company Atlantic Records of civil conspiracy to commit copyright infringement. Dream Rich alleges that the rapper not only stole its copyrighted songs but, passed them off as his own on his last album, “Championships,” according to BOSSIP citing the company’s complaint. The music business claims that it acquired the song lyrics and copyrights for “Cold Hearted II” and “100 Summers” in 2018 after its contracted songwriter penned them. However, Dream Rich said in court docs that Meek had access to one of its songwriter’s flies when he helped himself to “100 Summers” and “Cold Hearted II“ — and recorded the copyrighted lyrics and took the title which appeared on his GRAMMY-nominated album. The company said Meek passed the songs off as his own without giving proper credit to the songwriter and is now looking for over $300,000 in damages, BOSSIP reports. Meek Mill has not publicly commented on these latest reports. However, he has been in an online feud with DJ Akademiks after the rapper asked him to stop posting him.
