Migos Win Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Over “Walk It Talk It”

Written by on November 13, 2019

Migos’ year-old legal battle with rapper M.O.S. is finally over.

According to legal documents obtained by Complex, U.S. District Judge Analisa Nadine Torres ruled in Migos favor and dismissed the copyright infringement lawsuit on Tuesday. Torres determined M.O.S. had no case, as the phrase “walk it like I talk it” is so common it was not susceptible to copyright protection. The judge then pointed to a number of other rap songs that used similar lyrics: Paul Wall’s 2005 record “March ‘n’ Step” (“Walk it like you talk it”), Young Jeezy’s 2006  cut “3 A.M.” (I walk it how I talk it), and Wiz Khalifa’s 2007 song “Be Easy” (“Walk it how I talk it”).

Here is the M.O.S.’s version at the center of the case.
