Nicki’s in some hot water over her biggest hit to date “Starships”. She is now being sued by Clive Tanaka claiming that she stole the song’s melody from his “Neu Chicago“. I think Red One is to blaim in this situtation, not Minaj because he produced it. Check out the full story below.
Reclusive electro star Tanaka filed suit against Minaj at U.S. District Court in Chicago on Tuesday claiming she used portions of his 2011 track “Neu Chicago.” The copyright infringement lawsuit also names “Starships” producer RedOne, as well as three other writers, according to the Chicago Tribune
Tanaka previously posted a mash-up of the two songs online so fans could hear the alleged similarities between the tracks. His lawyer, Christopher Niro, says, “We believe they are similar to the point that it is nearly impossible for it to be a coincidence.”
In the lawsuit, Tanaka insists his song received substantial airplay both in the U.S. and in Europe and his attorney adds, “They [the defendants] had a very good opportunity to hear it.” A representative for Minaj has yet to comment. “Starships” was released last year and became a huge hit across the world.

Just when you thought the Macadelic rapper was on a winning streak, he took an L earlier this week. You guys remember Kool Aid And Frozen Pizza? Of course you do. Do you remember the beat being created in the fine year of 1995? Mac might have forgotten as well. Lord is more than aware that the beat was lent to mac, as gave him the green light to use it. What didn’t he know? The success it had in the near future. Even though the track was given out for free on Mac’s mixtape K.I.D.S., Lord Finesse wants some of that paper. He is not enjoying the fact, that Mac distributed the 1995 instrumental under his own name without giving Lord any credit. Tough luck.
