Drake Being Sued For Stealing Beats

drake and big freedia being sued for stealing beat

We know that Drake’s used a Big Freedia song for his beat on “In My Feelings” but the hit track also sampled someone elses original tune. Samuel Nicholas III. who goes by Sam Skully, is suing¬† both Drake and Bid Freedia claiming they used his beat. He also claims Drake stole another one of his beats for his wildly successful track, “Nice For What.” Skully says in 2000 he released a CD in New Orleans that featured a song called “Roll Call,” and that the beat is used in Drake’s two chart topping songs. Skully says he had no idea his original music had been used until Drake’s music was already a smash. Skully is also suing Asylum Records, Cash Money Records and Republic Records for damages.
