The lawsuit claims that French stole the song from Eddie Lee Richardson, aka Hotwire the Producer. Hotwire claims the 2013 hit song is a copy of a track he released back in 2012. The “original” was apparently posted on SoundClick under the name “*Hood* Pushin’ Weight ” and”Ain’t Worried About Nothin” has simply added French’s vocals and removed his producer tag. Currently, Hotwire is looking to receive $5 million USD in profits if he wins the copyright infringement case.
Stay tuned for more details as the story develops.
