Nicki Minaj Being Sued

Nicki Minaj is being sued by Tracy Chapman for stealing her song. Earlier this year, Nicki recorded a song with Nas allegedly using a sample from Tracy’s hit song “Baby Can I Hold You.” Tracy claims Nicki made multiple requests to use the music, but Tracy rejected her every time. Funkmaster Flex got his hands on the song, leaked it on the radio, and the song went viral!

Nicki’s team tried to make the song disappear but the damage was done. Tracy is now suing Nicki to ban her from ever releasing the song, and an undisclosed amount of money.
