If one rapper has her way, Tyga’s 2019 will be nothing like his 2018, as he s being sued for allegedly ripping off said rapper for his song, Swap Meet.
Pretty Maw, a rapper/songwriter in question, claims in a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ … Tyga stole portions of her song, 17th, and used them without paying up.
Maw claims she and Tyga had a deal in which he would pay her “a fixed monetary amount” for his use of her song, along with royalties from “Swap Meet,” which was released in September of last year. His song has more than 7 million views on YouTube.
She says not only that, Tyga induced her into allowing him to use her image and likeness for his song.
Pretty Maw does not list the similarities between her song and his, but says “Swap Meet heavily samples” her work.
She’s asking for money and an order stopping Tyga from ripping her off.
Tyga is no stranger to litigation, as he had a few lawsuits to deal with last year … including one for allegedly bailing on a gig in Dubai, and another for allegedly not paying rent.
He also filed a $10 Million suit of his own.
