Cardi B, Of The City Girls, Master P & More Sued For "War Style" Producer

War, French Montana and Yo Gotti are among others.

New Orleans, LA – DJ JMK, the producer of War of the revival of hit single "War Style", has sued several rappers and producers of copyright infringement. According to the NBC affiliate WDSU, JMK, says the Cardi B and Master P are some of the many artists who have used their pace without the approval or compensation.

The New Orleans-based DJ, whose real name is Kirk Edwards, claims that he agreed to a deal with the War of the label Take Fo Records for the flat rate of royalties for the "War-Style" beat. He also receives a 30 percent bonus if the song secured national distribution. .centered-ad {

But the DJ alleges that he never received any payment while a producer named William "Beach" Nelson was hired to recreate the instrumental without JMK's permission. Nelson supposedly replicates the "horn riff, the arrangement and the melody" and uses a piano "to copy the horn of the melody and the arrangement."

JMK is looking for the money
