Cardi B Slams $5M Mixtape Artwork Lawsuit As A “Celebrity Shakedown”


Cardi B wants the lawsuit removed.
Lawsuits continue to pile up for Cardi B. As his profile grows, more and more people come for him in hopes of a bag. Shortly after the success of “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi was sued by a man who claimed that the rapper took his picture for the cover art of Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 1. He even goes on to claim that because of the picture, Cardi can skyrocket fame. But Cardi did not budge, demanding that the judge handling the case reject the case.

According to The Blast, Cardi B claimed the lawsuit filed by Kevin Michael Brophy was nothing but a “celebrity search.” In a document submitted to the court, he said, “Allegations of Complaint have so far been fabricated and lacking substance, on their faces, so they oppose belief. After having more than a year to make jurisdictional discoveries, the Plaintiff did not find any substance to place meat on bones, brittle bones from accusations of his vague conclusions. His claim, written in sensational language, is inherently, and clearly, absurd. “

Cardi goes on to argue that the mixtape photo itself has never been sold for merchandise or has not been fully monetized since it was released. In terms of his claim that his photo launched the success of Cardi, he said “his rapid rise in career was actually a direct result of the release, massive promotion and great success of the single” Yellow Bodak. “

Cardi demanded that all cases be thrown out.
