6ix9ine and his legal team have settled a copyright lawsuit filed by Texas-based production group, Beatdemons over the artists’ 2020 single “Gooba.” The song was 6ix9ine first release after serving time in prison, and the song reached number #3. According to court documents, the case involved TenThousand Projects, Create Music Group, Andrew Green, and Jahnei Clarke.
Beatdemons’ lawsuit claimed 6ix9ine’s copied the melody, structure, and overall composition of their 2018 song “Regular.” “The settlement in principle is conditioned on and subject to the parties entering into a written settlement agreement approved and signed by the parties,” the settlement reads. “The parties anticipate that the written settlement agreement will be finalized within the next forty-five (45) days and that a stipulation of dismissal of the entire case, with a waiver of fees and costs, will be filed shortly thereafter.”
“Right now, I am struggling to make ends meet. I do not know if I will ever command the kind of advances I was paid before my arrest, and my career stalled,” said 6ix9ine.
“I did receive large advances under the recording artist and merchandising agreements prior to my arrest,” the rapper stated in the docs. “However, I do not receive any royalties under those agreements either since my royalty accounts remain unrecouped.”
6ix9ine added, “It will surely bankrupt me in a way from which I will never recover to the permanent detriment and hardship of the family members who rely upon me.”
