Ice Spice, the popular artist, is currently facing a legal battle over her chart-topping song “In Ha Mood.” The lawsuit comes from rapper D.Chamberz and his producer, who claim that the song is a direct copy of their own work.
Ice Spice is facing a lawsuit from rapper D.Chamberz and his producer, who claim that her song “In Ha Mood” infringes upon their earlier work “In That Mood.” The lawsuit alleges that Ice Spice’s song replicates various elements of the original track, and seeks financial compensation and damages.
Allegations of Copyright Infringement
D.Chamberz alleges that he wrote, recorded, and released a song titled “In That Mood” a year prior to Ice Spice’s release. According to the lawsuit, he asserts that Ice Spice’s song replicates not only the beat, but also the lyrics, hook, rhythmic structure, metrical placement, and narrative context of his original track.
Furthermore, D.Chamberz claims that his song received airplay on Hot 97 FM in NYC, a station near where Ice Spice and her producer, Riot, reside. He suggests that it is probable that Riot may have come across his song through these means, supported by social media evidence.
Legal Action and Claims
In response to the alleged infringement, D.Chamberz is seeking at least half of the song’s publishing and other revenue, in addition to damages. Ice Spice’s “In Ha Mood” has achieved significant success, being certified gold and amassing over 45 million views on YouTube.
As of now, there has been no response from Ice Spice’s camp regarding the lawsuit.
