Looks like the Pandora’s box that accompanied the Blurred Lines verdict has really been opened. DJ Mustard tweeted recently about how both Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ and Jidenna’s track ‘Classic Man’ were “rip off’s”.
While Iggy Azalea’s hit definitely sounded like a DJ Mustard production, it wasn’t. Monae’s artist had a few words to say in an interview on Ebro In The Morning…
“Some of the people have said Iggy Azalea is getting paid off this record. I’ve seen that a lot. The truth is, we actually didn’t sample it. But ever since the decision of Robin Thicke and Pharrell, we believe that it was important to make sure that we are safe,”
There are no backings to validate DJ Mustard’s assertion of the two teams suing each other, but here’s a video of Janelle Monae and Jidenna interview on Hot 97.
