Juice Wrld seems to be getting sued AGAIN!

This time by a 16-year-old music producer who claims the rapper used one of his beats without his permission on his hit song, “Lean Wit Me.”

According to The Blast, the plaintiff, Jerome Willisch claims that he created a track called “Ice” which he says the rapper Juice WRLD used for “the essential beat and foundation” for, “Lean Wit Me.”

The song was initially released on May 23, 2018, on the rapper’s album, “Goodbye & Good Riddance.” The music video to the song was later posted on YouTube in August where it has accumulated more than 36 million views.

However, Willisch filed the copyright lawsuit for his song “Ice” a week ago with a guardian. It is not clear why he waited so long.

In the suit, the plaintiff names Juice WRLD, his producer Nick Mira, Interscope Records, and Universal Music Group as defendants. He is suing for unspecified damages.
