Juice Wrld is headed to court.
According to court documents obtained by XXL, members of the former pop-punk band Yellowcard have filed a suit against Juice for copyright infringement over his 2017 track "Lucid Dreams," claiming he illegally sampled elements of their 2006 song, “Holly Wood Died.”
XXL reports the complaint was filed in United States District Court Central District of California for more than $15 million in damages, as well as past and future royalties for the song. Yellowcard also claim they should receive damages from Juice Wrld’s tours and other public appearances because, they say, the “overwhelming success” of "Lucid Dreams" launched his career and provided him "substantial opportunities to tour and perform around the world.”
