Yung BlueHip-hop fame only arrived after using music from a named producer Ice star for his hit, “Miss It” … at least that’s Ice’s story, and he says he didn’t get a dime in royalties for it.
According to new legal documents – obtained by TMZ – Ice Starr is a producer who creates compositions and recordings for rappers to use under license, but claims that YB started ripping his music in 2017 for unauthorized use.
Ice says 2 of Bleu’s most successful songs – “Miss It” and “Ice On My Baby” – hijacked her instrumental work, “without her knowledge, without permission and without any compensation.”
The producer claims the same is true for most of Yung Bleu’s album “Investments 5” … which Ice says boosted Bleu’s popularity and made him a hip-hop star.
As to where Boosie is coming… Ice claims that the rapper’s Bad Azz Music label – to which Yung Bleu is signed – prompted him to enter into an invalid deal to waive his rights after “Miss It” had already been released without his knowledge.
Ice claims this was done so that YB could continue to profit from the unauthorized use of Ice’s recordings. BTW, Bleu’s most recent hit, “Your Mines Still” features Duck, but this one doesn’t use Ice’s music.
Ice Starr is suing for copyright infringement and wants a reduction in profits and future royalties from Yung Bleu’s hit songs. We reached out to the rappers … no word in return.
