According to TMZ, 2 Chainz, YG and Offset are being sued over the single, “Proud” by Solomon Clanton known as Slugga. He said he released a song called “Proud” in 2015, three years before 2 Chainz dropped his track. He also claimed that the songs follow similar musical and lyrical patterns such as as the hook and even the themes itself. Slugga said both songs share the same hook, rapping, “I’m just trying to make my mama proud” as well as the spoken intro. Slugga accuses 2 Chainz of using the “same climactic moment and the same 2/4 time signature of two beats per measure.”
However 2 Chainz, Offset or YG are yet to respond to this suit publicly, Clanton is going after Def Jam and 2 Chainz, demanding profits from the song released through Def Jam and a ruling to prohibit the song from getting any radio play.
More news would be shared soon on this case.
Have a listen to both “Proud” versions.
