The only personal information provided in the suit states that Tanaka was born in 1976 and is a U.S. citizen. His attorney, Christopher Niro, said Tanaka was “working on a new album and screenplay,” possibly in South America. “Argentina, from what I was told,” Niro said in an interview at his Loop offices at Niro, Haller & Niro. “He’s kind of a reclusive he makes and produces music and that’s his goal.” In addition to Minaj, the lawsuit names RedOne, whose real name is Nadir Khayat, a Moroccan producer and songwriter behind hits for stars like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull. Also named are three other writers on “Starships,” Carl Falk, Wayne Hector and Rami Yacoub. Calls to Minaj’s manager, Manny Halley, as well as to representatives of RedOne, were not returned Tuesday. According to the suit, RedOne and Minaj’s other collaborators are citizens of Sweden and may have been living there around the time when “Neu Chicago” was being used in television advertising campaigns for a clothing retailer as well as a Swedish beverage company. “They had a very good opportunity to hear it,” Niro said. Copyright lawsuits are fairly common in federal court, from amateurs who claim an artist stole an idea off a mix tape they submitted to accusations over unattributed music sampling, according to industry experts. In one high-profile case last month, a dispute between pop star Robin Thicke and the estate of funk legend Marvin Gaye landed in a federal court in California after members of Gaye’s camp complained about similarities between Thicke’s summer hit “Blurred Lines” and compositions by Gaye as well as the band Funkadelic. Thicke claims the Gaye estate is trying to copyright an entire genre. Matthew Sag, a Loyola University Chicago law professor specializing in copyright infringement, said the line between imitation and illegal copying can be blurry. “You want to reward creativity, but you don’t want to accidentally punish people for using what are the building blocks of an entire style of music,” Sag said.
The Young Money cash queen has spent the summer lending her voice to tracks for Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, Mario, Ciara and Nelly, blessing them all with stunning music video appearances to match. Well, the rapping Barbie shows no signs of slowing down. On Tuesday (September 3), Minaj appeared as a guest in two new music videos: one from DJ Khaled and another from Wale . Khaled’s “I Wanna Be With You” is the first collaboration between the two since the charismatic DJ brought a 10-karat diamond ring up to MTV News and cooked up a marriage proposal for his YMCMB labelmate. There were no vows exchanged in the video, but Nicki managed to stand out in the Colin Tilley-directed clip, which also features Rick Ross and Future. In the clip, which premiered on MTV Jams Tuesday, a blond-haired Nicki sits against a purple backdrop, wearing a white dress and rapping her rapid-fire rhymes. “Baddest bitch, I’m the catalyst/ Ain’t never been done, bitch I added this,” she rhymes. Throughout the clip Nicki keeps a serious tone about her, once again proving that she can hold her own when matched up against the boys. Wale’s “Clappers” takes on a drastically different tone, with Nicki sporting a drastically different look. The latest single from Wale’s The Gifted is an ode to big butts that is set to a go-go-inspired instrumental. After the MMG standout and guest spitter Juicy J get their go, Nicki brings up the rear in the rump-shaking party, wearing a yellow tank top and pink tights. “Got ass for days, come activate/ This ass on fire, evacuate,” she rhymes while she twerks for the camera. While the Khaled video comes off as a more serious affair, Wale’s Benny Boom-directed clip is light-hearted, fun and a lot more colorful. At the end of the day we get to see two sides of Nicki Minaj literally.
Chicago artist claims Nicki Minaj copied his song
Flocka’s humorous reply was: ‘Kids please don’t do drugs @gucci1017 is the perfect outcome lol #IceCreamCone.” Kids please dont do drugs @gucci1017 is the perfect outcome lol #IceCreamCone Waka Flocka Flame (@WakaFlockaBSM) September 9, 2013 The 33-year-old Alabama rapper went on to detail his relationship with Minaj, rehashing how he helped her when she was just starting to make a name for herself in the industry. “Did I put nikki n 50 dollar room then let her move in,” Mane tweeted. “Then help her get an apartment im a fool 4 a bubble butt but I hate a–shots fake ho.” Getty Images Gucci Mane’s tweets claim he also slept with Fantasia Barrino and Ciara. The “I Just Wanna Party” rapper was referring to when Minaj lived in Atlanta in the early stages of her career while being managed by Deb Antney, Waka Flocka’s mom and Mane’s former manager. Gooch also responded to the former “American Idol” judge’s comments about him needing an intervention after several instances of incarceration. “Tell. Her intervention my d–k in her throat I moved dat b—h to atl,” he continued. “B—h u sleepin n d car. B—h I pulled dat b—h off wayne bus.” But Mane’s Twitter rage certainly didn’t stop at Minaj. In true tell-all fashion, the rapper claimed to have bedded several familiar industry ladies including, Monica, Keyshia Cole, Fantasia and Ciara.
