An artist claiming 2 Chainz, Offset, and YG stole their collaboration “Proud” reportedly drops his lawsuit against the trio.
Solomon Clanton, a New York rapper who goes by the stage name Slugga claimed the song “Proud” released by 2 Chainz, and featuring Offset and YG is his song. Back in February 2020, the legal action was made public. Clanton claimed the rapper’s borrowed his hook and thematic elements from his own song “Proud” released in 2015.
Clanton sued 2 Chainz, Offset and YG for all profits made off “Proud,” requested a court order declaring him the copyright owner and an injunction against the artists preventing them from gaining additional radio play.
A couple of months have now passed and Clanton has dropped the suit. According to The Blast, Clanton has dropped the lawsuit without prejudice, meaning he can refile the suit. In court documents, Slugga has informed the court he is voluntarily dismissing the entire case.
2 Chainz recently lead his coalition of young rappers T.R.U. to their first collaborative drop No Face No Case.
