NJ Rapper Is Awarded $1.7 MIllion Dollars From YFN Lucci’s Song

YFN Lucci’s song “Everyday We Lit,” may be in a bit of trouble. The track became a backbone on hip-hop radio in 2017, making it to No. 33 on the Billboard Hot 100, but many suspected that YFN Lucci made the song too similar to Paterson rapper Rackboy Cam.

Rackboy Cam’s 2016 song “Everything Be Lit,” which already possessed a similar chorus, was released months earlier. He had also earlier met up with YFN Lucci and PnB Rock, who is featured on “Everyday We Lit.”

Rackboy Cam was awarded $1.7 million and YFN Lucci was already owed money

On March 2, Judge Charles A. Pannell Jr. announced a negligence judgment in Cam’s favor, which awarded him $1,447,720 after PnB Rock and James, the producer, did not acknowledge the lawsuit, according to a court document analyzed by NJ Advance Media. The judgment also reflects a 2019 compensation between Cam, Think It’s a Game Records as well as YFN Lucci for an undisclosed sum of money.

Cam Granted Royalties

It was given at 50% each in perpetuity, as well as royalties from a remix featuring Lil Yachty and Wiz Khalifa too. Cam received prejudgment interest at 6.25% per year for the three-year term considering the suit was recorded on March 13, 2018, and $4,576.82 in out-of-pocket legal costs, which brought the massive total to more than $1.7 million.

Cam said, “I feel like it was pretty fair. I’m blessed, I’m satisfied. I feel like this is a big statement for Jersey because I feel like we don’t get the credit.”

Cam’s “Everything Be Lit” also features well-known Brooklyn rapper Maino, who carries the “everything be lit” chorus, and Harlem rapper Vado. Contrary to Cam’s video, YFN Lucci’s “Everyday We Lit,” both YFN Lucci and PnB Rock are on the chorus. The music video was released in 2017 and has more than 168 million views on YouTube.
