Tracy Chapman Sues Nicki Minaj Over Nas Collaboration “Sorry” #IAAThePlug


Do You guys remember ’90s singer Tracy Chapman… Yeahhh man… Yess ladies and gents its true, Ms. Tracy is reportedly suing our girl  Nicki Minaj for ripping off one of her original songs. According to TMZ, Chapman claims Minaj stole 1988’s “Baby Can I Hold You” for her own track “Sorry” featuring Nas, which was initially supposed to be on Nicki’s fourth album Queen. 

Sources say that Nicki was well aware she needed permission to use parts of Chapman’s song. In June, Minaj and her team made multiple requests to license “Baby Can I Hold You” and all requests were denied. Failure to get the license was one of the reasons she cited for Queen’s delay. If you don’t remember the original record from Tracy Chapman , Check it out now below!

In August, she tweeted, “So there’s a record on #Queen that features 1of the greatest rappers of all time. Had no clue it sampled the legend #TracyChapman — do I keep my date & lose the record? Or do I lose the record & keep my date? ‍Do we push #Queen back 1week? Ugh! I’m torn, y’all help. Tracy Chapman, can you please hit me. omg for the love of #Queen.”
