Drake hit with lawsuit over “In My Feelings” and “Nice for What”

The songs apparently used uncredited samples from a New Orleans musician.

Drake has reportedly been sued over allegedly uncredited samples used in his 2018 songs “In My Feelings” and “Nice for What.”

Samuel Nicholas III—a New Orleans musician who goes by Sam Skully—has filed a lawsuit against Drizzy for two uncredited samples: one from his 2000 song “Roll Call” on “In My Feelings,” plus another beat found on “Nice for What.”

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Skully alleges that the rapper didn’t get his permission to use the beats and is suing for damages. In addition to Drake, the lawsuit also names bounce musician Big Freedia⁠—who appears on “In My Feelings”⁠—as well as record labels Asylum, Cash Money and Republic as defendants.


“In My Feelings” and “Nice for What” were two of 2018’s biggest hits: Both topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for several weeks last year. Drizzy recently dropped his compilation album, Care Package, which collects 17 of the rapper’s older loosies.
