French Montana denies he ripped off a Florida rapper with his hit “All The Way Up”.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, French Montana is demanding to be let out of a lawsuit over the track. The rapper was sued, along with Remy Ma and Fat Joe, by a rapper named Fly Havana.
In his motion, Montana admits when he went to record the track he was presented with “a reference track, containing unfinished music and unfinished lyrics, and added to the work to create the final released version.”
He denies the “allegation that Kharbouch (Montana) had no role in writing the part he raps because Kharbouch did have a role.”
The rapper argues, “Plaintiff’s claims are barred to the extent it has forfeited or abandoned its intellectual property.” He denies all allegations of wrongdoing. Montana is asking the judge to dismiss all claims against him.
