Yellowcard Drops Lawsuit Against Juice WRLD For ‘Lucid Dreams’ Melody

Even though Juice WRLD passed away in December of 2019, his estate has continued to find itself in legal battles. Hot New Hip Hop reported today, however, that one of his legal disputes have been forgotten.

The outlet claims Yellowcard sued Juice WRLD‘s estate over the song, “Lucid Dreams,” which reportedly used part of their track’s melody. However, due to recent events, the band dropped its $15 million lawsuit against the late performing artist.

For more context, Yellowcard’s team sued Juice WRLD for using melodies from their song, “Holly Wood Died,” for WRLD’s classic song, “Lucid Dreams.” In a statement to Pitchford, Richard S. Busch said the dismissal was “without prejudice,” which means it won’t be refiled.

According to the band’s lawyer, Yellowcard felt uncomfortable about filing a lawsuit against Juice WRLD’s estate considering it’s helmed by the rapper’s mother, who, obviously, has tragically dealt with the loss of her son.

Yellowcard has been “incredibly sympathetic” about the dispute since the young artist’s death was revealed, their lawyer explained. Moreover, they’re currently considering their path forward in the dispute.

Reportedly, the band has retained the legal right to refile the lawsuit sometime in the future if they decide, however they chose to drop the lawsuit on their own.

As it was noted above, Juice WRLD passed away at the ending of 2019 at the Chicago O’Hare International Airport. He died after succumbing to a fatal overdose of several drugs. Following his death, the artist’s estate revealed another project in his name, Legends Never Die, which went to number one this year.

Hip-hop fans know this won’t be the first time the estate of a fallen rapper has released a posthumous project. Earlier this year, Pop Smoke’s new record, executive produced by 50 Cent, came out and it went to the top of the charts as well.

As it was previously reported by Variety, Yellowcard filed a lawsuit against Juice WRLD back in October 2019. They claimed the rapper used their song for “Lucid Dreams,” which came out in 2017.

The band also sued the co-songwriter, Taz Taylor, Nicholas Mira, BMG Rights Management, Interscope Records, and Grade A Productions, among others.
