Memphis rapper Juicy J, real name Jordan Houston, Columbia Records and Sony Music Entertainment are all named in a new lawsuit by Creative Dream Productions and video producer Mahad Dar over Juicy J’s “Bandz A Make Her Dance” music video.
Mahad Dar, executive producer from Creative Dream Productions, produced the music video which was released featuring Juicy J with 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne over the remix of his chart-topping hit single “Bandz A Make Her Dance.”
MemphisRap.com has learned that a new lawsuit was filed on Friday, October 3, by Mahad Dar of Creative Dream Productions over the copyright of the music video.
Apparently, the video producer is accusing Sony, Columbia and Juicy J of not forking over money from the profits made from the music video which they released without them paying for his rights of the video.
The lawsuit, which was filed in California Central District Court, claims that Sony, Columbia and Juicy J distributed the music video but did not pay towards the production costs while attempting to strip the video producer Dar and his company of their ownership rights of the video.
It was back in September 2012 when Juicy J’s new music video for the song “Bandz A Make Her Dance” was released over the Internet causing a ‘twerking’ storm.
Juicy J’s “Bandz A Make Her Dance” is not new to controversy. It was back around October 2012 when Juicy J came under fire for placing Miami Northwestern High School’s marching band in his video allegedly without them knowing the ‘racy’ nature of the video.
Also Juicy J was accused by a local Memphis rapper of not keeping his deal with the alleged ghostwriter of the song which was to allegedly to help the aspiring songwriter grow in his career, according to his claim back in 2013.
