Eddie Lee Richardson, who goes by Hotwire the Producer, has filed a lawsuit against French Montana for his song “Ain’t Worried About Nothin.”

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that the song was stolen from Hotwire the Producer.

Hotwire states that his track is an instrumental with a unique and artistic array of digital sounds and rhythms tagged with a single and repeating vocal.

Hotwire claims the 2013 hit song is a copy of a track he released back in 2012. The original was apparently posted on SoundClick under the name “Hood Pushin Weight” and “Ain’t Worried About Nothin” has simply added French’s vocals and removed his producer tag.

Hotwire seeks jury and payment of $5 million USD in profits for copyright infringement.
