Meek Mill is reportedly facing a $300,000 lawsuit for allegedly stealing lyrics to two of his songs, multiple sources report on Thursday, July 2.

According to an exclusive from Bossip, the Philadelphia-based rapper has been slapped with a copyright infringement case from Dream Rich Entertainment. The boutique record company is also based in Philadelphia. They alleged that Meek Mill stole the lyrics for "Cold Hearted II" and "100 Summers." 

Aside from the "All Eyes on You" artist, Dream Rich is also coming after Meek Mill's record label Dream Chaser. Its parent company Atlantic Records was also named. The defendants in the lawsuit allegedly committed civil conspiracy towards copyright infringement.

The record company explained that, in 2018, they earned both the lyrics and the respective copyrights to "Cold Hearted II" and "100 Summers." The online entertainment news portal said they also had a copy of the court papers. Dream Rich detailed that Meek Mill had access to the lyrics of one of their songwriters. Mill then recorded both songs using the copyrighted lyrics and titles.

Dream Rich Entertainment also said that they sent representatives to reason with the rapper about the songs. Unfortunately, according to the plaintiff, the talks bore no fruit, leading to the lawsuits. They have taken to the courts, seeking about $75,000 for every charge in the lawsuit. The total amount of damages is about $300,000.

From "Championships" to Lawsuits

Both "Cold Hearted II" and "100 Summers" were released in 2018 as a part of his fourth studio album, "Championships." Meek Mill's 2018 release is both a commercial and critical success, debuting at the top of the US Billboard 200 with 229,000 equivalent album sales in its first week. By June 2019, it was already received a platinum certification from the RIAA for achieving more than a million-unit sales in the US alone.

The album features appearances from many hip-hop stars. Cardi B, Drake, 21 Savage, Jay-Z, Future, and Rick Ross are among the artists who have collaborated with Meek Mill on the 19-track setlist.

In a Billboard review of Meek Mill's "Championships," Sowmya Krishnamurthy writes that while Mill raps "with the same fervor he's always had," there was a "discernible focus on Championships." Krishnamurthy singled out the Meek Mill - Drake collab "On Me," noting it is a "high point" of the album.

In the British music-lifestyle publication Clash, Aaron Bishop praised "Championships" as Mill's best album to date. Bishop also noted how this album displayed the artist's "growth and maturity, discussing the system and how it affected him."

Meek Mill first started on his career with the short-lived hip-hop collective "The Bloodhoundz, "back in 2008. In February 2011, he signed under Rick Ross' label Maybach Music Group," where he released his debut album "Dreams and Nightmares" the following year. MMG and Warner Bros. Records released it. "Dreams and Nightmares" was supported by the lead track "Amen," which featured Drake.

He founded his own label imprint, "Dream Chasers Records," after his mixtapes. Since then, he has released other albums: 2015's "Dreams Worth More Than Money" and 2017's "Wins & Losses." His latest album to date is 2018's "Championships."
