Soulja Boy is being sued by a Unauthorized for the use of an unauthorized video in one of the rapper’s music videos.
The SODMG rapper was named in the new lawsuit filed by a Las Vegas chauffeur. The Blast reported that Soulja Boy filmed chauffeur and then put the clip in his music video without getting authorization. Kamilah Daily claimed that the rapper hired his company in February last year to transport himself, his manager, and director around Vegas.
During the ride, Daily says Soulja Boy’s crew started filming with their camera phones while the rapper turn-up. He said at first it didn’t seem like it was a big deal until he later found out that the footage was used in his “Bling” music video without his consent. He also claimed that he requested for the video to be taken down and he was ignored so now he is suing.
“I am a private person, so I have kept quiet about this whole legal matter with Soulja Boy,” Daily said. “This video has circulated throughout social media outlets and was requested to be taken down. The video originally was taken down off one of his YouTube accounts but keeps being reposted over and over again. I have driven A-list celebrities and their families and I never had to go through anything like this with them or had problems.”
