Tekashi 69 reaches settlement with Beatdemons over his 2020 hit single “GOOBA,” as the Brooklyn rapper continues to work towards his comeback.
After his release from prison in 2020, Tekashi 69 dropped “GOOBA” as part of his return. The single debuting at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Along with the single was the infamous music video, which broke the record for most viewed hip hop music video in 24 hours.
All that success came with a price, as Tekashi 69 was hit with a lawsuit. Beatdemons, Texas-based production company, claimed 69 copied the melody, structure, and overall composition of their 2018 song “Regular.”
According to court documents obtained by Complex, 6ix9ine and his legal team have decided to settle the legal battle. “The parties anticipate that the written settlement agreement will be finalized within the next forty-five (45) days and that a stipulation of dismissal of the entire case, with a waiver of fees and costs, will be filed shortly thereafter,” the settlement read.
It appears, Tekashi 69 is gearing up a major comeback, but first is cleaning up any prior legal problems. The settlement with Beatdemons comes weeks after the artist stated he was “struggling to make ends meet.” In the court documents obtained by Complex, Tekashi said, “I did receive large advances under the recording artist and merchandising agreements prior to my arrest. However, I do not receive any royalties under those agreements either, since my royalty accounts remain unrecouped.” (View: Tekashi 69 Broke Or Smart Business Move For His Comeback)
