A judge has dismissed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Megan Thee StallionCardi B, and more over explicit lyrics in the rappers’ songs “WAP” and “Thot Sh*t.”
According to legal affairs journalist Meghann Cuniff, the suit was issued by Denise “Necey X” Jones, who apparently has some ties to rapper/songwriter Pardison Fontaine, né Jordan Kyle Lanier Thorpe.
Thorpe co-wrote the critically-acclaimed song, “WAP,” and is the ex-boyfriend of Thee Stallion.
U.S. District Judge Andrew L. Carter dismissed the case where the plaintiff claimed the “WAP” lyric, “pu**y so wet,” was taken from her 2019 song, “Grab Em by the Pu**y.

The Judge ruled that the lyric is “neither original nor unique to the Plaintiff,” as the phrase is “employed frequently in popular culture and other Hip-Hop songs.”
Further in the dismissal, Judge Carter pointed out that the lyrics aren’t similar, as he noted that the expressions are “plainly different” and even though two words of the lyric are identical, someone “cannot exercise a monopoly over this two-word phrase.”
"The concept of using 'p**** so wet' as a rhetorical device in a song is neither original nor unique to Plaintiff…"

Jones also claimed that a lyric in “Thot Sh*t” was from her song, too. She accused the Traumazine rapper of using her line, “I got that ni**a wild’n,” to create the lyric, “why you in the club with ni**as wild’n.”
In the suit, Jones attempted to make a connection between Thorpe writing “WAP” for Cardi and Meg and also the Section 8 rapper dating the Houston rhymer.
The Judge referenced other songs that have used the expression “ni**as wild’n” in some sort of fashion, mentioning Rick Ross’ “Phone Tap” and QUE’s “OG Bobby Johnson.”
The dismissal motion includes a brief hip-hop music history of the words Necey claimed Cardi and Meg ripped off. @RickRoss' "Phone Tap" gets a shoutout.

"Simply put, Plaintiff does not own these words and cannot stop others from using them."

Claims have also included allegations that Megan and Cardi were mocking her in the music video for “WAP” — as her stagename is from star of the 1997 film B.A.P.S.
The title for the single is notably a play on the cult classic, where the main characters are Halle Berry as Nisi, and the late actress Natalie Desselle who played Mickey.

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are currently gearing up for the release of their new joint single “Bongos,” releasing this Friday.
