Chris Brown and Drake stole an artist’s work for their hit No Guidance, at least that’s the story of Brandon Cooper and Timothy Valentine.
Cooper and Valentine, who go by Mr. Cooper and Dum’n Skillz, are taking Chris Brown and Drake to court in a lawsuit, claiming that they jacked their song. That song in question is called “I Love Your Dress.”
TMZ reports that Cooper and Valentine say their song came out three years before CB and Dizzy’s track. They also claim that an analysis of the beat, lyrics, hook, and rhythmic structure of the song was performed and it proves the duo jacked their song.
Specifically, the singer and producer claim their track has the lyrics … “She got it; she got it” repeated 16 times while CB’s and Drake’s has “You got it, girl; you got it” at least 11 times
It is also claimed that even “non-expert listeners” can hear that the song is 100% stolen. They are suing for copyright infringement and looking for “big damages” according to the report.
Drake and Chris Brown’s camp declined to comment on this ongoing legal issue.
