Juicy J Accuses Arby’s of Using Uncleared Three 6 Mafia Samples

This isn’t the first time this year Juicy J has accused someone of uncleared samples.

With another week comes another lawsuit involving Three Six Mafia. On Tuesday morning, Juicy J greeted his Twitter followers with an interesting discovery involving a national fast-food chain.

“Good morning!” he wrote, “I just found out Arby’s used a three 6 sample in their commercial without clearing it.” Juicy didn’t specify which commercial or sample was lifted, and later deleted the tweet.

Uproxx’s Aaron Williams pointed to a 2017 post from Boxden that simply reads, “Whoever does Arby’s commercial is a Three 6 Mafia fan.” The user linked a 2017 commercial for the fast food chain’s Triple Thick Brown Sugar Bacon burger, and Three 6 member Koopsta Knicca’s 1999 track “Now I’m Hi Part 2.”

A quick Twitter search shows viewers who noticed Juicy J’s trademarked “yeah hoe” adlib in an Arby’s commercial as early as April 10.

 

 

 

In the past few months, Juicy and Three Six have sued and been sued by many former collaborators for uncleared sample usage. Most recently, the group sued rising New Orleans artists $uicideBoy$ despite working with the group at one point. The two even posted videos in-studio and tentatively announced a full project before the lawsuit was filed.

Back in March, DJ Paul was hit with a lawsuit over Trippie Redd’s track “Death.” The track sampled Paul’s 1997 song “Hit A Mutha*****.” The issue is, Reginald Boyland of On the Strength Records now ons the rights to the track after a 2015 settlement. The DJ Paul track originally sampled Boyland’s “Pimps in the House.”

Stay tuned for further updates on Three Six Mafia’s many ongoing legal situations.
