GloRilla‘s gold-selling single “Tomorrow” is now at the center of a lawsuit from an artist who says the Memphis rapper and her producer Macaroni Toni sampled his nearly 30-year-old track to create their song … but never got permission.
In docs obtained by this publication Hip Hop … Ivory Paynes of the NOLA-based rap group Dog House Posse is claiming Glo and Toni sampled his 1994 song “Street of the Westbank” to craft “Tomorrow” … claiming it takes key elements from his song, like the piano, cello and drum tracks.
Glo’s record home Collective Music Group and her publishing companies Warner Chappell Music and Sony/ATV Music are also named in the suit.
Her remix “Tomorrow 2” — which features Cardi B — is also listed, as that track also utilizes the same instrumental. Cardi is not listed as a defendant in the case.
We reached out to Glo’s camp to get her side of the song’s origin and production … but, no word back yet.
