Don’t forget to check out the gallery!
His Name: Clive Tanaka. Who Is He: An Underground EDM Artist. What Does He Have To Do With Nicki Minaj: He’s suing her. For: “STARSHIPS!”
The one song that has pushed many of Nicki’s hip-hop fans away from her music, the root of her and Peter Rosenberg’s falling out/blow-up, the ONE track that had many wondering WTH Nicki was thinking, is a song that was STOLEN?! According to Clive Tanaka’s lawsuit, filed under the company, Tanaka Light Industries USA he says that Nicki Minaj, producer Red One (Nadir Khayat) and songwriters Carl Falk, Wayne Hector and Rami Yacoub are all parts of the theft.
Tanaka claims that the song sounds too much like his own, “Neu Chicago,” and that Khayat and other contributors and citizens of Sweden, so they more than likely heard his song, took it, and turned it into what has been one of Nicki’s most talked about hits.
“We believe they are similar to the point that it is nearly impossible for it to be a coincidence,” says Christopher Niro, Tanaka’s lawyer.
I believe they have a pretty good case on their hands. Listen to Nicki’s version and then Clive Tanaka’s version below.
