Just hours after dropping her new single, the Grammy-winning rapper now faces plagiarism allegations. Both New Jersey rappers Mir Pesos and Mir Fontane claim Cardi ripped off the chorus to theirs. Their song, “Stuck,” initially released in 2020.

Mir Pesos aimed at Cardi by posting a clip of her new video alongside their own. “@iamcardib we want my money,” he demands.

In the raptress’ latest musical effort she raps, “If it’s up, then it’s up, then it’s up then it’s stuck.” In addition, Mir Pesos and Mir Fontane’s “Stuck” features a similar hook: “If it’s up, then it’s stuck / Up then it’s stuck, yeah.”

Cardi B Responds To Stealing Hook

The first clip of Stuck was posted on YouTube on Aug. 6. Following after, the full video showed up in September. Interestingly, Cardi was seen reciting the “Up” lyrics during a YouTube live stream with Megan Thee Stallion on Aug. 7. However, she denies that her song was influenced by “Stuck.”

Continuing, five hours ago, Cardi responds to a fan in a tweet saying:

“Naaa im the type of person that avoids problems & court days,” she tweeted. “If i get inspired by a song I wouldn’t mind giving a percentage or couple of thousand but I never Hurd if this man .I’m glad while I was recording this song in August I was playing wit the hook on this live.”

Fans are quick to defend Cardi against the plagiarism accusations. Fans are arguing that the phrase is part of southern regional slang. In addition, the phrase was used before both artists recorded their songs.

Genius notes that nearly 100 variations of “it’s up, it’s stuck” have appeared in songs by artists including Lil Baby, Kevin Gates, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and Travis Scott, who used the phrase in his JACKBOYS song “Out West.”
