Drake is apparently being sued for sampling another artist's work without permission or payment on his wildly successful tracks, "In My Feelings" and "Nice for What," TMZ reports.

Samuel Nicholas III, a musician who goes by Sam Skully, alleges that his song "Roll Call" was improperly sampled by Drake on "In My Feelings." Skully is also accusing the Canadian rapper of stealing another beat for “Nice For What,” Drake's collaboration with Big Freedia.

Skully claims to have released the original music on CD in New Orleans back in 2000, long before Drake's 2018 records. He claims to have not realized his music had been sampled until years later.

Sam Skully is reportedly seeking damages from Drake as well as Big Freedia and three record labels involved: Asylum, Cash Money, and Republic.

With “In My Feelings,” Drake set a streaming record which was only beaten recently by  Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.”
