Earlier, Sting appeared to be cool with Juice WRLD sampling his 1993 song "Shape Of My Heart" for the hit single "Lucid Dreams" which was produced by Nick Mira.
Mira wrote in a tweet "Fuck @OfficialSting and his whole team" yesterday, “After taking 85% of Lucid Dreams (for interpolating Shape of My Heart, NOT EVEN sampling) he threatened to take us to court for trying to get any %. Sting ALSO flexed stealing our money and said it put his grandkids through college.”
Internet Money’s @nickmira_ is calling out @OfficialSting for taking 85% of Juice WRLD’s ‘Lucid Dream’ fair or nah? Let’s talk about it! pic.twitter.com/fZl8GcClNY— UPROXX (@UPROXX) November 17, 2018
Juice WRLD's rise to stardom was perhaps because of "Lucid Dreams."
