EDM’s prodigy Diplo (Thomas Wesley Pentz) is back at it with another slue of lawsuits. In 2014, DJ Master D filed a lawsuit against Pentz for unauthorized intellectual property (beats) in the song “Fuck Up the Fun” by Azealia Banks, a song in which Diplo produced. Master D stated “Diplo took the beat after a failed deal couldn’t be reached on both sides.
Azealia Banks took to Twitter to call out Diplo on the $20,000 he owes her as part of respiration in the lawsuits. Diplo did not reply to any allegations and the Tweets have since been deleted.
Check out the bottom of this article and compare DJ Master D’s track “Mad Drumz Bubbling” to Azealia Banks “Fuck Up the Fun” for yourself. Although a comparison may be noncore as Diplo clearly sampled the drum-loop.
