Texas Artist Files $50 Million Lawsuit Against Cardi B

Cardi B, one of hip hop’s biggest stars, is facing accusations from two artists claiming that one of her songs includes elements of their work without permission. The artists from Texas and Oklahoma have decided to take legal action against her.

The lawsuit centers on Cardi B’s song “Enough (Miami).” According to reports, Joshua Fraustro, also known as Sten Joddi, and Miguel Aguilar, also known as Kemikal956, filed the suit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Wednesday, July 3. They allege that Cardi B used portions of their 2021 song “Greasy Frybread” in her track.

The lawsuit was filed in Texas because Fraustro resides in the state, whereas Aguilar is a resident of California. On the “Greasy Frybread” track, Fraustro performed while Aguilar took on the role of producer. According to credits on Apple Music, Kemikal956, who also claims to be from Texas, mentioned in a Facebook post in 2021 that he contributed to producing the song.

The lawsuit explains that Fraustro and Aguilar created and produced “Greasy Frybread” in 2021, and it was featured in the FX series Rez Dogs, or Reservation Dogs. Fraustro and Aguilar allege that Cardi B and other defendants infringed their copyright by reproducing, distributing, and publicly performing elements of their song in Cardi B’s track “Enough (Miami).”


Court records indicate that the artists are seeking $50 million in damages. The lawsuit also names OG Parker, DJ Swanqo, Atlantic Records, Celebrity Booking Agency, and Warner Music Group as defendants.

It remains to be seen whether Fraustro and Aguilar’s case will hold up in court. The outcome of this legal battle could have significant implications for all parties involved.
