Uzi is now free from “Strawberry Peels” suit
Lil Uzi Vert and Atlantic Records have reportedly settled the lawsuit filed by Sun City Publishing over uncleared “Strawberry Peels” sample, per HipHopDx. The song allegedly sampled Blackout's 1995 track “Dim Da Lights” which is owned by Sun City. Both sides allegedly mutually agreed to settle the suit outside the court although the nature of the agreement hasn't been revealed.
An order was issued stating that both sides “have reached an agreement in principle for the resolution of this action, in its entirety, and that they anticipate filing within thirty days their Stipulation to the dismissal of this action.”
Earlier this year, the suit was set to be taken to the federal court, but now Uzi is off the hook.
