Lil’ Kim Sued By Reggae Artist Tanya Stephens for Plagiarism

LILKIM2.jpgBrooklyn rapper Lil’ Kim is being sued by Jamaican reggae artist Tanya Stephens because of a song on her most recent album, according to the New York Post. Stephens, whose latest album Rebelution is slated to hit stores tomorrow (August 29), claims that the lyrics to Kim’s song “Durty,” from her 2005 LP The Naked Truth, are nearly identical to Stephens’ recording “Mi and Mi God.” The lawsuit, filed last week in Manhattan federal court, seeks ownership of the song, as well as the rights to all past and future royalties. In 1999, Kim reportedly flew Stephens to New York to record vocals for a song intended for one of her previous albums. There has so far been no comment from Kim’s camp addressing the lawsuit.

    “In 1999, Kim reportedly flew Stephens to New York to record vocals for a song intended for one of her previous albums.”

    this probably means that Kim paid the
    bitch for writing the song and now
    Tanya is unhappy for some reason.
    seems like Tanya is tryin’ to get over
    and get some money.

    Some of us don’t like her because she is fake and arrogant with no talent. She was put on by Big and wouldn’t have had success without him. She might still get love if she didn’t try so hard to be Italian. Fake eye color, fake hair, nose job havin’, fake breasts, borrowed rap…

  • real reppin hiphop

    sounds personal 2 me, but kim doing her thang anyway, fuck you, who r u? everybody not go be lil’ kim supporter or fan, why comment or even read anything with her name 4 that matter, cause u cant help it, deep down u adnire her…who wasnt put on by somebody, big was put on by puff, then he grew biger than puff with success, just because kim piad this spicy breath bitch homage and mentioned a phrase, that doesnt entitle her 2 a goddamn penny, kim used her own lyrics if u stop hatin on her and really listen 2 the music, it was dope as hell 2, and whole lotta other people, the album stop selling cause she wasnt there 2 push it as a artist with any project, it did pretty good 4 her not 2 have done any performances or appearances since it dropped, so let it go, and by the way she has paid her dues, kim is sweet, u just jealous its her!!! what u listened 2 a few of her songs, and felt little? lmoa

  • Who me?

    Feels kinda fucked up when a reggaeartist turns to the system, in this case I’m disappointed at Tanya!

  • sankofa sankofa sankofa

    good its time get rid of the wack and talentless. she basically came up on biggie sack. big ups to sistah tanya for getting hers.

  • jon jon–23

    I can express my views wether you agree with them or not. No need to get emotional, this is my honest opinion of Lil’ Kim. She is talentless in my book, but if you like her, knock yourself out and put some money in her pocket. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and she is obviously going to be subject to many opinions because she is famous. I don’t hate her(I don’t hate anyone) but most of her music sucks in my opinion. Plus add in the fake hair, nose-job, fake breasts, bleached skin, Italian references, and borrowed lyrics. And oh yeah, learn to spell and write decent sentences first. “adnire”? or admire? Go back to school… Try and finish the 7th grade this time. Lol!

  • BinkBink

    What tha….this bitch done went off about her some Lil Kim! I heard of fans boo, but it sounds like ya’ll fu**in’! Do she pay you for all these publications on here? Because if not, you doin’tha way mostest! and i mean it just like that! You stupid to think you can convince people to ride for a “Fake a** bi***” like Lil Kim! She may be Sweet, but Sweet ain’t what we buyin’! She should’ve spent that time in Jail pumpin’ out some real lyrics of her own instead of sittin’ on her fat azz dreamin’ about a damn welcome home BBQ!

  • 8thstreetdyme

    Yo, what the fuck is up with that psycho girl(real reppin real hip hop), damn girl get a muthafucking life, sounds like an obsessed fan to me. Shit, do u know her personally? I don’t think so. Don’t get me wrong lil kim is sweet, I met her before, but you’ve got to admit it, she act like she really wants to be italian. Don’t get mad cause u know its true. Hop off her implants dammit. And one more thing, take a fucking grammar class or read a fucking book. Learn how to write a proper sentence and spell words right. Can u say hooked on phonics.

  • http://n/a stimapati

    fuck kim all these rap dudes trin to get paid of dancehall/reggae artists Tanya get yo paper girl big up rasta!!

  • a reader

    it is personal.. niggaz hatin on chicks WOW.. the world is turning gay.

    Anyway, I don’t think she gon’ win that law suit.

  • just a person who read some of the silliness on here and had to say something

    check yo facts ya’ll! im not a fan of either (meaning i havent paid any of their bills)so i feel im pretty unbiased. but ive heard the songs in question. she did steal it. and please believe that just as big as you think kim is here, tanya is bigger in her music world. so no need to get any attention from the media. she’s been out way longer than kim.
    and the song that kim flew her in for was a totally different song. the song kim stole came out before tonya appeared on any track for kim. the song kim sang was just on her recent album last year. she flew tanya out in 99.
    its the principle. ya’ll talking about other rappers who sample/steal from other artists. they actually got permission from someone to use the song. and when they dont they get sued too. its a business and you gotta handle yours. the point tonya is making is that kim didnt even have respect enough to ask for it. that aint gangsta! i hope tonya wins on that basis. you cant just use peoples full song. that ain’t homage, that’s robbing. wether the song made money or not isnt the issue. its the prinicple. if it were about money i dont think she would sue bc i dont even think that song came to the mainstream outside of the people who bought that album to make too much money anyway.

  • mel

    You ppl need to pay attn. Tanya’s song is since 1997, kim jus release her album 2005. Kim did steal the song. Tanya doesnt need money, but its her song and she wrote the words. so kim should pay up. what the hell.. y’all need to really sit down and think, fo real.. cuz y’all aint saying nothing but TOO TOO!!

  • Trey

    Kim did say some of her lyrics. She did not steal the whole damn song. She only song parts of it in her chorus. What about the other 85% of the song. Tanya is tryig to get some publicity. That song isnt even a hit off her album. Another thing, the album has been out a whole year and why is she just now trying to sue her. Its nothing but publicity.

  • tkatlien

    Why do so many people hate on Kim. If you like her you do, if you dont you dont. I dont like 50 cent, but I dont go around bashing him in every thread or article that comes around. Some of you all need to get a fuckin’ life. Your life is based around the internet. Cyperthugs get on your job.

  • REAL REPPIN HIPHOP

    Tanya has all rights to protect your property, and the pursue of legal action is quite fair and just. Tanya doesn’t need Lil’ Kim’s money (Kim must be broke by now), Tanya is defending her hard work.

    listen Tanya wrote that song & was surprized that it was on kim’s album tanya’s name was no where in the credits lil kim is a theif & she stole Jr Gong’s song welcome to Jamrock & all she did was say kingston jamaica put ur lighters up in the end of the song…. she deserves to be sued because that’s disrespectful & criminal.

    & di res a uno eediat blind followers weh nuh know nuttin bout tanya & dancehall music need fi go look a life!!! to Rass!

  • Get it Right

    First of all Tanya Stephens is one of the best Reggae artist that I have ever heard. Her lyrics always makes a lot of sense and she has been a round for a while. Just because America isn’t that familiar with her music doesn’t mean that she should not be rewarded for her talent. If she choses to sue it’s her decision! If any of you took the time to listen to her music you would know that she can stand on her own two feet, her lyrics are educated and just leavs your mind thinking. Tanya is as real as it gets and to not stand up for what’s right would not be Tanya!

    i admit jcan ppl copy alot of american crap but go ahead & sue them its illegal Tanya is a different kettle of fish she writes her own stuff good uplifting music & Kim could at least put her name on the song that is criminal Kim is a theif & welcom to broklyn is crap …. if uno want to see real ganstas come to tivoli or better yet mountain view

    tanya is the real deal. and when are all these other hip-hopperz and rockers gonna give proper respect to the jamaican artists like King stitt and u-roy the godfathers of hip-hop or lady saw on no doubts cut was she in the video they shot in JA I didnt see her STING from the Police puts on a first class reggae show cuz he recognizes and pays tribute to the roots of his groups musical success hip-hop artists should big-up the reggae with vocal and financial support .final note been round the world and jamaicans have more class and culture than most I meet. one love one world

  • http://xxlmag.com hensley

    tanya is the real deal let her take you back before BET and MTV when are all these rappers hip-hoppers and rockers gonna give reggae and the artists the proper recognition and support they need artists like u-roy and King stitt the godfathers of hip-hop or lady saw i didnt see her in No Doubts video. Sting pays it back with his reggae festival lets see some of these other borrowers do the same RESPECT TO ALL MUSICIANS AND ARTISTS EVERYWHERE. LUV YA TANYA

  • HyphyQueen

    I dont believe that all Kim’s lawyers would let Kim just steal an entire song…I agree w/”Pop A Poppa”, i think she signed a bad contract and now she wants some more money. its probably like Terrell Owens signed a contract, then realized he’s worth more than he agreed to then he wants a new contract…dipshit, you shouldn’t of signed in the first place…same goes for Tanya’s ass.

  • http://yahoo Empress

    I don’t think that it is wise to make comments such as “patty ass” or “spicy breath” because if that’s what comes to mind when referring to this conflict, that only goes to show how ignorant a class of people can be. If Lil Kim’s greatest support comes from this type of people, then actually I feel bad for her. Regarding Tanya, she is one of the most, if not the most respected reggae female artist. She has successfully been doing her thing for a very long time and it only gets better. She strives maintaining her consciousness, dignity, and independence. She does not need Kims money, however we Jamaicans were brought up to respect principle and morals, and that’s what seperates us in this situation. I’m surprised that people think that just because Tanya is from Jamaica that she is in need of Kim’s money, but like I said before what can you expect from uneducated people. If they could only see what Tanya has accomplished, maybe they would reconsider there assumptions. Tanya is living it up but how the hell would these narrow minded people know that. One last thing, yes we take your music and sing it over and the fucked up thing is it sounds 10 times better. A message to Tanya….. disregard what these idiots are saying because I know you are wise enough to understand their incompetence, keep blessing us with your wicked lyrics, keep up your ambition, and lastly go after this with all you’ve got because what’s yours is your’s and nobody caan change dat! Respect and one love

  • Ace Combat

    The Pot calling the kettle black… For the longest time Reggae DJ’s (Sanchez, Ghost, Wayne Wonder, Singing Melody etc)have been ripping off many R&B artist’s, what hypocrates!!!!

  • http://yahoo Empress

    I would agree with the last comment, however when reggae artists remake another artists’ lyrics, it is done legally. A real hypocrite is one who invites you into their home (in this case Lil’ Kims native U.S.), pretends to welcome you, and then steals from you or stab you in your back. Bless up

  • Ace Combat

    Empress… I don’t know exactly how Lil’ Kim’s situation went down, but if it did indeed happen as you stated then shame on Kim.

    As for other artists… With the increasing popularity of Reggae music, Reggae DJ’s know better than to release a song without getting the proper rights. Many years ago (When the only reggae LP’s on store shelves were re-releases from the likes of Bob Marley, U Roy, Jimmy Cliff etc) this was not always the case, as most Reggae DJ’s (Like the ones stated in my previous post) never aquired the rights for a song, especially because of the fact that Dancehall was in low distribution and demand those days.

    I remember when Danehall music from Mad Cobra, Cutty Rank’s etc only costed a few $ for a .45, or cassete, but now… unless it’s a new Bob Marley’s greatest Hits CD, Reggae Gold or Sean Paul’s latest (Commercial) CD, you won’t find a Good Reggae CD unless you fork out $20+, All thank’s to Royalties, CD Import fee’s (UK and Jamaica), and Music Label Greed.

    I totally agree wit dat. it shows how far back she tryn to steal from.

    And o Real wat ever its name is: Tanya has always been origonal an i dont knw any song she ever sing over. Jamaican artistes may use each others beatz but HARDLY ever use d same lyrics much less an entire song. Tanya is known all oer the world fa being “an edgy narrative of a street smart guerilla poet who continues to break the stereotype of what a female Jamaican artist should sound like. Smart and sexy, jagged and cunning, the lyrics flow out of the speakers and attack the unfortunate victims of her sharp tongue. Armed with a fervent voice and cla**y demeanor Tanya tells her truth the way she sees it, uncompromising and uncensored. The evolution from the love scorned Gangsta Blues is apparent, but does not stray from the autobiographical” and kim is well known fa being a whore. She may not be as well known for her “BRAIN” as lil kim is lol but she is a far better artiste (think about d BRAIN comment i do NOT mean intelligence!) TANYA MY GIRL as U put it YOUR STILL NUMBER ONE WITH A NUMBER 2 PENCIL. Kim writting a song YEAH RIGHT! in wat lifetym? lol

  • Muzikluva

    Lil Kim is a thief! Tanya Stephens doesn’t need to play the blame game nor anything. Kim stoile her music and that’s that! A lot of musicians try to pull a fast one on others who they think are powerless. Tanya did the RIGHT THING!!!

    First off, I have nothing against Lil’Kim but why is it every time a talented up and coming artist try to defend thier own, people get on the net and start to hate and say hurtful and senseless things? Tanya is truly talented and I am proud of her as for Lil’Kim, she is always displaying her disrepect for her gender and race,just the way that she dresses and her awful lyrics. I notice that everything for most Americans(not all of them)is bitch and fuck. Come on !!!!!I guess what you listen to is what you become.
