(AllHipHop News) Rapper Soulja Boy is facing legal action from a Las Vegas chauffeur who has objected to the unauthorized use of his image in a recent music video.
Kamilah Daily filed suit against the “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” hitmaker, real name DeAndre Way, after discovering the hip-hop star had allegedly filmed footage of the driver during a ride in February 2017 and used it in the promo for his track “Bling,” without the driver’s consent.
Daily is seeking unspecified damages for the disruption the video appearance caused to his employment, as well as compensation for the distress and mental anguish he has endured.
He also requested an injunction against the further distribution of the footage.
According to TheBlast.com, Soulja Boy lost a bid to have the case dismissed earlier this month with the judge overseeing the issue siding with Daily and allowing the dispute to move forward.
The MC also appears to be in need of new legal representation, as his lawyers recently asked to be removed from the case, citing a lack of payment so far, and a breakdown in communications with Soulja Boy and his team.
The rapper has yet to publicly comment on his legal troubles.
