Lil Uzi Vert Sued By Sun City Publishing Over ‘Dim Da Lights‘ Sample

Lil Uzi Vert sued for adding his “Strawberry Peels” collaboration with Young Thug and Gunna to the deluxe edition of his last album.

Legal documents reveal that the 27-year-old rapper/singer/songwriter is among those named in a lawsuit over the song.

Along with Uzi, Thug, and Gunna, the song’s producer Wheezy is also named.

Additionally, the record labels Atlantic and Generation Now are being sued as well.

Sun City Publishing is taking these parties to court for allegedly stealing samples from the 1995 song, “Dim Da Lights” by Blackout.

You can see both music videos for yourself below.

Strawberry Peels is hugely successful, amassing over 39 million streams on Spotify and over 4 million YouTube plays.

However, Sun City claims they never gave Uzi – real name Symere Bysil Woods – permission to sample the track.

Asking for $1 million in damages, Sun City says the song has made more than that amount.
