Jumping right on this one, because it’s straightforward.

This morning we have headlines that Juice WRLD is getting sued again already. (Sting pretty much owns “Lucid Dreams” now, rightly.) This time because a young artist from Colorado, Jerome Willisch, who works under the name Fly Jxy, is under the impression that “Lean Wit Me” is the same as his song “Ice.”

Here’s Lean Wit Me.

And here’s Ice.

The lawsuit was evidently filed by Fly Jxy’s parents. Maybe they’re lawyers?

Sometimes though, these things are simple; much of the time actually. Here, I hear what Fly Jxy hears. And I get it, but he’s mistaken. “Lean Wit Me” is not like “Ice” in any way that will matter. There’s no way forward for this argument, musically speaking.
