Cardi B is being sued by a pair of producers for copyright infringement. 

Joshua Fraustro and Miguel Aguilar, who go by Kemika1956, claim the rapper stole the beat used in their song “Greasy Frybread” featuring Punkin’ Lusty to create her single “Enough (Miami)”.

In a complaint filed in Texas on July 3, Fraustro and Aguilar accused Cardi B and the song’s producers — James D. Steed (DJ Swanqo) and Joshua Parker (OG Parker) — of copyright infringement of “Greasy Frybread”. 

Fraustro and Aguilar issued their complaint in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

The suit alleges the 2021 single gained popularity after it was featured in the FX series “Reservation Dogs". 

The track was used in episode four of the series with verses from Indigenous rapper Sten Joddi. 

Atlantic Records, Celebrity Booking Agency, and Warner Music Group were also listed as defendants.

Fraustro and Aguilar are seeking damages for copyright infringement, unfair competition, and misappropriation.

“Enough (Miami)” was released in March earlier this year as Cardi’s second single of the year. 

She followed up with her feature on Shakira’s “Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran.” 

While the "Bodak Yellow" rapper has not released a full-length album since her acclaimed “Invasion of Privacy,” which made her the first female rapper in history to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album in 2019, Cardi made several commercially successful singles and collaborations, including “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion, and “Put It On Da Floor Again” Ft. Latto, among others.
