Pop punk band Yellowcard allege copyright infringement...

Juice WRLD faces a $15 million lawsuit, it has been reported.

The rapper released his single 'Lucid Dreams' last year, but now pop punk group Yellowcard are alleging a copyright infringement.

The band split in 2017, but claims that 'Lucid Dreams' has taken chunks of their song 'Holly Wood Died' without permission.

Alongside Juice WRLD the group have filed legal documents against co-writer Taz Taylor, producer Nicholas Mira, publisher BMG Rights Management, record label Grade A Productions, and Interscope Records.

Pitchfork reports that the lawsuit cites an interview with Juice WRLD in which he cites Fall Out Boy's 2005 album 'From Under the Cork Tree' - the record was produced by Neal Avron, who also worked on 'Holly Wood Died'.
