2021 is already proving to be a tense year for Nicki Minaj, who is being sued by a Queens rapper for allegedly stealing his creation and selling it to the world as her song 'Rich Sex'. Jawara Headley, who is better known by his stage name Brinx Billions, is seeking more than $200 million from the rapper. According to reports, Billions wrote a similar version of 'Rich Sex' in 2016 and Nicki then "ripped off" his song from his 2018 album titled 'Queen'. Brinx Billions has a plan to make everyone pay – he might as well be on his way to make billions. He is also suing Universal Music Group, Young Money and Cash Money for $200 million in damages.

Brinx Billions claims that Nicki Minaj told him it would be extremely marketable and become a global hit before she stole the song. He reportedly wrote the specific lyrics "It ain't such a thing as broke and handsome". The rapper also claims that "her song also has similar music, musical notes, musical arrangement, musical beats and musical rhythm."

According to the documents obtained by the publication TMZ, Headley claimed he should be credited as the sole author, creator, composer, writer and producer of the song, adding that The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers reported Headley is already credited as a writer of 'Rich Sex'.

Some of Nicki's fans are pointing out to a time when Brinx was promoting the song. "Brinx a straight up bitch and his lil friend in the comments talking about he was credited without his consent sound stupid asf. I hope @NICKIMINAJ lawyers saved the videos and tweets of his bum ass promoting the record," one added. "@BrinxBillions Is saying that @NICKIMINAJ infringed upon his copy right on Rich Sex without his permission. Back in 2018 Brinx also posted Nicki Minaj on his Twitter account praising her for The Rich Sex Record. Doesn’t seem like a permission issue to me.  #NickiMinaj," another called out.
