2MILLY, CREATOR OF THE MILLY ROCK SUES FORTNITE FOR USING HIS DANCE WITHOUT COMPENSATION

2Milly is lawyering up as it was announced this week that he would be filing a lawsuit against Epic Games, the creators of the smash hit game ‘Fortnite’.

2Milly released his viral song “Milly Rock” 4 years ago and the accompanying dance has been a stable within the urban dance culture ever since and beyond ever since.

The rapper had the following to say

“I was never compensated by Epic Games by Epic Games for their use of the Milly Rock. They never even asked for my permission. I am thrilled to have David Hecht and his team at Pierce Bainbridgerepresenting me to help right this wrong. This isn’t the first time that Epic Games has brazenly misappropriated the likeness of African-American talent.”

The news follows the game maker failing to properly compensate BlocBoy JB for implementing his Shoot dance into the game.
