D Chamberz has sued Ice Spice over copyright infringement for one of her hit tracks. The drill artist claimed that the 23-year-old lifted his “In That Mood” song and changed it to her “In Ha Mood.”

D Chamberz shares the same passion for drill music as Ice Spice and has presented oral evidence that she duplicated his “In That Mood” song. He slammed the rapper and her producer, RIOTUSA, with the lawsuit, maintaining that the songs share similar names.

The suer claimed Ice Spice was not only inspired by his song, but she copied everything he did. This included production, messages the lyrics passed, and writing style.

Though both singers — Chamberz and Ice Spice have not worked together, he blamed RIOT for giving the rapper the idea for her big song, In Ha Mood. His explanation for that is that RIOT must have listened to his “In That Mood” song on the radio or in New York City where he lived.

According to the complainant, he hit the studio to record his track a year before Ice Spice dropped her own. Following the filing, he has requested publishing rights, damages, and other financial settlements affiliated with In Ha Mood

Ice Spice’s “In Ha Mood” has insurance by RIAA, which means that Chamberz is allowed significant financial compensation because he claims ownership of the song.

According to HotNewHipHop, Chamberz may not have a shot as his lawsuit was filed after In Ha Mood recorded success. Another stumbling block would be the music genre. Drill music allows for similar beat and slang usage.

Ice Spice is yet to respond to the infringement lawsuit. This comes as no surprise, as the artist likely has her plate full. She is gearing up to release more music, a first-time album, and will perform at this year’s Coachella.
