Watch French Montana, Drake’s Festive ‘No Shopping’ Video

French Montana and Drake have dropped their festive new video for "No Shopping," their track off the Coke Boys rapper's upcoming LP MC4. The track marks Montana's first collaboration with Drake since their 2012 hit "Pop That."

Filmed at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic, the video opens with Montana and "El Draké," wearing ridiculous costume mustaches, hosting the Coke Boys Classico golf tournament. The action then shifts to a mansion party where Montana and Drake perform "No Shopping" surrounded by a throng of bikini-clad women.

"No Shopping" is the latest track off Montana's upcoming MC4, which also features the previously released "Lockjaw" with Kodak Black and "Figure It Out" guest starring Kanye West and Nas. MC4 is due out August 19th.

Montana will also spend the latter half of the summer on the road with Puff Daddy, Mase, Faith Evans and the rest of the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour.

‘Iron Man’ Composer Revives Ghostface Killah Lawsuit After Appeal

Ghostface Killah is once again facing a copyright infringement lawsuit stemming from the rapper's Supreme Clientele after an appeals court ruled that composer Jack Urbont, who wrote the "Iron Man Theme" for the Sixties cartoon Marvel Super Heroes, could revive his suit against Ghostface and Sony Music.

Urbont previously sued Ghostface and Sony Music in 2011, arguing that the rapper's Supreme Clientele opener "Intro" and closer "Iron's Theme – Conclusion" heavily sampled the "Iron Man Theme." The lawsuit, filed nearly a dozen years after the Wu-Tang rapper released that solo LP, was initially struck down after Sony made the case that, since Urbont was under the employ of Marvel at the time of composing the theme, it constituted a "work made for hire," meaning Urbont didn't own the rights to "Iron Man Theme," The Hollywood Reporter writes.

However, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals overturned that April 2015 decision, especially the initial court ruling that the "Iron Man Theme" was a "work for hire." In a ruling made Friday, second circuit judge Peter Hall stated that the judge who initially heard the case shouldn't have categorized Urbont's theme as a "work for hire," since it could be argued that Urbont owns the rights to "Iron Man Theme." Urbont is listed as composer on the song's 1966 registration. However, the matter of ownership is between Urbont and Marvel, not Urbont and Sony.

Furthermore, the judge determined that, even if Urbont doesn't own the rights, Ghostface Killah and the song's producer RZA likely infringed on the theme's audiovisual rights; a recording of "Iron Man Theme" was never officially released, meaning that RZA likely lifted the sample from the Marvel Super Heroes show itself.

"While Urbont may possess a 'master tape,' it is undisputed that prior to the release of the Supreme Clientele album in 2000, the sound recording of the Iron Man theme song was never released as an independent audio recording without a visual component," Hall wrote in his decision. "It is clear in this case that the allegedly infringing work could only have been copied form the audiovisual work, and therefore constitutes infringement of the audiovisual work."

However, since Marvel has never come after Ghostface legally for frequently using the "Ironman"/"Tony Starks" alias – the rapper even filmed a cameo for the first Iron Man, a scene that was ultimately deleted from the film – it's unlikely they would file a lawsuit 16 years after Supreme Clientele's release.

Prince’s Possible Heirs Narrowed Down to Six

The Minnesota judge presiding over Prince's estate decided Friday that several people who had claimed to be heirs of the flamboyant artist were not related to the musician.

The Associated Press reports that Carver County Judge Kevin Eide threw out 30 individual claims to Prince's estate. He also ordered genetic testing on six people previously assumed to be related to Prince. Four of the artists siblings or half-siblings – Tyka Nelson, Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson and John Nelson – and a possible niece and grand-niece, Brianna Nelson and Victoria Nelson, will be vetted in the process.

Eide's elimination process also allowed him to exclude people who had said that Prince's father was someone other than the man listed as his dad in court records.

When Prince died of a drug overdose this past April, he left behind no known children nor a will that would direct his estate. As a result, Eide has been presiding over the administration of the estate.

Eide decided in May that he would use DNA testing as a means to ward off false heirs. At the time, he set a limit of four months for people to come forward with claims to the estate.

Prince's first wife, Mayte Garcia, gave birth to a son in October 1996, but he died within a week due to the rare skull defect known as Pfeiffer Syndrome. Garcia reported later that the couple had gotten pregnant again but that she suffered a miscarriage. They announced their divorce in 1998. Prince had no children with his second wife, Manuela Testolini.
