It’s going to be interesting to see how the Beyhives spend this messy legal battle with the late Messy Mya’s estate and Beyonce.

That’s according to TMZ reports, Beyonce stole a famous recorded line from a dead New Orleans rapper and then sampled it in her song, “Formation,” without permission … according to a new lawsuit.
The estate of Anthony Barré — aka Messy Mya — just filed suit against Bey for allegedly using a small, but memorable, piece from his 2010 video “A 27 Piece Huh?” and sprinkling it into her hit song … which has been certified gold.
Barré’s estate claims Beyonce straight-up ripped the deceased artist’s exact “I like that” phrase — in his voice — without permission … and then went on to make millions off the track. Barré, a YouTube star, was shot and killed in 2010.
The estate goes on to claim they tried talking to Beyonce about the sample … but says she blew them off.
Now, the estate is asking for more than $20,000,000 in back royalties and other damages for using some of his final recorded words.
