No one knows Tanaka's real name or place of residence, but he filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Chicago charging Minaj with copyright infringement. The lawsuit says that Minaj's collaborators -- producer RedOne and writers Carl Falk, Wayne Hector and Rami Yacoub -- are citizens of Sweden who might have been there when "Neu Chicago" was prominently featured on TV and radio.
Tanaka posted a clip to Soundcloud last year called "Neu starships?" It combined the two tracks for comparison's sake.
