FROM HIPHOPDX - Travis Scott Sued By Three Six Mafia's DJ Paul For $20 Mill

 

Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul has sued Travis Scott over his song “No Bystanders,”the Blast reports and Pitchfork can confirm. DJ Paul’s copyright infringement lawsuit claims that the track contains a chant in which “the cadence and sound” is ”virtually identical and strikingly similar” to the titular hook from Three 6 Mafia’s 1997 song “Tear Da Club Up,” which DJ Paul co-wrote and performed. He claims Scott did not seek permission to use any portion of the Three 6 Mafia track. He’s seeking $20 million in damages.

The lawsuit also points to Travis Scott’s 2019 Grammys performance of “No Bystanders” in which Scott changed the lyrics to “tear the club up” instead of the unedited version’s “fuck the club up.”

DJ Paul said, via a representative, that he and Travis Scott have been in touch. “He is aware of the situation, as is his label,” DJ Paul said in a statement. Travis Scott’s representatives confirmed that the conversation took place. “Everything will be worked out accordingly with proper communication between he, Juicy J, and I,” DJ Paul said in a statement. “There is no beef, just business.”

Though “Tear Da Club Up” is a Three 6 Mafia track, no other members of the group—including Juicy J and Gangsta Boo—are listed as plaintiffs in the lawsuit. Last year, Juicy and Scott collaborated on the track “Neighbor.” Pitchfork has reached out to Juicy J and Gangsta Boo’s representatives.
