CelebNMusic247.com has the latest on Travis Scott who was SLAPPED with a copyright infringement lawsuit by Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul.
If you have listened to the Astroworld album then you may have noticed the blatant Three 6 Mafia part of the song used in “No Bystanders.”
Here is what we’ve learned.
The Blast reports:
Back in April, DJ Paul sued Scott accusing him of ripping off his work. He took issue with the hook in Scott’s song “No Bystanders”, which was featured on “Astroworld.”
In newly filed docs, DJ Paul’s lawyer tells the court the settlement has been finished. “However, the parties require additional time to sign all of the paperwork (including paperwork for the U.S. Copyright Office) and to make a settlement payment. I believe that an additional 30 days will be sufficient to fully and finally complete settlement of this matter, and hope that the Court will indulge the parties one last time.”
The case will be officially closed following the payment.
In the original suit, Paul said the “cadence and sound” of the chat are “virtually identical and strikingly similar” to the hook from his 1997 Three 6 Mafia song, “Tear Da Club Up.”
He accused Scott’s song of featuring, “ “a very distinctive chant of: ‘fk da club up; fk da club up,’ which is clearly the ‘hook’ of the track.”
If you’re a Three 6 Mafia, then you already know it was ripped from them.
