Travis Scott is being sued by former Three Six Mafia member DJ Paul.
The 42-year-old record producer has filed court documents claiming the 26-year-old Astroworld rapper’s song No Bystanders directly rips off the hook from his track Tear Da Club Up, reported TMZ.
Furthermore, Paul claims that he is entitled to damages that he ‘expects to be in excess’ of $20 million.
Paul claimed in his court documents, obtained by TMZ, that the lyrics to his song go, ‘Tear da club up, tear da club up,’ while Travis’ track says ‘F*** da club up. F*** da club up.’
The Blast reported, ‘Paul says the “cadence and sound” of the chat are “virtually identical and strikingly similar” to the hook from his song, Tear Da Club Up.’
The Three Six Mafia man also claimed that during Travis’ Grammy performance in February, he changed the lyrics to ‘tear da club up.’
An update from TMZ posted on Tuesday night stated that Scott and Paul, ‘spoke on Tuesday and the resolution is expected shortly.’
A rep for Scott also confirmed to TMZ that the conversation between Scott and Paul did happen, although the rep would not elaborate on the conversation.
