Memphis hip-hop producer and rapper DJ Paul, co-founder of the legendary Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia, is suing Travis Scott over an accused copyright infringement for Travis’ song “No Bystanders.”
Legal documents filed by DJ Paul claim that Travis Scott attempted to ‘jack’ the hook from off the Memphis rap 90s classic song “Tear Da Club Up” by Three 6 Mafia. Tear Da Club Up comes off of the 1995 Memphis rap classic album Mystic Stylez.
The hook for “Tear Da Club Up” says, “Tear da club up, n---a, tear da club up,” while Travis Scott’s track “No Bystanders” chants “F-ck the club up, f-ck the club up (b---h),” which comes off his highly successful “Astroworld” album.
Paul claims the two hooks are virtually identical and not only did Travis put it in his song, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, but also performed it during his Grammys performance earlier this year.
DJ Paul is seeking around $20 million dollars in his lawsuit.
