EXCLUSIVE: Rapper Yo Gotti Accused Of Stealing "28 Bars" Track


(AllHipHop News) Memphis, Tennessee rapper Yo Gotti is the subject of a lawsuit that claims he stole his popular song “28 Bars.”

Eric Dion Flemming filed the lawsuit against Yo Gotti and his manager Brandon Cottrell, in United States District Court, for the Middle District of Tennessee, Nashville Division.

According to the lawsuit, which was filed on June 6, Flemming claims that he submitted a musical composition that was provided to an artist name Starlito, who is signed to Yo Gotti’s Inevitable Entertainment.

According to Flemming, Starlito provided a copy of the track to Yo Gotti, who used it for his track “28 Bars.”

The track was offered for sale through a variety of online music retailers, including iTunes, eMusic, CdBaby, Amazon, Spotify, Rhapsody, Datpiff and others.

The track also appeared on a variety of mixtapes, including “All Things White,” “DJ Scream Presents: Cocaine Muzik 3,” “On My Own, Yo Gotti – 5 Star General” and others.

Popular video producer Jordan Tower of Jordan Tower Films is also named in the lawsuit, for producing and directing a video for “28 Bars.”

Flemming said that he e-mailed Yo Gotti about the track, and Yo Gotti did not deny the infringement.

Dion Flemming is suing for copyright infringement and seeks a trial by jury, to determine damages.

    Gotti seems like a real cool dude, i will just make things right and break bread with the dude. A lot of these young cats be making beats and they get taken advantage of all the time. It doesn’t mater if the song is on a mixtape or not, the mixtape is still promoting Gotti brand which allows him to get shows and make money. I hope they work it out though. No need to take this shit to court.

    these up and coming dudes get screwed half the time because they don’t have any type of business game together and just be sending people music in hopes to get their name out there not understanding that once they do that without any kind of copyright or ascap  involved your opening yourself up to getting screwed over and over again.

    • Read the law suit, He copy written the song on September,2011. This is why this lawsuit is going forward. He was smart enough to know he need to protect his work. Good Luck

      • xdc845

        Yeah I read the suit but still there are plenty of ppl out there getting screwed over no paperwork, dude in this case was smart and has his shit together so he should be good
