DJ Paul wants some big loot from Travis Scott over claims the Houston rapper stole a hook.
However, in a new statement, DJ Paul downplayed the legal drama and revealed he and Scott are "in touch personally" about the matter.
“Travis Scott... is aware of the situation, as is his label. Everything will be worked out accordingly with proper communication between he, (Three 6 Mafia star) Juicy J, and I,” he said. "There is no beef, just business. It’s bothersome that media outlets would choose to put out any information without getting all of their facts straight, which would include speaking with any of us about the situation directly.
"We all have a job to do, I just wish more people would do their jobs professionally. Thank you to those who have. Right now my focus is my new album, the tour I’m about to go on, and all the exciting work that I have coming up for y’all, so stay tuned!”
Scott has yet to respond to the accusations.
