DJ Paul Sues Travis Scott For $20 Million Claiming He Stole A Three 6 Classic

DJ Paul wants some big loot from Travis Scott over claims the Houston rapper stole a hook.

(AlHipHop News) Three 6 Mafia star DJ Paul is suing rapper Travis Scott for $20 million over allegations of copyright infringement. "The Sicko Mode" hitmaker stands accused of stealing the hook for "No Bystanders," from his latest album Astroworld, from the hip-hop group’s tune "Tear Da Club Up."

In court papers DJ Paul insists Scott’s refrain, in which he chants, “F##k da club up/F##k da club up,” is almost identical to the one featured on Three 6 Mafia’s 1995 release, on which they repeat, “Tear da club up/Tear da club up.

The veteran star, real name Paul Beauregard, goes on to claim Scott actually used the band’s exact hook during his performance at the Grammy Awards ceremony earlier this year – all without Three 6 Mafia’s permission.

He is demanding damages for the alleged infringement, and estimates the sum should be in excess of $20 million. Scott has yet to respond to the accusations.

He clearly stole the hook. Whether it’s worth $20M is another story.

DJ Paul is now either broke (I doubt it) or just being a fucking bitch ass hater!!! Seriously I don't even listen to Travis Scott but since when does a Hip Hop artist not in their late 50's or early 60's sue an artist for using a hook or words similar to their hook? XXL magazine for year's has had a section called "Borrower" & "Lender"in their magazine's which literally shows line's artists used that either were complete copies of the original line's or were made to sound just like the original line's. Based on DJ Paul's Logic Jay - Z should be suing damn near every one in Hip Hop if you look at that section each month.
