(AllHipHop News) According to reports, the estate of Jahseh "XXXTentacion" Onfroy was hit with a $1 million lawsuit over the late rapper's breakout hit “Look at Me.” The song's co-producer, Jimmy Duval, is seeking damages he believes is owed to him.
Duval released the following statement about the suit:
It was my intention to keep the pending matter involving the estate of the late XXXTentacion a private matter. However, in lieu of recent developments and out of respect for someone who was truly a legend in his own right and someone I called my friend, it is imperative that I clear things up. It is important to note that as the producer behind “Look at Me," an inarguable platinum hit, I was removed from all credits, which in turn meant that all rights and royalties owed to me, were immediately averted. It goes without saying that everyone deserves credit for their contributing works. My friend is no longer with us and I'm only asking to remain a part of the legacy that we created together with “Look at Me." X changed my life and the lives of many others and we want to continue widening the positive impact that our music creates. I would never under any circumstances disrespect X or his legacy. I'm only asking for what is rightful and fair.
"Look at Me" is certified platinum by the RIAA. The record, also produced by Rojas, was included on XXXTentacion's 2017 mixtape titled Revenge. Onfroy's mother, Cleopatra Bernard, runs the XXX estate.
