Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul Sues Travis Scot for a Whole $20 Million Dollars
When will artist learn that simple permission goes a long way to save a lot of headaches, legalities as well as money. Someone, please tell Kylie Jenner’s baby daddy Travis Scott that—especially when he’s allegedly sampling music from a legendary Grammy-winning rap group member such as DJ Paul from Three 6 Mafia.
DJ Paul has filed a lawsuit against the “Sicko Mode” rapper. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Paul claims Scott’s song features “a very distinctive chant of: ‘f**k da club up; f**k da club up,’ which is clearly the ‘hook’ of the track.”
Paul says the “cadence and sound” of the chat are “virtually identical and strikingly similar” to the hook from his song, “Tear Da Club Up.”

In fact, Paul says the two are so similar, when Travis Scott performed “No Bystanders” at the Grammys this year, he changed the hook to “tear da club up.”

Paul claims that Scott never asked for permission to use any portion of his song.
“No Bystanders” is a part of Travis’ massively successful “Astroworld” album … which debuted No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. It was also a fan favorite during the rapper’s 55-city tour.
