An agreement has been reached between Rapper Travis Scott and a member of the hip hop group, Three 6 Mafia following a copyright infringement suit filed against Scott months back.
DJ Paul sued Scott in April alleging that Scott’s track “No Bystanders” from his latest album “Astroworld” infringed Paul’s copyright for the 1995 song “Tear Da Club Up” and seeking a payment of $20 million for damages
Lawyers for Scott and group member, DJ Paul reportedly said that the parties had reached a tentative settlement agreement and they need some more time to sign all of the paperwork and make a settlement payment.
Their submission was filed at the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on September 27.
According to the initial lawsuit, DJ Paul alleges that the cadence and sound are virtually identical and strikingly similar although Scott’s recording does not include the exact lyrics of the chant in ‘Tear Da Club Up’.
The plaintiff reportedly said that the chant used by Scott for much of the performance was exactly ‘tear da club up’, describing the act as infringement.
