A couple of months ago, Travis Scott and DJ Paul settled the $20 million lawsuit Paul filed against Scott for swiping his hook from the Three 6 Mafia cut "Tear Da Club Up" and putting it on his Astroworld track "No Bystanders."

No word on how much they ended up settling on but it sounds like it was substantial because Paul's lawyer is asking for more time to settle the deal because it has so many moving parts.

"Both sides are completely in agreement on the terms of the settlement. However, there are many co-writers on the song/track that is the subject of this action, and it is necessary to get a letter of direction from each such co-writer in order to direct certain entities to pay Plaintiff and his writing partner directly," DJ Paul's attorney Edwin F. McPherson said.

"Although we have received signed letters of direction from five co-writers, I recently learned that we are awaiting signatures on two final letters of direction, and have been assured by representatives of those co-writers that the signed documents are forthcoming," McPherson explained.

From what we can gather Paul, Juicy J., Gangsta Boo, Lord Infamous, Crunchy Black and Koopsta Knicca have songwriting credits on "Tear Da Club Up."
