Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J and DJ Paul Sued For Jacking Over 100 Songs

A new lawsuit alleges that Three 6 Mafia stole a good chunk of their catalog.

A group of Memphis-based artists are claiming the group committed "over 150 independent acts of copyright infringement from more than 100 individual sound recordings."

"M.E.M.P.H.I.S" and "Tear Da Club Up" are among Three 6 Mafia's hits that the plaintiffs are saying they produced and wrote lyrics for, but were never paid or credited for their work.

The group says that they met and began working with Juicy J and DJ Paul in the 90s when the group was getting established and that the Three 6 Mafia masterminds ended up making millions off their unremunerated studio efforts.

The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages and an injunction blocking Three 6 Mafia from continuing to profit off their work.

Ironically, Travis Scott just settled a $20 million lawsuit filed against him by DJ Paul for swiping "Tear Da Club Up" and putting it in his track "Nobystanders".
