DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia is reportedly suing Travis Scott for $20 million, according to TMZ.

Paul is claiming the chorus of Scott's 2018 track "No Bystanders" is the same as the hook in the 1997 Three 6 Mafia song "Tear Da Club Up." Scott's lyrics are "fuck the club up," but are sung in a similar cadence. He also sang "tear the club up" during his performance at the 2019 Grammys. Listen to both songs below.

The lawsuit is seeking the profits from "No Bystanders," which are estimated to be around $20 million, as well as requesting the song to be pulled. However, DJ Paul makes it clear there is no personal beef in a statement to Complex: "Travis Scott and I have been in touch personally about this matter, he is aware of the situation, as is his label. Everything will be worked out accordingly with proper communication between he, Juicy J, and I. There is no beef, just business. It’s bothersome that media outlets would choose to put out any information without getting all of their facts straight, which would include speaking with any of us about the situation directly. We all have a job to do, I just wish more people would do their jobs professionally. Thank you to those who have. Right now my focus is my new album, the tour I’m about to go on, and all the exciting work that I have coming up for y’all, so stay tuned!" It's been a busy week for Scott's lawyers. The rapper was just ordered to pay $400,000 for cancelling an event in 2018.
