Trey Songz And Everyone Involved With “Bottoms Up” Need $18 Million

- By Bossip Staff

Another day, another lawsuit centering around a mega hit single.

Washington, D.C.-based production company Doc Mob Records is joining forces with IHip Hop Music and Derrick Price for an $18 million lawsuit filed against Songz, Atlantic Records, Kodak, producer Kane Beatz and manager Gee Robertson.

The suit, filed in New York on Feb. 2, alleges that Doc Mob hired Milton James, also known as Tony Scales, to originally produce the track under their imprint. James, who produced the track in Price’s studio, later teamed up with Kane Beatz for additional production on the club banger, though Price’s name was omitted from the liner notes on Songz’s album ‘Passion, Pleasure and Pain.’

Doc Mob Records claims that they attempted to reconcile with Atlantic Records, sending them several cease and desist letters that were consistently ignored by the label. Kodak is also listed as a defendant on the case, with the lawsuit dragging the conglomerate’s name into the fold after they used the track in its SoKodak campaign.

We can’t even understand how cases like this still happen.

  • Tino Panama

    You have to give credit where credit is due. He should have gotten co-producer credits if he initially started the production and then someone else finished it up. If the information listed above is correct he should get a nice check.

    They should write original songs with as few writers as possible and not sample other songs to cut down on potential lawsuits. They’re stupid.
