MIAMI - FEBRUARY 02: A judges gavel rests on top of a desk in the courtroom of the newly opened Black Police Precinct and Courthouse Museum February 3, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The museum is located in the only known structure in the nation that was designed, devoted to and operated as a separate station house and municipal court for African-Americans. In September 1944, the first black patrolmen were sworn in as emergency policemen to enforce the law in what was then called the "Central Negro District." The precinct building opened in May 1950 to provide a station house for the black policemen and a courtroom for black judges in which to adjudicate black defendants. The building operated from 1950 until its closing in 1963. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

The Blast reports:

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, DJ JMK claims he created an instrumental called “Choppa Style Instrumental” and eventually hooked up with rapper Choppa to add lyrics to create a song called “Choppa Style.”

DJ JMK claims the duplicate version copied his “horn riff, arrangement and melody” and used “a piano to copy the horn melody and arrangement” of his song.

He says Choppa eventually landed a deal with Master P’s No Limit Records and another unauthorized version of the song was created, “Choppa Style Remix featuring Master P.”

Over the years, he claims his song was then sampled by Cardi B and City Girls for their song, “Twerk,” by Yo Gotti and French Montana for “Oh Yeah,” and then Trouble’s song with City Girls, “She a Winner.”

DJ JMK is seeking unspecified damages in the matter.
