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.
