Trey Songz Facing $18M Lawsuit Over Bottoms Up

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

Oh boy.

Trey Songz has found himself in the middle of a hefty lawsuit over the rights to his hit song, Bottoms Up.

Derrick Price of Doc Mob Records has filed an $18 million lawsuit against Trey, Atlantic Records, Kodak, manager Gee Robertson, producer Kane Beatz and others over the rights, claiming they were not given credit where credit was due.

According to the lawsuit filed last week, Doc Mob hired producer Milton James to produce the original, copyrighted track for the company, but at some point, Milton took the jam to producer Kane Beatz and they gave it to Trey. Supposedly, Derrick Price sent multiple cease-and-desist letters to Atlantic Records and Trey to get the song out of production, but he claims he was ignored. Furthermore, Kodak is being thrown into the mix for using the song in one of their ads.

We feel like this happens much too often in the business. Producers and labels need to have a lot more communication…and a lot more respect for their work.
