[E-NEWS]: FAT JOE, REMY MA SUED FOR ALLEGEDLY STEALING 2016 HIT, “ALL THE WAY UP”..

REMY MA AND FAT JOE ARE APPARENTLY BEING ACCUSED OF STEALING THE SONG AND NOT PAYING ITS ORIGINAL COMPOSER.

ON MONDAY, UPCOMING  MIAMI RAPPER ERIC A. ELLIOTT, WHO GOES BY HIS RAP ALIAS FLY HAVANA, FILED A FEDERAL LAWSUIT  IN NEW YORK AGAINST REMY MA, FAT JOE AND FRENCH MONTANA, WHO IS FEATURED IN THE TRACK.

ACCORDING TO ELLIOTT, HE IS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL COMPOSERS OF THE SINGLE THAT PEAKED AT #27 ON THE BILLBOARD HOT 100 LIST AND SOLD MORE THAN 2 MILLION COPIES IN THE U.S. MARKET. HE CLAIMS HE HAS THE “UNFINISHED VERSION” OF THE SONG, ADDING THAT FAT JOE’S RELEASE IS PRETTY SIMILAR TO WHAT HE CREATED IN TERMS OF MUSIC, LYRICS, VOCAL MELODY, RHYTHMIC FLOW AND SOUND RECORDING.

FLY ALLEGED THAT HE CO-CREATED THE TRACK BACK IN 2015. IN THE COURT DOCUMENTS, THE MIAMI ARTIST SAID FAT JOE WENT SILENT AFTER HE GOT THE CHANCE TO LISTEN TO THEIR SONG AND THEY WERE SURPRISED WHEN THE LATTER RELEASED HIS SONG WITH REMY MA AND FRENCH MONTANA A YEAR LATER.

FAT JOE APPEARED TO HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED HIS WRONGDOING BASED ON ELLIOTT’S LAWSUIT BECAUSE THE BRONX RAPPER ACTUALLY AGREED TO MEET HIM AT AN IN MARCH 2016 AND GAVE HIM A CHECK WORTH $5,000. BUT ELLIOTT IS NOW DETERMINED TO GET PROPER COMPENSATION KNOWING THAT THE SONG GENERATED MORE INCOME.

ELLIOTT ALSO REVEALED IN HIS FILING THAT HE DID CONFRONT FRENCH MONTANA ABOUT THE ISSUE. HE SAID THAT THE MOROCCAN-AMERICAN RAPPER GAVE HIM THE SILENT TREATMENT WHEN HE ASKED HIM ABOUT THE STOLEN TRACK OUTSIDE OF DJ KHALED’S STUDIO IN 2017.

FLY HAVANA FURTHER CONTENDED THAT FAT JOE ACTUALLY PROMISED HIM MORE MONEY OVER THE GRAMMY-NOMINATED SONG, BUT HE NEVER RECEIVED ANY. BECAUSE OF THIS, HE IS SEEKING FOR THE PROFITS MADE BY THE TRACK AND HE ALSO WANTS A CO-WRITING CREDIT.
