UH OH.. WHATS GOING ON HERE??
If you turned back the clock a few years you might remember South Central’s own TeeFlii and his smash hit “24 hours” which performed well on the charts back in 2014 with featured artist 2 Chainz and DJ Mustard on production. Fast-forward to 2018, and now all three artists are being named in a lawsuit that accuses them of stealing the musical arrangement from house-music artist Robin S., from her own hit-song “Back It Up” off her 1993 album Show Me Love.
The songwriters of the Robin S. record claim that “24 Hours” is essentially the same melody as “Back It Up,” with only a slower tempo and a few modifications. They are looking for a percentage of the earnings generated by the TeeFlii record, that to date has over 25 million views on YouTube and 26 million streams on Spotify alone.
The songwriters are looking for a total of $10 million in damages, while none of the artists involved have commented on the lawsuit.
