Songwriter Files Claim Against Nipsey Hussle Estate Over Unpaid Royalties

  /  09.11.2019

Nipsey Hussle’s estate is on the hook for unpaid royalties.

On Tuesday, a songwriter named Bradley Davis filed a claim against the late rapper’s estate alleging that he, along with two others, wrote the music that was used on “Rap Ni**as” off Nipsey’s Grammy-nominated debut Victory Lap.

According to documents, obtained by TMZ, Davis says he copyrighted his work in December 2017. Davis says Nipsey never got permission to use his work on the album, which dropped in February 2018. Davis also claims he and the other two composers were never paid any royalties.

While he doesn’t say how much he’s owed, he clearly thinks the estate owes him something. Creditors claims against the estate must be filed within four months of an executor being named. Nipsey’s brother, Sam Asghedom, was named executor on Aug. 29.

Just last week, singer Tasleema Yasin filed a claim with the estate, saying she wrote and performed a vocal phrase used throughout the track “Hussle & Motivate.”
