Three 6 Mafia reaches settlement with 8 Ball & MJG’s record label CEO in copyright infringement lawsuit 

SETTLEMENT COIN…

 
“Stay Fly” spitters, DJ Paul and Juicy J, have something new to turn up about as they’ve finally reached a settlement with 8 Ball & MGJ’s record label in their MESSY copyright infringement lawsuit. 

 
LOOK AT GOD…

 
SO PEEP…

For some time now, the two Hip-Hop heavyweights–who make up the Academy Award winning rap group, Three 6 Mafia– were in a heated legal battle with CEO of OTS Records and Films, Reggie Boyland, who accused them of wrongfully sampling some classic 8 Ball & MJG tracks. 

 Three 6 Mafia reaches settlement with 8 Ball & MJG's record label CEO in copyright infringement lawsuit 

WELL..

 
Reggie reportedly claimed to be the sole proprietor of the Memphis reppin duo’s records “Pimps In The House” and “Listen to the Lyrics” both of which Three 6 Mafia sampled on their 1996 and 1997 albums Chapter 1: The End and Chapter 2: World Domination, respectively. 

 
SO NATURALLY…

 
LAWSUIT! 

 
Initially, the record label CEO reportedly demanded that the “Poppin My Collar” crooners cough up COIN for unspecific damages and that injunction be made against the group for continuing to distribute their music.

HOWEVER…

 
When ol’ Reg-Reg failed to produce copyright registrations proving that he owned the rights to the songs, both DJ Paul and Juicy called for the case to be dismissed…

 
BUT INSTEAD….

 
On November 5, he opposing parties came to a financial agreement, according to The Jasmine Brand. 

 
No word on how much money the gentlemen of Three 6 Mafia had to dole out in order to satisfy Regie…

 
All we know is that the case is now closed and all is well…
