Juicy J and DJ Paul Sued Over Three 6 Mafia Samples
Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.12.2014



Billboard reports that Juicy J and DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia are being sued along with their label businesses (Select-O-Hits, S.A.T. Entertainment Music and Scale-A-Thon Entertainment) by Reggie Boyland (who owns On The Strength Records and Bank Bag Publishing) for copyright infringement. Boyland filed the suit on August 7 in Atlanta District Court.

Boyland claims that two songs he controls (8Ball & MJG's "Pimps in the House" and "Listen to the Lyrics", from their album Listen to the Lyrics) were infringed upon by Three 6 Mafia several times starting in 1996. He filed copyright applications for the songs in May. The suit doesn't mention whether or not 8Ball or MJG would get any money from the lawsuit. They don't appear to have anything to do with the suit and previously worked with Three 6 Mafia on 2005's "Stay Fly".

Boyland claims that the group sampled "Lyrics" on their second album Chapter 1: The End in "Where Da Bud", which was re-released in November 2013 as "Where Da Bud At?" He also said that they sampled "Pimps" on their third album Chapter 2: World Domination. It was licensed at the time it was released but the five-year agreement ended in 2002. Finally, the compilation album Three 6 Mafia Presents: Hypnotize Camp Posse samples "Listen to the Lyrics" on the song "Fie It On Up." A version of ""Where the Bud At?", "Where's Da Bud Part 2," is on Three 6 Mafia's Greatest Hits. Finally, he says that the Three 6 Mafia were themselves sampled and licensed by other artists.

He wants an unnamed amount in damages and a court order against selling the songs, along with attorneys fees.
