Just after announcing his new album “Greatul,” DJ Khaled is falling victim to a lawsuit. According to reports Khaled is being sued for his hit record “I Got The Keys” featuring Jay Z and Future.
Chris Hill says he produced a beat in March 2008 which appeared on “Chris Hill Beats (Gangsta Boogie Vol 2).” He says he met Khaled in October 2008 at an Atlanta nightclub, and handed him a CD.
Hill says he never heard a peep from Khaled — then lo and behold, 8 years later, ‘Keys’ dropped. In the lawsuit, Hill says he immediately recognized his handiwork. He notes just how popular Khaled’s track has become — more than 79 million YouTube views.
He’s suing Khaled — not Future or Jay — as well as Sony Music and various producers for a cut of their immense profits.
