Major Lawsuit Alert: DJ Khaled Sued Over Jacking Beat For ” I Got The Keys”
A producer claims he gave DJ Khaled a CD with the beat for “I Got The Keys” on it 8 years ago.
Just earlier today DJ Khaled shared the title of his upcoming album Grateful. Now, more news about the producer has surfaced as TMZ reports DJ Khaled is now facing a lawsuit for his hit track “I Got The Keys.”
According to the report, producer Chris Hill claims that he made the beat Khaled used for the track back in March 2008 for his project Gangsta Boogie Vol 2. Hill says he met Khaled at a nightclub in Atlanta in October of the same year and gave the CD to the producer.
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.
Stay tuned for more details on this case as more information becomes available.
