Troy Ave sued

Troy Ave sued for Disputed track for his song “Chuck Norris.”

Regarding his 2016 song “Chuck Norris,” Troy Ave is being sued in federal court. According to the corporation representing the song’s producer, CITO, the rapper who is currently incarcerated is not entitled to receive money from the song.

In The Struggle Productions, LLC filed the lawsuit on April 12 after discovering through court records that HipHopDX was able to obtain that “no compensation or payment has ever been provided to, or even offered in good faith, to the owner of the musical work incorporated into a highly successful song.”

Despite the song garnering “millions of compensated plays on Spotify as well as on many other commercial distribution channels,” the firm asserts that it has not received any royalties on the song. Troy’s music “was released without authorization and compensation,” according to the statement, which is against their rights.

Producer Ruben D. Sosa, Jr., also known as CitoOnTheBeat, or CITO, was signed by In The Struggle Productions, LLC. CITO has created hits for artists like Cardi B and Lil Yachty. The business, which signed Cito to a contract in 2012, is suing Troy for a large amount of money.

In other words, the company is requesting a total of $1.8 million, plus punitive damages, for $150,000 for “each act of infringement,” punitive damages to be decided at trial, $250,000 in misappropriation costs, $250,000 in attorney’s fees, $300,000 in trademark infringement fees, $350,000 in violation of publicity fees, and $500,000 in unjust enrichment fees.

Back in February, Troy Ave (real name Roland Collins) began serving his prison sentence following a shooting incident in 2016 that resulted in the death of his bodyguard.
