Nipsey Hussle‘s estate is on the hook for allegedly failing to pay a songwriter his due, TMZ has learned.

According to the report, a man named Bradley Davis has filed a claim against the late rapper’s estate, alleging that he, along with two others, helped pen the deep cut “Rap N*****,” lifted from Hussle’s Grammy-nominated album Victory Lap. Davis alleges he wrote the track back in 2013, and even received a copyright for his work on the song, but has yet to see a paycheck.

Davis further claims that he never granted Hussle or his team permission to release the effort and is still awaiting royalties.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, Davis does not specify an amount he is seeking in damages, so it’s possible that Davis wants the estate to crunch the numbers on how much money the song has generated and provide him with an appropriate share. That was the case in yet another copyright claim filed last week by singer Tasleema Yaslin, over another Victory Lap track.

Yaslin claimed she sang a prominent vocal phrase that runs throughout the song “Hussle & Motivate.” She, much like Davis, alleges Hussle never sought her permission to release the track and that she has yet to be paid for her part of the song.

While the sudden interest in Hussle’s estate seems strange, it’s not unheard of.  Creditors’ claims must be filed against an estate within a four-month window after an executor is named. Hussle’s brother, Sam Asghedom, was reportedly named the executor of his estate on August 29, per TMZ.
