Upcoming Artiste Sues Fat Joe, French Montana For Boycotting Him Over Hit Single
According to docs obtained by TMZ, Eric A. Elliott (aka Fly Havana) says he's a struggling Miami-based hip-hop artist who co-created the track back in 2015 over the course of a few hours, working alongside rapper Infared.
But, according to docs, Elliott says Fat Joe cheated him out of credit and compensation. Elliott says he nagged Joe about getting a credit, but it wasn't until March 2016 when Fat Joe finally agreed to meet -- at an IHOP, no less and cut him a check for $5k.
In the suit, Elliott says Joe promised more dough would come as the track generated more income -- but Elliott says that never happened. He also claims he confronted French Montana outside of DJ Khaled's studio in 2017 and got the silent treatment.
Elliott's suing to get co-writing credit for the track and other damages.
