The estate of Nipsey Hussle may be heading to court. As reported by TMZ, singer Tasleema Yasin has filed a creditor’s claim in Los Angeles County Superior Court, stating that she is owed payment of the Hussle’s song “Hussle and Motivate.” 

Yasin states that she wrote a four-note phrase on the song, which is off of the late rapper’s album ‘Victory Lap’, and that she performed several of the key components on the song as well. According to the court documents, which were filed on September 5th, Yasin stated that she worked with Hussle on the song in 2016 and says that he didn’t get her permission to release the song on the album. 

She is currently looking for a cut as a co-author under US Copyright Law. There is no set amount that Yasin is seeking at the moment.
