A production company is suing Trey Songz and others (including Kodak) for some serious cash over his “Bottoms Up” hit. I know, – – I am thinking the same thing(what the hell?) but apparently the production company says they own the rights to the song.

Here’s all the info:

A Washington, D.C. production company has filed an $18 million lawsuit over the rights to the music on the hit song “Bottoms Up” by Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj. Derrick Price, Doc Mob Records and IHip Hop Music filed the lawsuit against Trey Songz, Atlantic Records, Kodak, manager Gee Robertson, producer Kane Beatz and others.

According to the lawsuit, which was filed February 2nd in the Southern District of New York, Doc Mob hired producer Milton James aka “Tony Scales” to produce the original, copyrighted track for “Bottoms Up” for his company, Doc Mob Records. Price and Doc Mob further claim the track was originally produced by James in Price’s home studio.

At some point, James teamed with producer Kane Beatz who added production to the song, which was eventually used by Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj. The lawsuit claims that “Bottoms Up” was contained on Trey Songz’ hit album Passion, Pain and Pleasure but only listed Kane Beatz as producer of the song.

Doc Mob’s Derrick Price alleges that he sent multiple cease-and-desist letters to Atlantic Records and Trey Songz, but they were allegedly ignored by the defendants in the case. Kodak has been dragged into the $18 million dollar lawsuit, for using the song in an advertising campaign featuring Trey Songz.
