According to the lawsuit, Davis copyrighted his music in December 2017. This was the same month Nipsey originally released the “Rap Niggas” single, which ended up appearing on 2018’s Victory Lap.

In Davis’ creditor’s claim against Nipsey’s estate, he reportedly says Nezey and Martin “contractually granted [him] equitable entitlement to royalties as joint authors of ‘Rap Niggas.’”

The plaintiff hasn’t requested a specific amount of money from the estate, whose executor is Nipsey’s brother Samiel Asghedom a.k.a. Blacc Sam. Davis believes he’s entitled to some compensation though and is seeking an accounting of how much money the Victory Lap album has generated to determine his demands.
