London On Da Track Reportedly Being Sued For Not Paying Fellow Producer

By Kevin Goddard

It appears London On Da Track is the latest victim of a new lawsuit. According to TMZ, a producer named Arsenio Archer claims he teamed with London Holmes, bka London On Da Track, and the two created a ton of hit tracks, including "Section" by 2 Chainz, "Sneakin'" by Drake & 21 Savage, "About the Money" by T.I & more. However, Archer apparently never saw a dime for his work, thus is now taking legal action on the ATL producer.

In the documents TMZ obtained, Archer says he co-produced all of those tracks and many more with London, adding key melodies, vocals and arrangements. Still, Archer says London never got his permission to use his work, and never fully compensated him.

However, he doesn't just blame London. Archer's also suing a slew of record labels and publishing companies including Cash Money, Universal, Warner, Def Jam, Boozie Bad Azz Publishing, Young Jeezy Music, and Sony/ATV. He is not suing any of the artists though.

Archer's copyright infringement suit is seeking to get a full accounting of what his cut should be, and most importantly he wants his money. Whether he gets it now remains to be unknown. We'll keep you posted moving forward.

Gucci Mane has announced that he will release Ralo LaFlare, his joint mixtape with Ralo, on July 7th.

Ralo signed to Gucci's Eskimo Records earlier this year. He explained his decision to sign with Gucci in a recent interview with HNHH.

"Working with him, he don't want to go back," he explained. "And I don't want to go back. And people don't know how it feels to even go through that. He know how it feels. Don't no CEO know how that feels,"

"Not to many rappers in the game actually went to prison and almost got their life took away from them, or caught a murder case," he continued. "Me and him, we went through that together. Murder cases, prison. It's just impossible that we even linked up. Because two people like that don't usually come together. He keep me on my Ps and Qs, I keep him on his Ps and Qs. You can't really find that in two people. He's like an older me." (Read More)
