All The Way Up… and sued!
Fat Joe, Remy Ma, and French Montana all got bags and bags of cash from their hit song, “All The Way Up,” but another rapper claims he co-wrote the track but didn’t get rewarded for it.
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 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.
