Miami rapper Fly Havana is suing Fat Joe, Remy Ma, French Montana, and Infrared for roylties in a lawsuit involving their 2016 single "All The Way Up." The Blast reports. Fly Havana (real name: Eric Elliott) says he co-wrote the song and has shared audio of his unfinished version of the song, which dates back to 2015.

Elliott states in the lawsuit that his version, originally recorded with Infrared, is "identical" to the hit single released in 2016. The unfinished version of the song can be heard below. In a 99Jamz radio interview recorded that same year Fat Joe shouted Elliott out as having worked on the song.

According to Elliott, Infrared took the song to Fat Joe and subsequently stopped communicating with him. He claims he received $5,000 after the song was released but failed to receive more money promised to him by the rapper.

Elliott is seeking credit for co-writing the song, royalties from the song, co-ownership of the song, and more. The FADER has reached reps for Fat Joe, Remy Ma, and French Montana.
