There is no official date on when NLE will go to court.

Just over a couple of years ago, NLE Choppa really broke into the mainstream with his 2020 album, Top Shotta. It was a huge project for him for a few reasons. Firstly, compared to its predecessor, Cottonwood, which is also NLE's debut, it nabbed more features. The first of the Cottonwood series only included two artists and one was for a remix. While Meek Mill and Blueface are still big names, those were the only guests. Even though Top Shotta was longer in length, it still contained more names. Lil Baby, Latto, Roddy Ricch, and Chief Keef all did their thing.

Secondly, NLE also had more bangers in the tracklist. These also helped mold him into the rapper we know currently. "Walk Em Down" set the bar high for him but he has been able to replicate that level of songwriting. Another solid track is "Who TF Up in My Trap." It samples the iconic "Everlasting Bass" from legends Rodney-O and Joe Cooley. Unfortunately, according to a report from AllHipHop, we have come to learn that he never got permission to use it.

NLE Choppa Is Going To Court

Music Business Worldwide was the first to bring this about and they have learned that a lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on Tuesday (October 3). One of the official statements read, "The composition of [Who TF Up In My Trap] substantially comprises the composition of Everlasting Bass and is either a verbatim copy or encompassed and embodied in an audio sample of Everlasting Bass found in the infringing work." Other defendants that will be joining NLE include Juicy J, Project Pat, DJ Paul, and more.
