DJ Quik has lawyered up against YG, Stampede Entertainment and Def Jam over what he's saying is his rightful claim to credit on YG's massive hit song, "My Hitta."
DJ Quik tells TMZ he was instrumental in creating the track, but was omitted from the credits and hasn't seen a dime. The West Coast rap legend went on a Twitter rant Sunday calling out YG and his management team.
