According to a recent report from TMZ, Atlanta trio Migos is being sued for their “Walk It Talk It” single. The hit track, which also features recently turned 32-year-old star Drake, is said to have been ripped off of a track that was put out over 10 years ago. In the papers obtained by The Blast, Leander Pickett — who goes by the name M.O.S — claims he recorded a song titled “Walk It Like I Talk It” back in 2007 and copyrighted the track in 2018. The track also appeared on his DJ Folk-hosted mixtape It’s Like a Movie. Pickett then learned of the Migos track in January of this year when it was released on the trio’s Culture II album. He has since filed a lawsuit against Migos and Capitol Records accusing them of using his track without permission and he wants the trio, including rappers Quavo, Offset and Takeoff, to turn over all the money that they have made.
