The track peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100.

According to TMZ reports, G-Eazy and Juicy J are the targets of a copyright infringement lawsuit over their 2017 single “No Limit.” Memphis underground legend DJ Squeeky and Gaylon Love reportedly filed the suit.

The plaintiffs claim Juicy and G-Eazy didn’t clear a sample before releasing the track. The song samples Squeeky’s 1993 regional hit “Lookin 4 Da Chewin.”

Squeeky and Love’s attorney included Juicy J because as a Memphis native, he should’ve known where the sample originated. Other artists could face legal action later, but for now, they’re just focusing on these two. The original track featured Cardi B and A$AP Rocky, and the remix features French Montana, Belly, and Juicy J.

Legally, it’s been a rough week for Three Six Mafia members.

Earlier this week, Juicy’s Three Six co-founder DJ Paul was reportedly sued over an unauthorized sample. Trippie Redd’s single “Death” samples DJ Paul’s 1997 track “Hit A Mutha****a.” However, Reginald Boyland of On the Strength Records claims he won the rights to that song in a 2015 settlement. In that earlier settlement, Boyland argued that DJ Paul’s song samples one of his own, “Pimps in the House.”

In addition to these two separate lawsuits, a group of Memphis-based artists is alleging Paul and Juicy committed “over 150 independent acts of copyright infringement from more than 100 individual sound recordings.” The offending tracks in the lawsuit include classics like “M.E.M.P.H.I.S.” and “Tear Da Club Up.”
