The man explained that he is a musician and record producer based in Wisconsin. He says he created a song entitled “13 Shots” and released it in 2009 on his album “Big Chris Uncut.” Syrrakos said he had the song copyrighted in 2014.
The lawsuit said that in May 2014, Young Jeezy released his hit song “Me Ok” as the first single from his album “Seen it All: The Autobiography” … which debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart with sales of 121K.
