The 'Champions' rapper and his collaborators, DJ Mustard and TeeFLii, have been accused of ripped off Robin S' track 'Back It Up' for their 2014 tune '24 Hours'.

AceShowbiz - Hip-hop stars 2 Chainz and DJ Mustard have been named in a copyright infringement lawsuit regarding their 2014 collaboration with rising singer TeeFLii.

The three artists joined forces for "24 Hours", which became a big hit online, but now the single has become the subject of a legal battle, after the songwriters behind musician Robin S.' house tune "Back It Up" took issue with the melody of the rap track.

In court papers obtained by TMZ.com, the plaintiffs claim "24 Hours" is a rip off of the uptempo beat used on their 1990s song, which they allege was simply slowed down and tweaked for TeeFLii.

They are demanding over $10 million (£7.9 million) in damages.
