Leander C. Pickett, known by his stage name M.O.S., recently filed a copyright lawsuit against the Atlanta trio over his song “Walk It Like It Talk It,” according to TMZ. He claims he recorded it more than 10 years ago in 2007 and that Migos’ “Walk It Talk It,” which features Drake, uses a “substantial portion” of his version.

He’s also suing Capitol Records over the issue and wants the group to stop performing the tune at live events. 

Pickett said he filed a copyright for his song in March 2018. Migos’ “Walk It Talk It” appears on their “Culture II” album, which was released in January 2018.
