The Insite has learned that an Ohio man has quietly sued Houston rap label Swisha House. That man, Bradley Tilford, claims he has not received any of the profits from the 2004 Swisha House Hit "Still Tippin". Tilford in a federal lawsuit claims he obtained the rights in September 2003 to the original version of "Still Tippin" authored in part by Randy Jefferson. The federal filing claims just before the song was released with artists Slim Thug, Mike Jones and Paul Wall, Swisha House sent Jefferson a letter ending their agreement to work together after Jefferson had already substantially contributed to the song. Tilford says since he acquired Jefferson's interest in the composition he should be paid some of the profits from Still Tippin. The Ohio resident also claims without "Still Tippin" Houston rapper Mike Jones wouldn't have signed a major label deal - so Tilford is suing Jones as well. Also listed on the lawsuit is Michael 5000 Watts of Swisha House. The latest action on the lawsuit was taken on April 7.
