UPDATE: June 26, 2016:
TMZ has obtained new pictures that allegedly show the extent of Detail's injuries following a supposed altercation with Drake's body guards. According to the site, Detail received a broken jaw and multiple other injuries that required surgery following the run in. "Detail says he was so badly hurt he couldn't work for a year," TMZ reported. "He asked Drake repeatedly, and in vain, to cover his medical expenses. When Drake refused, Detail sued."
See below for the original story.
YG has nothing but love for Drake, but the same can’t be said for rapper/producer Detail. He’s suing the Canadian artist for an assault that allegedly took place back in 2014.
Detail claims Drake offered him a gig as an exclusive producer, but he declined in order to work with multiple artists, TMZ first reported. According to the lawsuit, Drake didn’t handle the rejection well and allowed ill feelings to stew. Then, sometime in June, Drake allegedly invited him to a meeting at the rapper’s home in Calabasas to try to work together again after their monster collab on Nothing Was the Same. When Detail showed up at 2 a.m., he says it was the rapper’s bodyguard Chubbs who greeted him instead. Detail claims Chubbs then sucker-punched him and broke his jaw.
During the alleged beat down Detail says was set up by Drake, Chubbs supposedly yelled: "I will beat all your asses, including your bitches. I don't give a fuck. I will hit you again. Do you think Drake is soft? You think Drake's a punk?"
Detail, whose real name is Noel Fisher, is seeking an undisclosed amount of money for damages. He’s best known for producing hits like "Sexy Can I" by Ray J, "I'm So Paid" by Akon, "How to Love" by Lil Wayne, "We Dem Boyz" by Wiz Khalifa, "I Luh Ya Papi" by Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé’s "Drunk in Love," which earned him his first Grammy. He’s also worked with a ton of other artists including the Pussycat Dolls, Ashanti, Marques Houston, Lady Gaga, Brandy, Shorty Mack, Christina Aguilera, T-Pain, R. Kelly, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and Snoop Dogg. Obviously, this is a guy you'd want in the booth while laying down a track.
Drake previously spoke out about working with Detail on 2013's Nothing Was the Same and how the producer made him a better singer.
"My biggest thing this time was working with my vocal coach, just really finding a different tone. Detail is a huge influence on that as well," Drake toldVibe in 2014. "I’ve never had a vocal producer other than 40, and there were nights where 40 would leave the studio and let Detail vocal produce me. What’s different about Detail, I’ll do a verse in one take with 40; Detail would make me go line by line. It was annoying at first, like who is this guy to tell me I’m not doing it right? But when I listened to the finished product there’d be so much emotion in every line that it was almost like somebody different rapping."
Don't expect another collaboration any time soon.
