Migos is catching some heat for their hit "Walk It Talk It" single. According to The Blast, which recently published official court documents about the matter, a rapper from Atlanta, Georgia is suing the rap trio for allegedly stealing the song from him.

The rapper's name is Leander Pickett. But, he goes by the stage name M.O.S. and he's claiming that Migos completely ripped off his song that's titled "Walk It Like I Talk It." The song was off of his previous mixtape It's Like a Movie and he recorded this track in 2007. It wasn't until this year that M.O.S. copyrighted the song.

The rapper says that he and DJ Folk released "Walk It Like I Talk It." Reportedly, Folk worked for a third party company called CTE Music, as well as worked with a man named Coach K. As many Migos fans may already know, Coach K is the owner of Quality Control Music, who reps the Culture trio. M.O.S. states that he found out that Migos was going to be releasing "Walk It Talk It" in January 2018. That's when things went left.

M.O.S. is now claiming that no one from Quality Control Music or Migos' camp asked him for permission to use his track. That's why he's planning an injunction against Migos because they've gained much profit from the track since it was dropped earlier this year.

The ATL artist wants Migos to fork over all of the money that they've gotten from the song's massive success. He's also asking for a undisclosed amount of money in damages. Both Migos' "Walk It Walk It" and M.O.S.'s "Walk It Like I Talk It" are below. Listen to both of the songs and let us know if you think that M.O.S. may have a case with his argument in the comments below.
