The artist said she performed the “ascending four-note vocal phrase featured throughout the song’s runtime, as well as a countermelody in my higher register featured prominently during the song’s chorus.”

In March, Yasin said she was dropping her claim against the estate. However, in newly filed documents, Yasin musician said that the estate run by Sam has not honored their promises.

Yasin describes herself as a creditor who worked with Nipsey on projects “for which he intended to pay her but never had the chance to while alive and which after her passed his Estate administrators have not fully honored to date despite promises to do so and Yasin good faith belief and acceptance of their promises to do so.”

She said to date, “they are in breach of the contract and agreements.”

Yasin demands the judge not allow the court case to close until she’s paid in full. Nipsey’s family has yet to respond.

As first reported, back in October, Nipsey’s brother Sam revealed the last remaining issue for him to handle was the family’s battle for guardianship over Emani.

The two beneficiaries of Nipsey estate’s daughter Emani, who he had with ex Tanisha Foster, and his son Kross, who he shared with Lauren London.

As first reported, Nipsey’s family believes they are better suited than Emani’s mother to take care of the 13-year-old.

In court documents, they accused Tanisha of having substance abuse issues. Tanisha had initially agreed to the guardianship after Nipsey’s death but now says it is no longer needed.
