Miami producer DJ Khaled could have a hefty lawsuit on his hand after being accused of jacking another artist's cover art to promote a new song.
According to reports, rapper Kolley has already sought legal action against Khaled.
Here's the deal ... Kolley dropped his debut mixtape, "RNS" about 6 weeks ago ... with a pretty distinctive cover shot (left) -- a closeup of his face, clenching a gold chain in his matching gold grill. Cut to this week ... when DJ Khaled released "They Don't Love You No More" with artwork that's pretty much identical to Kolley's We're told Kolley's peeps at Bigg Bank Entertainment just sent a cease and desist letter to Khaled's label ... warning them to stop using the cover art STAT or face a legal s**tstorm. (TMZ)
Kolley has appeared to address the matter on his Twitter page.
"Imitation is the best form of flattery," Kolley tweeted April 29. (Kolley's Twitter)
A new trailer of Khaled cruising through rap star Jay Z's childhood neighborhood boasting about the mentioned track landed online this week.
"I am honored to work with Jay Z on my new album. I've worked so hard to get to this point. My fans expect me to be greater and keep being great, so I made it my business and I made it a mission to secure more wins." (WSHH)
The mega producer also hinted at a new album dropping in the coming months.
