Rapper Fetty Wap's former bandmate is refusing to settle a legal dispute over the star's 679 hit for less than $3 million (£2.4 million).

MC P-Dice, real name Justin Pope, filed court papers in October (16), claiming he co-wrote the track with his ex-Remy Boyz crew leader and Fetty agreed to hand over just under 17 per cent of the profits made from the single.

However, Pope, who also featured in the video for the chart smash, alleged his name was removed from the songwriting credits and he demanded damages in excess of $7 million (£5.6 million).

Fetty, who disbanded the Remy Boyz last year (15), has yet to publicly respond to the allegations, but he reportedly reached out to Pope and offered to settle the case for $1 million (£800,000).

Pope rejected the figure, and tells TMZ.com it will take three times as much for him to dismiss the case.

"I said 'no'," he explains. "We ain't going no lower than $3 (million) (sic)."

The rapper has also ruled out ever collaborating with Fetty again, insisting he wouldn't be able to fake being friendly: "I ain't good at being phony (sic)," he adds.
